    To be fair, all Laquer Head does is play games.

    The i5 is still a better processor for that. Just sayin.

    Besides he games at 4k, none of these processor wars matter. The 1080 Ti is still the bottleneck.

    For shits and giggles I priced out new Ryzen stuff and came out around $850 with everything I'd buy (mobo, CPU [1700X], RAM, new M.2 SSD, CPU cooler). Granted the bump isn't THAT huge from my 4970K but with Ryzen I would definitely go back to AMD. The only reason I went to Intel was because AMD was shit back when I upgraded a few years ago.

    and that $850 is usd$ but yeah,I get that Ryzen has been priced very aggressively.

    I'm still looking at options, and I'm not closing the door on AMD..just yet.... there I said it

    Are you actually insulting us for recommending you a better product for your money? Either go i7 or Ryzen. i5 as things currently stand is foolish.

    Edit: This post is slightly redundant now that I read the second page. I'll leave it. :p

    After like 6 years of i3, i5, i7, the name i9 just sounds like a parody.

    Dat competition.

    Apparently i9 is reserved for processors with 6 or more cores.

    Which makes sense in the product line where i3 is dual core + HT, i5 is quad without HT, and i7 is quad with HT except for that one entry level kabylake-x that is labelled as i7 but does not have HT?
