    No, No you should not buy it buy it. I bought it and its awful. For editing its a godess then you have a intel and it out performs it. I am bringing mine back sigh, back to the good ol FX 🙂

    Who cares about FPS your brain doesn't process images as FPS, so long as it's over 60 it'll be fine. The 1080ti isn't even in the top 10 of GPU's used, only 1.4% of the entire steam community actually uses it, so why do you even benchmark with it? You need to benchmark with the equipment that the majority of people actually use.

    And im going to wait for the 8 core second run as these do not overclokc well but i run all my CPUs at like even my 6600k was at 4.4

    Ryzen is brand new architecture. Wait until games are designed for 8 cores.

    Also about that 1080 ti, Im going to be gettin a 1080 for 1440p my 1060 isnt cutting it for this shit anymore.

    r7 1700 price/perf but still out of my budget so r5 at q2

  • March 4, 2017 at 12:19 am

    well ill tell u i got MYZEN 1800x and im 90%gamer and upgrading from fx8350, from about 3-4 years ago. i like the idea of trying to do editing and what not and over all its 40%-50% better then what i have now and thats always a plus. i mean this time for the high nd part im paying 300 more but ill be able to upgrade in 3 years with the last gen for this socket maybe pushing me another 3 years then i can upgrade again, who knows maybe for me this cpu will last me more the 3-4 years. i like to upgrade every 4 years thats when i feel like i start feeling a need for an upgrade.

    First a lot of boards are shipping with crappy BIOS versions and need to be updates and give some crazy scores and horrible memory support. Second few if any current games support their SMP in their software, so some actually run SLOWER. AMD will work things out. New drivers and patches will boost the performance. Newer games will come supporting it better. I do not by a system to last 2 years. My current system over 7 years ago and I plan to have me next one last just as long.

    Ok… This is my situation. I am looking at about $800 and I expect to keep this system for a while. My current system is a Phenom II X4 945 (3.0Ghz), 4x4GB DDR3, a 1TB 7200rpm HDD (2TB backup). I am looking to upgrade my system sometime this summer and my target budget is $800. I have a nice Antex case with good cooling and an Antec Earthwatts 650w power supply. I plan on keeping the same drives as well as my LG Blu-ray drive. This is what I am thinking… Ryzen 1600 ($175-225), ASROCK B350 board ($90), 2x8GB DDR4 ($110), 256GB M2 NVME drive ($130), and maybe an RX580 ($250-300). The GeForce 1070 is still $400 and out of my price range and the RX 580 should land solid in my price range. An Intel chip, I would be limited to say a i5-7500 and that is 3.4-3.8Ghz with 4/4 cores/threads. The 1600 should run the same speed and have 6/12 core/threads. I think the AMD route would be more future proof. Usually after about 3-4 years I double the memory, drop in another M2 drive and add a new graphics card I was late upgrading the graphics card last time and had to settle for a $140 GTX 950.

    games won't be made to take advantage of multithreads… and none will be made for project Scorpio…. oh wait. =)

    Stop testing at 1080p and help move gamers to 1440 or better.

  • March 4, 2017 at 5:58 am

    Think u mistaken about pcie lines of the ryzen,most ppl say it is 24(16+4+4).

  • March 4, 2017 at 6:21 am

    Oh look I fact checked your claim that you benchmark in 720p…. Liars. Here's your OWN article about Kaby Lake running benchmarks in 19×10…

    Here's the 6700k being benched at 1366×768

    Nooo come on guys, gaming doesn't "suck" on Ryzen. It's still a 100+ fps CPU in full HD. For god's sake!
    If you're recording your gaming you win with Ryzen. If you are streaming, you win. If you do heavy multithreading (multimedia, video encoding, rendering, gamed development) tasks you win. And most likely you will win long term once games will be optimized for AMD and more cores. It happened in the GPU branch, so why not in CPUs?

    Fools need to realize that AMD did an amazing job with what little resources it had. Now dose that not enlighten you to what Intel was doing all along? Ripping the a** out of its customers being that it held a monopoly in the market. And the issue with the law suit is everyone’s problem, because Intel was paying retailers to help them artificially inflate the price of a cpu while killing a competitor whom had costumer friendly priced products. I predict that if these Intel a** wipes and all other consumers don’t halt Intel here, by evening out the market. The price of all Intel products will double and triple. It is like being in the desert and needing water, meet a water seller by luck, and he is charging you two million for a glass. Intel = pay out you’re a**.

    I have a 3770k at 4.4ghz on air with a gtx1080 playing at 1440p recording with OBS with a 1080p downscale. I've been waiting to upgrade my 5 year old 3770k.. what should I do?

  • March 4, 2017 at 1:11 pm

    i will change from my 8350FX to Ryzen. I`m Multitasker / Gamer. Because i have to change the hole Platform… it dosen`t matter where i will go (prices)… Bud really, why shoult i pay the Bucks for 4 Cores, when i can get 8 for the same Price??? Because some games make 100 fps instead of 90??? no way…

  • March 4, 2017 at 3:34 pm

    +PCWorldVideos guys don't use your Nvidia GPU's to do rendering/encoding? Which are WAAAAAY faster than using ANY CPU? AND you're talking about that as a plus of Ryzen? A single GTX 1070 is twice as fast as the 1800X for those application…for $150 less…

    Seems fairly clear to me you could just use you standard 7700K rig and a GTX 1070 to do all that and if you need more PCIe lanes, there's really only on option for that anyway. Will such a setup cost $200 more than a 1800X? sure, but it'll be WAAAY faster in those types of workloads and double as a high end gaming rig in your spare time.

    should put links in the description to all the parts

  • March 5, 2017 at 8:54 am

    i preorder mine 1700 a few fps diff never killed anyone.

  • March 5, 2017 at 5:17 pm

    hardware is not the problem, software is the problem. games will be optimized for 8C/16T and BOOM! Ryzen will win fps battle against i7 4C/8T. I hope in the end games on pc will be optimized like console games because until recent VR optimizations gaming on pc was really bad optimized.

  • March 6, 2017 at 3:05 am

    Practically speaking, I haven't used 1080P in nearly two years. I left 2560 a year ago. I currently work and play at 4K and the bottleneck is always the GPU, and it has been for quite some time. The bottleneck will remain at the GPU for the foreseeable future as we head towards 8K Nirvana. Who cares about 1080?

  • March 6, 2017 at 7:04 am

    Hey man, First i like to say that i love the show. So keep up the good work.
    There by i have to say that iam abit disappointed that not one of you talk about R7 and that all of them Oc to about 3,9-4,1ghz. Can it be right? that the price is almost double for 100mhz. there must be something wrong. hope that u can tell me what is going on here.

  • March 7, 2017 at 9:58 am

    But you got to understand not one of them test you did were even optimized for AMD Ryzen at all
