My 7th gen i5 at work feels like molasses when multitasking compared to my Ryzen machine.I've been avoiding upgrades for a little while now and doing fine with a 6600K. Ryzen has been interesting to me but these new parts will likely get me to upgrade. The price for those cores and speed is amazing.
Does your workplace install a bunch of security agents too? I've got a newish i7, with 16g of ram and an ssd and my work machine feels like a 386. A CPU core is routinely pegged at 100% dealing with scans from the array of shitty software.
That's good to know. My system is starting to feel sluggish when running a few programs. There are more background processes running than I realized. I have a feeling part of it is from Windows 10/chrome updates.
For quite a while I thought I had an actual problem as I thought no way an i5 would be this slow. Personally never used one for heavier work before.If I had known the Ryzen 5 2600 was gonna be so legit, I would have waited 2 months and ditched the 8400 build.
My friend with 3-4000 hours in CSGO dropped from ~350 to ~250 FPS (on Windows) going from an Intel 6700K to a Ryzen 7 2700X, which he wasn't too happy about. But he can live with it, since his Gentoo compiles about 2-3x faster now.My Ryzen 7 does not bottleneck my 1080 at all at 1440p. Even being a first gen. I expect these new chips to game just as well if not better than Intels.
And I'd expect nothing less. Intel > AMD in strictly gaming, particularly high FPS scenarios.My friend with 3-4000 hours in CSGO dropped from ~350 to ~250 FPS (on Windows) going from an Intel 6700K to a Ryzen 7 2700X, which he wasn't too happy about.
