    In April of 2017, AMD blindsided Intel by launching brand-new Ryzen series of processors. How does second-gen Ryzen stack against the competition in 2018?

    What i like about AMD:
    - lower price
    - excellent performance
    - lower temp

    I think i got my first pc in 2013 or so, and that CPU was AMD Radeon A10-6700. Games like Rayman Legends it handled well, but other high end-games it struggled with. And most importantly it devoured the power of my battery.

    Wish i was tech-savvy back then. As an adult now i will listen!

    After video: I like my games to have good graphics and be smooth af. But 10 frames difference? I wear glasses. My eyes are too weak to spot such bagatel. And that i have to restart between modes is literally a 1st world problem to me...
    I think i'll survive.
    Extra cores to save me from switching out my cpu before it is time seems like a good time saver. And the whole thing is cheaper.
    Like I said... 1080p with 60fps and max setting, that's all i need.

    I bookmarked Ryzen 7 2700X. Seems like my go-to CPU for the time being.

    *3-15-2019* ; I just purchased an I5 9400F for $169.00 on Amazon (I think it's since jumped to $175.00) I could have purchased an R5 2600 for $159.00 or an R7 2700 for $230.00. The I5 wipes the floor with the R5 2600 even when OC for basically the same cost. So in my case at least, it wasn't about money but performance. I simply couldn't justify buying a slower CPU for basically the same price. Which brand is in my machine sincerely doesn't matter to me. My current rig is powered by AMD, so...

      what if your budget? Wait a few months for zen 2 to drop, some of the specs are nuts, the leaked 3700x is rumoured to have 12 cores @5ghz. Plus they are forwards compatible, so if u want u can upgrade to zen 3 later in 2020, plus AMD has not pulled nearly as much BS like intel when they used subamdient temps to OC their 28 core rebranded Xeon to 5ghz.

    After upgrading my older BOXX AutoCAD Workstation/Server system, I basically have an extra EATX Case, Xeon CPU, EVGA GPU and 16GB DDR3 1600MHz ECC RAM sitting there (just really need to change/upgrade the Mobo as it died and cooling for the CPU chosen to have a working system).
    he question is, does it even make sense turning it into a gaming rig for my son, or would spending the extra for a newer Mobo/RAM/CPU setup make more sense for the types of games he plays (Ark Survival, Overwatch, Black ops 4, Apex, Rainbow 6).
    Ok so thes are what I'd like the options/comparison for:
    1) a new ASUS P9X79 WS (LGA2011) Mobo with my Xeon E5 1620 (4 core supposedly overclockable on this board form 3.7 to 4.2GHz) , 16Gb DDR3...
    or 2) a new ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VI HERO (AM4) Mobo with new Ryzen 2600 (6 core) & new 16Gb DDR4..
    or 3) the 6 core Intel you rig you have in the video above..
    Other items I already have that would be common across the builds:
    Case: BOXX 8920 EATX Workstation/Server case with 2x 120mm front grill case fans,
    PSU: EVGA 850GB 80+
    GPU: 1x EVGA GTX 750 Ti FTW,
    SSD: Intel 180Gb running Win 10 OS

    To me isnt really fair to compair a 404 euro (im from italy) to a 329 euro cpu. What matters isnt "how is it supposed to challenge" like if the top gamma amd has to challenge the top gamma intel, to me what actually should matters is the price. What could you offer for a determined price? I7 8600k is still 75€ over the amd, to make an equal comparison a 330€ intel should be against the 2700x. What could be expect from amd if they were to make a 400€ cpu? Probably something good

But there's one thing he's not gonna show you.When you look at the cpu from the right angle, they're as thin as this playing card. amd whole case is an illusion, a magic trick

    I will never purchase an AMD MB or CPU. I dont trust their products and their shoddy drivers. The Hex Core i5 8400 works great. A little competition is good for business. Intel has too many CPU's available to buy. I do wonder why i3 6100's and 7100's are priced higher than an i3 8100 quad core.

    AMD was and still remains the king of price performance ratio. And with Zen AMD has proved that they can do much better than what you call the poor man's choice. In this day and age if you are paying $100 for 5fps that would be called stupidity, i have been a system builder for 15years or so, built many intel and AMD the only generation i saw intel kick AMD to the curb was when they launched Bulldozer which was a fail so miserable i did not move from my Thuban. I recently moved to Devil's Canyon got a cpu mobo psu and AIO combo for $457 which is quite cheap for where i am from, i don't regret it the i7 runs great but still with what AMD is offering i would not recommend intel as a best buy for the price point.

    Best cpu's for gaming are intel due to fantastic ipc, which games love for higher fps.. BUT... The 2600x is right there at gaming performance, plus streaming and production to boot.. For best all around multi-use cpu Ryzen, to meet the Ryzen's performance here you need a 8600k 9600k to multitask gaming and streaming and you will be paying 80-100 bucks more than the 2600x which is the cost of a B450 motherboard for your Ryzen CPU.. So for the cost of your intel cpu alone (8600k-9600k) you can purchase a Ryzen 2600x and a B450 Motherboard, and the cpu comes with a good cooler... But if your a gamer ONLY and don't stream 8100 is great, but the 8400 is king for bang for buck intel gaming cpu…

    *Fucking hate Ryzen CPUs. They suck at gaming. An intel i5 beats Ryzen 7 2700X in gaming. This just shows how bad Ryzen is. I would never buy Ryzen CPU until I see new Zen processor actually beating intel in gaming. But AMD's GPUs are pure gold. They age better than nvidia. AMD GPUs get better and better over time through driver updates. For example, AMD Vega 56 was a gtx 1070 competitor at launch. Now, it competes with RTX 2060/1070Ti. Another example: AMD R9 290X was a GTX 780Ti competitor. Now it's performance is close to GTX 980/1060.*
