......wait... what.... WTF just happened
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.
I also swear and drink....
But, yeah I basically use my rig for gaming in 4K..
some work, but that's basic word, excel, powerpoint shizz
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
You can't close something that was never open....
I'm not that reluctant to change..
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.
Check your PM.. lol
Wait for the i9
The i9 will blow his budget entirely. lol
Trade in the Land Rover. #worth
..I hate computers..
What is this, computerhaterforum.com ?
After like 6 years of i3, i5, i7, the name i9 just sounds like a parody.
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?
I picked my new shit.. flame away if yall must..specs in sig... nice little upgrade for me.
Thanks @Intel_man for help
The rest of you...your stink brings tears to eyes...all of you!!! cretins..
Ha, you did end up getting the Dark Rock Pro 3. lol
Let me know what you are getting for temps. I'm tempted to go with the 7700k but I heard they run HOT...
