    Re: QOTW: Has 2nd Gen Ryzen done enough to sway you towards AMD?

    Just started gathering the components for my first new build in 10 years. It's going to be a Ryzen 2600 build.
    A no-brainer really. What i will save on comparable Intel parts will get me a much better graphics card.
    If the past 5 years tell us anything...The current Intel architecture is going nowhere. Yields are terrible, and 10nm has been delayed ANOTHER year.
    Brian Krzanich sold his Intel shares for a reason.....

    yep looking at the 2600, but ram is still quite expensive may have to wait a bit longer

    Just about - it's still tricky as my balance between media creation and games is changing so much.

It is sad but true, I did the same thing with my rig, I ended up getting the 7700k instead of the 1800x.
    I bet you and your brother are the type of people that don't realise that any performance gap is:

    A. Actually only 10% using a GTX 1080 while gaming at 1080p, which would be unnoticeable to the naked eye.
    B. The gaming performance gap would be totally negligible at 1440p/4k or if you're using cards under the GTX 1080, which is like 95% of people.

    So please, I hope you game with a 1080 or 1080 Ti at 1080p res, otherwise your choice is based on false assumptions, like a lot of people. That, or it's wilful ignorance taking this line 'Ryzen is still behind in gaming' when you know that to eek out a small (unnoticeable) performance gap between the 2700X and 8700K, you have to have a very niche and expensive set-up.

    A mini-ITX x470 and a sale would be enough for me to jump.

    It's achieved a good 90% of my expectations and it a fantastic product from a relatively well run public company (as in, they aren't swimming in money like Apple and Intel currently mess with).

    R5 1600 is even more of a bargain since the price drop.

    Would it be worth getting a 2nd gen board and pairing it with that.

    'Worth' is very subjective. For someone who would neither upgrade nor overclock their CPU, there's no compelling reason to look past a cheap A320 motherboard. Beyond that you're trading off price v feature set on a board by board basis....

    Not enough for me yet.
    I'm having to replace my main PC and Intel is the only chip I'm looking at.
    If AMD brought out a chip that out-performed Intel by 10% then I would reconsider, but until then......

    Re: QOTW: Has 2nd Gen Ryzen done enough to sway you towards AMD?

    I'll certainly be using one of these for my next build, I do a lot of photo/video editing and rendering so this is a huge boost to me at a decent price.
    With regard to the whole single-threaded/gaming performance, the fault doesn't lie with AMD or Intel, it's the developers. What strikes me is that while multi-core CPUs have been around for over a decade, game developers still don't utilise them, most professional software does and utilises CUDA too so for me I really do feel for gamers. SW houses should be using multi core support and there really is no excuse for not doing so.
