Ryzen 5 1600x £215.00 @ amazon.fr

Lowest price for a 1600x? This is actually £220-221 including the shipping the OP forgot to mention. :) - Uncommon.Sense Read More

Is Ryzen still really picky about RAM?

Is Ryzen still really picky about RAM?

Motherboard bios updates improving this quite rapidly, but currently still manufacturer dependent so worth researching motherboard before buying. However getting 2933-3200mhz support now as standard with more boards, and probably more to follow.

1600 comes with a cooler and can overclock to 1600X speeds easily https://www.amazon.fr/dp/B06XNRQHG4/

If you game and do any sort of productivity/streaming, there's basically no reason to consider an i5 over these 6 cores.

This..

Save yourself a few quid and the cost of a cooler and just get the plain Ryzen 5 1600 for £199..

I currently have 2666MHz RAM ready and am waiting for my 1600 to arrive,are the performance gaps between 2666 and 2933-3200 big enough to warrant returning the 2666 for a 2933-3200?

When you say productivity, what do you refer to?

Photoshop, Excel, word?
Or rendering videos?

Heck even video rendering is mostly done with GPU acceleration...

But many productivity apps run better with faster cores rather than more cores.

If you mostly game and do the normal productivity, the i5 is superior. If you stream games, the ryzen pulls ahead... But what percent of gamers steam?

Whut, pretty much every single review shows that if you are considering a new system at this price point then the 1600X is the only sensible option, given it runs at 3.6GHz/4.0GHz boost even the single thread performance will still be within a few percent of the i5/i7 K series chip(s) all running stock.

Yes, buy an i5 now if you want to waste your money, on a 4c/4t CPU, that is fast becoming irrelevant. I am pretty sure that if someone offered a 6800K CPU at £220, then it would be scorching hot, but it's slower than an i5... ooo see what I did there?

Thing is, in most games released nowadays, the i5 is maxed out 100% on all cores. Where as a 1600 or 1600x is only using around 70%. Quad cores arent cutting it.

How? As I said on another Ryzen thread, as someone who has both - the Intel chip is going on eBay. Ryzen (with memory and updates) is there re max FPS (with reserves in the tank) and the min FPS is night and day. AMD all the way...

Video rendering is one of the most CPU intensive workloads you can do.

Sometimes even background workload or alt-tabbing or steam or Windows will require some CPU time. It just makes sense to have more cores for future proofing, especially if the performance difference is a couple of fps for most games at 1080p

It's all about 4K nowadays

Have these sold out?

The 1600 works out at GBP 211.79 through Amazon fr which isn't a great saving.

1600x is just pre-order and the price is a fair bit higher than stated in the OP

You have made a claim about min fps now multiple times even after I presented a min frame comparison that shows Ryzen behind. You are just repeating this unproven claim.

Prove your min fps claim. On the vast majority of games. It may even be hard to find 3.

You are not interpreting my post as intended. Ryzen is good when rendering with the CPU. But many\most rendering is done with GPU acceleration. CUDA for example.

So if the one major benefit is video rendering, but most rendering is done on the GPU, the benefit is not really seen.
