In a mere technological sense, it's an expected minor update compared to what is currently on the market.
If you consider AMD's state prior to this, it is a major comeback. Whoever pulled that off, in the engineering department, is a genius.
If you consider Intel's state prior to this, they'll have something faster out within a year and keep the competition interesting, as in the old days.
Ryzen is not a technological miracle, it is close to a miracle in the engineering sense, considering AMD's state.
So, it won't bring the performance Intel's first Pentium did when it came out, nor the performance of some groundbreaking processors that came after the original Pentium (Pentium 3, Athlon 64 (x2), Core i7).
The Intel's fanboys will never betray him. Even if they organized their own version of the Gulags in genocidal mode in the middle of the Fifth Avenue. The same apply for AMD / NVIDIA, is like a religious thing.
I think that with proper TIM on their next CPUs, Intel will remain popular with gamers due to the overclocking capabilities of the 7700k/the cpu refresh that will replace the 7700k.
Considering how many games require pure power over 4c/8t and disregard anything over that, a 7700k will likely remain a better pick for those games than anything AMD offers.
But I think the 7700k is the only one where Intel has the upper hand, AMD takes the rest. If I'm loading up for the future, I'm getting a 1700x and seeing how far it'll OC.
AMD Ryzen Benchmarks: Ryzen 7 1700X Beats Core i7 6800K in 9 out of 13 Games Tested
"The Ryzen 7 1700X benchmarks showcase the $399 CPU outperforming $420 direct competitor, whilst offering two more cores, four more threads, higher clock speeds and a lower TDP. This is pretty impressive isn’t it?"
Standby power of 62w vs 98w (-57%) seems a standout. Gaming is also -40% power.
Dolphin seems to favor fast cache, intel did something with haswell that gave incredible boost to dolphin performance and it is probably related to the cpu cache changes they did, while most other applications got a small boost in performance dolphin got something like a 40% boost or something. Other intel cpus didn't have anywhere near bump in performance in dolphin as haswell. Probably it is not that easy to overcome that performance boost for amd.
When multicore gaming becomes prevalent AMD will be the better choice, unless intel cuts their prices a lot. Just because things like dolphin only use 2 cores it doesn't mean that other games will continue to do this.
Multicore is the future, and AMD are a lot more competitive for this.
Second hand prices are meaningless. On the right day you can get stuff off ebay or wherever for peanuts. You can even get stuff for free if he's your mate. You should only base on new prices, as second hand prices are so volatile and random.
Reminds me of a lot of threads on reddit "I got a gaming computer for $100" and then when you read it you realize that it was almost gifted.
Not really, gaming performance is bad on the Ryzen currently simply because most, if not all of the games in the market are not optimized for its architecture(yet).
People seem to have forgotten it is a new CPU, and most gaming benchmarks are done with older games(likely optimized for intel when they are dominating). Watch this video for a more elaborated explanation. IMO, it is kicking Intel's ass for sure.Ever wonder why the Ryzen only failed gaming but beats Intel in everything else?
I've recently been thinking of buying a pair of bluetooth headphones, I've been looking around for some reviews, but I'd also like to ask the people here who have had experience with some

I got a mayflash n64 adapter and I have several n64 controllers. The official n64 controllers I have work with the adapter, but the unofficial controllers I have dont even read at all, I installed antimicro to do further testing to see if the buttons and sticks are even being detected when they...
just lol if you buy intel in the YOOL 2017
There are some things happening this year in the land of consumer CPU's and Ryzen is currently hot in the press.
Off the bat AMD's new 1800X CPU is looking at 650USD...
Not long ago my bro an I bought the same exact hardware (check sig), at the same time, from the same shop. Lately I OCed mostly to improve framerates in PCSX2 and few things surprised me.
We both have a G0 revision but with different VID, his is 1.325v and mine is 1.3v. Why this...
This is both a simple question and complex question. So I recently started down the path of retro collecting and made the decision to skip collecting NES and SNES since those were easy to emulate since forever. After talking to local collectors I became aware more modern emulators are available...
