RGB Stock coolers, this CPU war was over before it begun.

Ohhh look, it's a sellout twat who "knows" the tech things!

I am looking forward to am4 simply for cheaper rigs for workplace if nothing XD
Small 5a9e0aa09f2eaba5606b1e1b04c5254e
Still no single core benchmarks. I know more cores gets more done when supported but I don't want my single threaded tasks to be slower after an upgrade. More to research!

Yea, didn't expect AMDs own show to provide that. They are starting to hit the rigs so over the next week or two hopefully we'll see some solid real world scoring instead of ideal. But, it is shaping up very nicely.

... halp! I'm starting to be tempted...

@blaknite there was one image posted recently here, but the Intel comparisons looked like they had been disadvantaged.

This one: https://www.thelanbox.com.au/s/26504#... (Their 7700K benchmark performs significantly worse then my 6700K)

Yea, that's why I'm keen to see it in real world in normal people's hands instead of marketing teams and so on. Though at least they seem to have given the Intel rigs at their release show more power than their own. The more I read though, the more I want to see these performances so I can decide if I actually concert haha

Thanks @boboon though as @crazymuffins said I'm still keen to see some benchmarks from overclocking enthusiasts to really get a feel for what it can do. Exciting times ahead!
Small e080439caab675163c261fd88b3f9457
Looks like XFR and multi-threading is gonna make a significant difference, even single threaded benchmarks seem competitive.

Awesome. I'm hoping there is good headroom for overclocking. Any upgrade I do needs to outperform my existing OC on my 2500K.
Small 8b937608c49c9df79a22944d36b702f7
Surely any new processor is going to perform better than your OC'd 2500 anyway?
Small 5a9e0aa09f2eaba5606b1e1b04c5254e
Not for the price I'm willing to shell out. A 7600K can OC to about 15% real world faster than the 2500K OC and is going to cost me about $700 all up. That's still not significant enough gains for me to spend the money. If this gets me that kind of gain for under $500 I'm going to start consider it.

Maybe when vidya games/other software you use actually start using multiple threads.

The prices on PC Case Gear seem to be pointing at RYZEN being about a $900-$1000 upgrade to go all out. For me that's gotta be some serious per-core performance gains.

Perhaps when the 1600X hits the market I'm going to see exactly what I'm looking for.
Small e080439caab675163c261fd88b3f9457
It does look like that's gonna be the way to go, Ryzen 5 is probably gonna be a sweet spot just like intel's mid range.

Literally just looked at that
Small 19f573652518aabe4602ac223fbe8f95
Yea considering this would require a new mainboard too I'm hesitant.
Small 46163492e6cd6bb8a18e655429516d05
ofc it would require a new mobo
Small 19f573652518aabe4602ac223fbe8f95
My point was it becomes a large investment in AMD that I'm not prepared to make.
Small 19f573652518aabe4602ac223fbe8f95
(not yet)
Small 46163492e6cd6bb8a18e655429516d05
another $150? just do what im doing and wait for real world specs
Small 19f573652518aabe4602ac223fbe8f95
Yea but that $150 closes the gap on an Intel chip that I don't need a new mainboard for. Plus yea, I don't expect the real world specs to be as impressive - but I'll remain hopeful.
Small 8b937608c49c9df79a22944d36b702f7
@blaknite Sure, in clock speeds it might only be a 15% increase... but surely a 6700/7700K would encode video and things far faster than a 2500? Not to mention power usage and what not?
Small 8b937608c49c9df79a22944d36b702f7
@Vash, for those of us who are running 2000 model Intel chips who can in theory only go up to a 3000 chip without an entire, essentially new system, build, they're not badly priced.
Small 5a9e0aa09f2eaba5606b1e1b04c5254e
Yes, it would encode video faster, but that's not the tasks I want per-core performance. If a game pegs a core of my current CPU going to a slower per-core but more cores is going to be a step backward.
