do NOT purchase this CPU, my god this is slow, glitchy and basically a poor all round performer...i hate mine and im saving hard to upgrade for a new i5, this thing is poor all round...
Can you buy a better performing i5 CPU for under fifty quid now?
Yes, you can

The 2500K is available for £50, it's significantly faster than this :p

I've just scored a brand new, unwanted, Fx8320e for £65 posted which should OC to about 4.5GHz hopefully and see me 'til Ryzen drops in price by about 50% :D

Good luck with that, good price to. I have a FX6300 that I cannot get reliably beyond 5GHz; plenty of room thermally, and passes Prime95 etc at 5.08GHz and 55C; but throws odd, random errors if I take it beyond 4.95GHz for more than a few hours; however it will sit at 4.95GHz 24/7 without issue.

It will equally underclock down to 1.6GHz and still play games at a reasonable frame rate, once the various board response times are set to "Extreme" or "Ultra High".

Strangely, it plays games better than it browses the internet at 1.6GHz!!

You can get a 3GHz Quad Core Xeon for under £15 if you know where to shop.
For a Media Server/Player, or a budget PC, this cpu is a good choice, but dont buy it expecting to be able to OC it to death, the multiplier is locked on all but the "k" suffix models in the range..
Where can you score a xenon for £15.
Ebay. EBay's great for older CPUs, for instance I bought a couple of 3GHz 8 core xeons for £80 each. Admittedly the board for them was still expensive but with socket 771 or 1366 you should be able to find cheap options.
You were ripped off, I bought a 3GHz Quad core Xeon late last year, for £13 inc P&P. Current price from my supplier is range from ~£5 for a 1.8GHz, to ~£38 for a 3.3GHz.
What generation architecture? Mine are sandybridge at heart, E5-2670 V1s

The cheapest 1.8GHz ones are 771, and they go up to last gen at about £100- £120; I tend to buy 771/775 Quads as motherboards are plentiful and fairly cheap, and they tend to handle older games much better than modern iron, although the prices dont really start to rise until you reach last gen.

The whole point of a mATX mobo, is that it's small, and therefore isn't going to have all the full fat features of a normal board. It does have 4 dimm slots though. Anyone wanting to run SLI or CF will want a more beefier setup anyway.
Hmm hard sell with no sli or 7.1
... but I guess it's a gimped 370 that'll suit some people's needs.
excellent deal thanks! :D

Why is this cold?
boggles the mind

The Ryzen 1700 is £20 cheaper so unless you want the better boxed cooler that's a better deal.
Maybe because of the seller? are technically established enough, not sure of the rules but being fulffilled by amazon would be enough of a comfort for me. On price it should be hot

ROFL! How's your Ryzen? My 1700 is at 3.9 (plan 4.0 next week) with memory etc working beautifully.

All good mate, 3900 @ 1.37v using p-state (LLC3) with 3466CL14 RAM @1.4v. SOC 1.140v

All nice and stable on the C6H Beta 9945 UEFI (Agesa 1006).

I'm not touching it now until some official UEFI gets released. 4ghz for me just not worth my while, too much voltage jump and don't need the performance.

Good luck.

Most 4K PC screens are TN - and for a reason.60hz is it, not only are there no 4K screens that can run faster, you need a grunty gfx card to get anywhere near 60Hz; it hasnt been that long since 30Hz was the 4K limit, so stop moaning.Acer are a MOTR brand, (middle of the road), most of their stuff is decent, but a bit light-weight; look after it and it is reliable; even Samsung put out duff stuff though.28"@4K means you either have to sit very close, or have the eyes of a young eagle; this is a young persons screen, I wouldnt be able to read text, even with my glasses on, whereas 28"@1080p means I can read text without my glasses and still lean back in my chair when I want to watch a film.
Young persons screen - don't be daft. Just because your eyesight is not very good, don't speak for the rest of us Old Eagles. I can tell the difference between 1080p and 4K material and don't need to be sat that close.

Ya could just change the font size ...

To drive frame rates from say a, Rx 480. You would need to probably go down to around medium/high settings. Each game is different of course. A 480 is a 4k30 card, some game may only hit 20-30fps on ultra 4k, but these are poorly optimised games.
At this resolution this card is comfortably GPU bound, meaning any modern cpu will do.
Old question. Which is better. 4k with medium settings or 1080p on ultra? Heard both sides! Some say ultra graphics little difference to medium and also don't need anti aliaising on 4k. Others day 1080p ultra better than mediim low 4k! I have an rx 470 and 1080p aoc IPS monitor. Thanks!

being the person that I am, i'd probably go 1440p on high (_;)

I would rather play on minimum settings at a native resolution than play at a lower one with highest settings. If the blurry image that I've always got from different displays made me take that choice.

I used to think that, but the PS4 pro quickly changed my mind.

For that reason I'm going to end up gaming on a 1080p monitor as opposed to my 4k Sammy. The sharpness is nice, but it reveals all the faults that 1080p textures have when you're gaming at 4k. Only Horizon has managed to overcome this.

Supersampled 1080p looks better for the most part.

eBuyer so no thanks... will hold a grudge against them forever for their handling of the RMA for my old SSD.


I never go burned by ebuyer RMA dept. my issue with them is they decided to switch to using ParcelForce for deliveries and i absolutely loathe them.

problems with the RMA dept didnt arise till a few years after that when i think i heard the size of staff bonuses depended on how many RMAs they reject.


For anyone interested in this SSD.... Its SLOOOOOWWWWWWW i think its 260mb/s write and 500mb/s read.... even a Samsung 830 evo from a few years back outperforms this SSD.

Not the end of the world, but its something to take into consideration if you regularly write a load of files.


Yes as you say "not the end of the world" especially if you're laptop is sata2.
Bought a few of these, they're shockingly bad. Don't bother.

Not had a problem with eBuyer in a long time. Did once a long time ago but ordered a monitor recently with no problems. Last time I used them for RMA it was no problem but everyones experiences differ.
I RMA'd a dead SSD under warranty. They refused to replace it (the same model was available but had gone up significantly in price) and deducted 30% from the refund of the original purchase price for "wear and tear" so to replace the thing I would end up paying almost double what I originally paid. When I refused and told them to send it back to me so I could deal with the manufacturer they said that wasn't possible as they had already destroyed it.
Not the actions of a company I'll ever do business with again.
I know im late to respond to this, but had this happened to me, then i would of taken them to a small claims court.
For them to fight the case they would need to find someone to represent the company and brief them on what has happened before they go to court and that usually takes them too much time, effort and money to do so they should settle out of court...
If they had destroyed it, then they owe you a full refund or swap it for the same model or similar. It should be covered in the sale of goods act.
Scan's RMA department used to be horrendous aswell. but as soon as they know that you know your rights as a consumer, they will begin to play ball with you, albeit rather reluctantly.
dont let any retailer pull the wool over your eyes
Good advice

Not really fair to **** a company off on a half-remembered detail. It wasn't "how many RMAs they reject" but "how many RMAs they are able to avoid". If you phone to tell them your device is broken and you want to return it, and they tell you how to solve the problem so it works and you don't have to return it, that's a good thing, right?
i didnt **** any company off, my argument with them was that i refused to do business with them while they used ParcelForce to do all their deliveries and it was at least 3 or 4years before the whole rumor or news about the RMAs came out but I had stuck to my guns and not bought anything from them since and till today I still haven't though they might of switched to using another delivery company quite a few times by now.
I read the article posted about their RMA dept and judging how quickly ebuyer or their PR team jumped up to defend and explain themselves as well as denying the context that the rest of the internet seemed to have taken when they saw this picture...https://regmedia.co.uk/2013/12/23/ebuyer_big.jpg
It leads me to think that they were caught with their pants down like a deer in the headlights.
While my RMAs before the whole 'scandal' went smoothly. I know quite a few people closer to the time of the news article who didnt have such a smooth experience with them.
The only people who will defend ebuyer is their PR team or employees
first time i have seen the pic, what dummies for leaving it up, you would have thought they would have had another glance at the photo and notice the board, hilarious

I've had quite a few AMD processors from CEX, no problems.
I bought one really cheap as it had bent pins and carefully unbent them (it took a while) but it was 25% of the price.

This is just nonsensical imo.
A brand new Ryzen 1700 from Amazon is £289. I don't get why anyone would buy used for the sake of the tiny increase in price, I honestly don't :3
What about 1700x?
they perform the same. There isn't any reason at all to buy the 1700x over the 1700. Same goes for the 1800x for that matter.

I agree with your general sentiment. The 1800x/1700x are generally SLIGHTLY better binned. It's only good for another 200/100mhz on average so for the price it's... a pretty exponential (negative) trade-off. There's a point, but it's a tiny one.

They are binned for base clocks and xfr boost clocks, as the process is pretty mature, most will go to 4ghz - 4.1ghz on oc .....

Really? I don't think the crosshair vi hero is missing anything, in fact it has extra overclocking ability compared to what Intel is offering at the moment. Yeah, if you buy the budget motherboards then you're right.

Just look on Flubit. They had a PNY branded FE for £595. Mine is from Gigabyte though. Arrived in 4 days from London. I tried to post the deal here but Hot Deals cried like a bunch of SJWs and removed the listing because they hate Flubit... or whatever. But the deal was legit. I got an abolsute bargain. Running 2050mhz stable in everything.

Cheapest I can find, which is about £160 more. I suppose you can probably find them a bit cheaper when they go on offer. 1080ti prices really seem to have dropped in price over the past week or so. Don't know whether it's related to supply constraints easing or immenient launch of Vega.
Using Amazon conversion they work out to £650 (£200 more than this deal).
Amazon conversion is a tax on the financially less well informed, just like paypal conversion. Always pay in the original currency with a decent forex credit card or alternate forex product (Halifax Clarity, Revolut, Mondo) .
Personally if I was buying a graphics card right now though - for various reasons - it would be this one. Heat added! :)
Exactly.
Amazon's conversion is a convenience, you'll get a better rate with a Nationwide card, or using something like Revolut.
Probably £10 saving.
Based on your earlier statement on the Amazon conversion price being (£650) £200 more expensive, it looks like a £35 saving for me.

Also personally I wouldn't characterise Amazon conversions as a convenience. You'd be better off just paying with almost any high street credit or debit card (a 3% levy on Eur 726 still doesn't get you to £650). Feels more like a cynical cash grab to me.

(I haven't checked the Amazon conversion price - just taking your word on it).

Not trying to be argumentative. Just pointing out that if someone was up for paying about an extra £160 or whatever, 'themanwithapc' had his figures more or less correct.

Amazon conversion is a tax on the financially less well informed, just like paypal conversion. Always pay in the original currency with a decent forex credit card or alternate forex product (Halifax Clarity, Revolut, Mondo) .
Personally if I was buying a graphics card right now though - for various reasons - it would be this one. Heat added! :)
I know there's solutions to conversion but rather than assume people have solutions in place I quoted the price as is.
Cheers anyway.
I do get what you're saying about not everyone having something in place to avoid currency fees altogether, but things like Mondo don't even require a credit check - because it's a preload card - so it's not like anyone is locked out from paying the lower quoted prices.

Plus, I don't really see getting a cheap forex payment mechanism as more work than claiming cashback from MSI. Both are reasonably easy! :)

As I said though, in my opinion this is a cracking deal.

When you say original currency, do you mean the currency of the place the product is being sold? i.e. Italy would be euro.

Exactly.

Amazon's conversion is a convenience, you'll get a better rate with a Nationwide card, or using something like Revolut.

Probably £10 saving.

Better full review to follow soon
cant seem to find a proper UK stockist for this Jumper EZBook 3 Pro
also is this the best laptop for the money?


I believe it is the better laptop for the price to spec ratio as of now and many who bought it recently as of the last week or two are surprised at the build and overall quality and adequate power based on the the cpu coupled with 6gigs of RAM
You won't find a UK stockist at the moment, but it can be bought from gearbest.com then select Hong Kong for a cheaper price which is around £190 now and the price will keep changing and will only get higher. Agreed it's a risk buying from abroad just remember to use PayPal and add the insurance whilst checking out..

There's a reason these were returned lol

I agree.

Sometimes, it is just unwanted. A lot times there is a reason.

since the AMD CPU is not completely incompetent, increase RAM to 8GB, add a SSD, the laptop will be good enough for general usage, web browsing and office work.

But those upgrades adds to the price too especially SSD nowadays are quite expensive compare to one year ago.

After those two upgrades, you are looking at about a cost of £250.

Let's say you want to upgrade ssd. Is this simple with this model?
i cannot imagine it would be.
most newer hp laptops have around 10 screws on the bottom casing and then you simply remove the bottom and the hard drive is held in by another 4 screws.
but then you will need to either clone the original hard drive to your ssd or create a bootable uefi usb to reinstall windows.
but putting that all aside i have to ask myself..... WHY!
Why would you want to purchase such a useless spec laptop and upgrade it with a ssd ?
makes no sence
SSDs do make a huge difference to these. If you can source a 120gb for £30 or a 240gb for £55, the laptop should be a reasonable performer. You can also buy a £3 caddy to put the old mechanical hard drive in for back up storage. Seeing as laptops that come with SSD generally cost over £500, this can make sense.
It depends what you want from a laptop I suppose, granted browsing maybe be sluggish on one of these, but an SSD would at least make the rest of the experience half decent, if you are just going to do some spreadhseet / wordprocessing / accountancy stuff for instance. If you work from home using a remote connection then also the speed makes no difference really (I know people that just log into their work pcs and browse from there as it's faster - be careful what sites you go to though!)

It was the case.

Thing has moved on a little bit.

laptop with full HD + 256GB SSD can be found at around £350, not £500.
The full HD will not be the best one as you can imagin.

And nowadays, SSD price has shooting up the roof due to NAND shortage.

So I bought this on the original bundle deal. Overall seems a decent board, however, for those interested, I'm experiencing the following problems - despite running the latest BIOS.
1) Can't overclock in the BIOS - changing the vCore locks the multiplier to 15x. Stupid, I know. According to the MSI forums this problem occurs on other manufacturer boards and no one knows why (hooray)
2) Can't run my Corsair Dominator RAM at 3ghz. It's not on the QVL I know, but I wanted it because it's shiny. Best I can manage is 2666mhz for now.
Other than that, no problems. PC runs really well. Hoping the incoming AGESA update will help!

hmm have not tried overclocking so cannot comment on that but RAM with Ryzen is known to be finicky....are your Corsairs Samsung B die? As this one has best compatibility with Ryzen platform. I am using G.Skills 3866, also not on QVL but they work fine on 2nd XMP profile, 2933...have not tried to get them on 1st one, waiting for AGESA 1006 :)

Excellent CPU, it should be £399 though (_;)
If you do productivity tasks predominantly and aren't confident overclocking then this CPU is a steal. 6900K performance at less than 50% the price.

If all you do is game, or want to overclock, don't bother and instead get a 1600 or 1700 for much much less.
Smashing deal.
Sorry but there is really absolutely no reason to go with 1800X. 1700 can be overclocked to match 1800X very closely.

8 cores, but what applications or games use eight cores?
The target audience is people using multiple apps at once, if you don't then this isn't for you , may as well get a ryzen 5 or i5

But that comment is wrong still!

It's not about "using multiple apps" as the foreground app/active app is the only one consuming CPU.

"Using multiple apps at once" is pretty much exactly what I was discussing. Most 'multiple app' usage does not take advantage of the multi cores.


You're an idiot. So my VMware running in the background whilst I game uses no CPU at all. Neither does Plex server streaming a film to another device... Moron

Not when you have a 144hz monitor, no. If you have a good machine and monitor there is literally no reason to have to experience peasant gaming.


I would dislike this comment if I could...

30fps for vast majority of games is enough for a really decent experience. 60fps is where you want to be, anything more is really nice, but not that noticeable, but I would take a better quality game at 30fps over that anyday.

Ignore the spec snobs and enjoy the games...
Ryzen and high core counts are such a bad idea that Intel are hurriedly rushing out X299 to counter AMD's forward thinking.

Maybe they've all got it wrong and we should just roll back to dual core machines after all :)

If a game supports multithreading the load is spread between all cores.
All Triple A games support all cores, like Doom, Prey ect. They will fully utilize all cores.
Exactly right. Anything capable of DX12/Vulkan in addition.
But titles like Watchdogs 2, Battlefield 1 etc all thread very well.
It's like Groundhog day in these threads...
Not that this comment is any way relevant. He is obviously meaning practical application of 8 cores of which there is none since these CPU's cannot bench higher than Quad Cores 6 and 7th Gen intels.
To answer his question - There isn't any point in using 8 cores when you can achieve the same results (often better) with 4.
In the future hyper-threading will be a big thing, but as of right now it's essentially redundant.
Thats only if you talking about gaming point of view. Use adobe premier or software which boost on all cores for rendering and you got big difference against 8 vs 4 core. Also gaming problem of ryzen processors are only in 1080p, really you invest in high end processor and get 1080p monitors?
I've never understood that 1080P belief. All of the reviews of Ryzen 7 show it trailing far behind the 7700K in 1440P, too. The only source for the "1080P" myth that I've been able to find is a comment by Lisa Su: "Ryzen is doing really well in 1440p and 4K gaming when the applications are more graphics bound."
That's Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, by the way. :D Now, what kind of a person would ignore the benchmarks and simply take her word as gospel...?
Meanwhile, over in the real world (where the Party isn't devoting their workday to changing the past to fit the facts they want), we get:http://www.techspot.com/articles-info/1348/bench/1440_Hitman.pnghttp://www.techspot.com/articles-info/1348/bench/1440_Civ.pnghttp://www.techspot.com/articles-info/1348/bench/1440_Warhammer.pnghttp://www.techspot.com/articles-info/1348/bench/1440_GTAV.png
And while you may be more GPU-limited today, I'd wager that the majority of people upgrade their graphics card more often than their CPU/motherboard/RAM, so while you may not be feeling Ryzen's squeeze today, you probably will with the GTX 1270.
So, Ryzen: more future-proof for games? Sure, I'd agree that the 1800X will probably be matching the 7700K in the vast majority of new titles in 2022. But not this year, and not next year, and that's a sentiment shared by the professionals.
So if you disagree, it might be useful to share with us why you know better than they do. :{
(Of course, I'm only talking about gaming. Ryzen's excellent value for non-gamers.)
Really good comment! It's nice to see a comment that makes sense :)
Nexusfifth
I have both i7-6700k and ryzen 1700 in the house and I tested both myself (doom and andromeda) fhd 144hz monitor, 1080ti
- When having music in the background in real life I7 loses by about 10%, while spikes become significantly more frequent for i7
- 6700k does beat 1700 with just the game running but what most reviews seems to ignore are spikes, every so often the 6700k drops about 20% under "normal" fps you see in reviews. I have never seen this happening with 1700. So again if you like stable high frame rates 1700 is better...
- both cpus are overclocked (1700 to 3.8GHz and 6700 to 4.6GHz)
- other than this, outside of certain programming stuff where 1700 is miles ahead I can never feel the difference.
Generally I would say I am more of an Intel fanboy, as since I started building pcs I have never used an amd cpu until now.
I had a chance to get a new 7700k for 215£ or 1700 for 225£ (6700k rig is going to my brother) and I went with the latter even though I believed that for my use case (about 90% gaming and 10% programming) 7700k was a better cpu according to reviews simply because I don't like being ripped of by a greedy company because it doesn't have any competition (read intel) and after getting 1700 and doing tests myself I no longer believe that 7700k was better for my use case.
To summarise 1700 vs 6700k:
- I believe 1700 is more future proof than 6700k, with a lot more headroom for improvement being new architecture
- I really can't tell the difference between 110 and 120 fps, which is where most of the difference exists with just the game
- I prefer 110fps 100% of the time over 120% 99% of the time and weird and obvious frame drop below 90fps 1% of the time
- Better performance with background programmes running
- no useless integrated gpu taking over half the cpu
- you support an underdog who if they succeed will probably keep prices in check for both Intel and amd cpus in the future, also a company which doesn't have a history of ripping of their customers...
All this comes from someone who actually owns both cpus in question (I hope most people would agree that 7700k is barely better than 6700k) and is giving you first person experience with stuff I actually bought with my own money. (also I used the same cooler, case, psu and graphics card in both rigs.
You take from this what you want...
Thanks for sharing your real life experience, very interesting! :)

Why are some Amazon Warehouse (used) cards discounted and others aren't? Any easy way of telling?

EDIT - I've answered my own question, go through the Warehouse Spring Clearance page and filter through that. I thought all Warehouse stuff was discounted but I was wrong.

This or 750ti?
Depends on the price of the 750ti you're looking at and your requirements. Toms hardware has this two tiers higher in terms of performance though.


I already have a 750ti aha just wondered if if was worth getting this over it, guess not!


I've upgraded from a 750ti mainly as I intend to sell the 750ti and recoup most of the outlay. This definitely has more grunt and the main reason I upgraded was that my 750ti would only work at 4k at 30mz and this will do 60mz at 4k. Its only for desktop use and strategy games. Also my 750 ti wouldn't display the bios on my 4k monitor at all. No problem with this.

Is this the one that requires 6 pin power connector? I know that none of 2 GB versions do, but i've read that some of the 4 GB requires it and I can't quite find it. However, gtx 1050 is available for 80 pounds which gives a better performance albeit only having 2 GB of vram.


yes this does require 6 pin power connector.

Hi there may I ask in relation to your open box deal is that from AMAZON WAREHOUSE ? if so, how did you get this card for such a fantastic price? is there anyway of checking deals as soon as they arrive into the Amazon Warehouse or is it simply a case of dropping lucky ? I would be over-the-moon if I could get a similar deal, however I have only had 1 experience with Amazon Warehouse in the past which was not so great, I spent £600 on a High-End Home Cinema System when it arrived, I opened the box to discover the MAIN BLU-RAY PLAYER that made it all work was missing LOL.... it was just a box with 5 speakers & 1 subwoofer inside, all the speakers cables were missing & even the remote to LOL... Naturally I sent it back for a FULL REFUND... Amazon say they check items when they return, but personally I do not think they check returned stock at all, just throw them into the warehouse and apply a discount, I heard a story about a guy who purchased a clock and when he opened the box the hands were missing LOL, anyhow hopefully my next experience with Amazon Warehouse will be much better if like yourself I can snap up a graphics card for a similar price :) then again... I may end up with a graphics card without a fan or maybe I get just the fan with the graphics card missing LOL :D

I was close to buying this in the morning but check the Amazon open box deal which just went live. I got an RX 480 8GB Nitro+ for £159 :D
Heres a similiar card I bought which is £171 at checkout : https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Graphics-Cards/Sapphire-Polaris-FreeSync-PCI-Express-Graphics/B01IQS6NI0/ref=sr_1_2?m=A2OAJ7377F756P&s=warehouse-deals&ie=UTF8&qid=1493802426&sr=1-2

Hi - I saw the Amazon warehouse deal (20% off) posted on HUKD so I checked it out because I'm currently building my first PC. I've been very patient with the build because I wanted to get the best value - it's taken me 2 months to get to this point and I'm almost finished (1 part left).

Unfortunately I've had issues with that v card I mentioned above. Everything was fine initially, booted up fine and the card was in perfect condition - I was over the moon. However, I during my tests (you need to check all components - even new!), I discovered artefacts and screen tearing, even when I under clocked.
I had to return it and it pretty much wasted a week of my time. It was clear Amazon didn't check it beyond boot up and they brushed off my complaint. I got my refund nonetheless.

I guess its the risk you take with the deals but I agree, you expect a lot more from Amazon. I've recently bought a MSI GTX 970 from eBay for £135 (Almost new) - I'm hoping this won't let me down because this is the last component I need.
Hi there may I ask in relation to your open box deal is that from AMAZON WAREHOUSE ? if so, how did you get this card for such a fantastic price? is there anyway of checking deals as soon as they arrive into the Amazon Warehouse or is it simply a case of dropping lucky ? I would be over-the-moon if I could get a similar deal, however I have only had 1 experience with Amazon Warehouse in the past which was not so great, I spent £600 on a High-End Home Cinema System when it arrived, I opened the box to discover the MAIN BLU-RAY PLAYER that made it all work was missing LOL.... it was just a box with 5 speakers & 1 subwoofer inside, all the speakers cables were missing & even the remote to LOL... Naturally I sent it back for a FULL REFUND... Amazon say they check items when they return, but personally I do not think they check returned stock at all, just throw them into the warehouse and apply a discount, I heard a story about a guy who purchased a clock and when he opened the box the hands were missing LOL, anyhow hopefully my next experience with Amazon Warehouse will be much better if like yourself I can snap up a graphics card for a similar price :) then again... I may end up with a graphics card without a fan or maybe I get just the fan with the graphics card missing LOL :D

Cold for me, I wouldn't recommend a 4GB card at this money.
Better with a 470 if you just want budget 1080p, or otherwise waiting for a better 8GB 480/580 deal.
4GB vs 8GB at 1080p wont make a noticable difference, whereas a 470 to a 480 will

Well, not strictly true as out of the box the 8GB has the faster memory speed, which will equate to 2-3FPS difference across most titles are max settings, plus gives much greater headroom over the life of the card.

There have been a number of 480 8GB card deals for £180~ and 4GB cards for £160~ at times where the exchange rates were actually worse.

Might be the cheapest out there today (I haven't scouted), but it doesn't make it a good deal.


a 470 to a 480 will equate to a larger performance difference of 4GB vs 8GB that's my point, so a 4GB 480 is still better than a 470 which isnt much cheaper currently. and who would notice 2-3 FPS difference? it'll be within a margin of error anyway
Uncommon.Sense
Most people obvioulsy don't bother reading the opening post with the deal.
There is a card for £162 as well, and there is no way to predict if there will ever be cheaper cards again. Right now if you want to buy an RX480, these are the best deals you are going to get.
Or buy the the RX570 from eBuyer.

I read the OP, but commented specifically on the headline offering, given that's the one you chose to highlight.

The XFX is a much better price for the 4GB card but it's a poor card in the 480 range and runs very hot indeed, even by 480 standards.

Screen has terrible viewing angles. Worst I've ever had but replacements are under 50 quid. Comes with program to make it better but presets appear to tinge screen yellow or red or white.
Could just be mine though but I have heard about a lot if complaints on recent dell models. Are they tn's?
Just sit with your laptop straight on and not at an angle?

Wasn't notified of your comment so sorry for delay.

Yep, basically. But for image editing or watching a movie in bed with two people(at different heights), can be a bit annoying. Or if I'm moving around in my room for whatever reason. By no means a deal breaker given the price of a replacement screen.
Just went to order it and the auto applied discount has disappeared. It's now 699 with the discount.

This is pretty much the perfect spec laptop for me but what people have said about the screen puts me off, is it really that bad?
I have one arriving Tuesday. Will report back as soon as I can with info.
Thanks that would be great.
Been setting it up this morning and the screen is fine. Completely usable. It could be better from some angles but you can just tilt the screen and bring it back into range.

These Prices are really inflated for a 1060 competitor, A couple of the cards are approaching GTX 1070 Pricing! Better off buying a RX 470 or 480 and overclocking it or a 6GB 1060 (avoid the 3GB model as your hit the VRAM limit on certain titles)

The prices on pretty much all pc gear is cranked up for 2017 the cost to buy these components is ridiculous, this has to be the worst time to buy pc parts/systems and there talking about price increases lol, on the bright side the 2nd hard market is thriving and sure to do btr should prices keep going up, can't help feeling there cutting there own throat for short term gain in profit margins.
It's pretty much gonna be which every company puts on a great deal for a component gets all the sales just like that 1070 for £300, now that deal sold a lot of cards and made some money, when those offers come up they will be grabbed people need to be patient more so now than ever before, and we need people posting deals on this site.

As for me I'm not buying anything until these prices come back down to earth, no ryzen, intel, anything I'm sitting with 3 builds lol my old phenom II 555 (unlocked to 4 cores) with ddr 3 1680mhz (7-8-7-20) is still going strong, my z97 asus pro is harldy use and now runs a large 80+ tb nas and has been very under utilized simply because I bought a much smaller system in my z170i asus gaming pro, sm951 nvme, evga gtx 1060 sc (6gb).

I may not have went the kabby lake route but if these prices had been btr I would already be building a new ryzen system but the parts I want are just to overpriced and I wont settle for something else those b350 motherboards are also overpriced for what they are, so much for ryzen being cheaper turns out they just match intel tier for tier B vs H & X vs Z as such im under no doubt both intel and amd are loosing sales.

I just don't see who this card is aimed at and why would you buy it over a 470/480 1060 if you were looking to upgrade from an older card
its current draw is almost twice that of a 1060..for what?
Increased clock speeds, unlocked compute units.

Still a good deal, but I can't see any reason to buy this if you already own an RX 470/480.
This "deal" is hilarious considering gtx 1070 deal was 299 with 2 games
didn't they increase the memory clocks?
Becoz they cant , they're already stretching the power limits/heat limits and it allows the 6xx cards to have faster gddr5x or HBM2(less likely).
BUT hey the fans are more in sync than they have ever been before

Seeing how the Pentium G4560 can match and even beat this cpu on more common workloads such as gaming at a lower power power consumption. I'd say the £50 - £65 price bracket where this one lies at this point as part of a cheap entry level rendering/streaming rig.

Well thats just a lie

Heat for this proceasor. 965 and 995 black editions cant match this one i have used both..Its still one of the top processors AMD evwr peoduced
Well, that's obviously easy for you to say.
I wouldn't pay this much for an FX8350, if you do want this CPU I'd suggest looking at Ebay for listings under £100.

Even if you are already on the AM3+ platform it's not worth buying a brand new AM3 processor, used however, sure.
The 8350 is a good CPU....I have two running in machines and they've been quick and reliable. Unfortunately they're certainly outdated when compared to some more modern processors in some regards, but they're still good enough that it's not financially worth replacing them. I'd give this deal some warmth rather than heat, but as that's not possible, heat it is!

Only about 5-10% quicker than a 480.
According to which benchmark may I ask? From what I heard, it has a huge improvement. Is the 5-10% is 1 single game that's unoptimised?
Some places aren't even getting 5-10% on average:
Anandtech
Relative to the RX 480 and RX 470 then, the performance gains we’re seeing with the RX 580 and RX 570 are nothing spectacular, but then AMD has kept their promises similarly small. In practice this means that the RX 580 is only averaging 3% faster than the RX 480 it replaces in AMD’s product stack
Note that the benchmark pic in the deal is comparing a factory-overclocked 580 with a stock 480. ;)
https://tpucdn.com/reviews/Sapphire/RX_580_Nitro_Plus/images/witcher3_1920_1080.pnghttps://tpucdn.com/reviews/MSI/RX_480_Gaming_X/images/witcher3_1920_1080.png
The difference between AIB 480/580 is 5fps in this instance, not hugely significant but welcome.
Huh, you make a good point. The 6GB 1060 gives an extra 3.5FPS over the 580, and is £5 cheaper. Yes, definitely - the 6GB 1060 does make a lot more sense than the 580 at these prices.
Try again, it appears you can't read a simple bar chart.
Oops, you're quite right - I was mistakenly comparing the 1060 with the aftermarket 480, not the 580! :| That's what I get for commenting without coffee!
They should have called it a 485 in fairness, small uplift for 20% TDP increase is fairly pointless, but if you're buying a new system/card I appreciate the need to differentiate the refined product from the original.
Totally Agree, the fact AMD have crammed full fat Polaris in a Xbox APU makes the 580 incremental performance upgrade DOA!

I bought one of these from a another deal. It would regularly lock up under load. Asus did not reply. The vendor told me there was a batch fault with many of these cards and gave me a refund.
I had the same issue - went into Wattman and increased power by 25%. Worked flawlessly with the latest drivers since. Worried me at first but very happy now!
Interesting. How did you know to do this?

From a post on another RX480 deal by a fellow HUKDer. Reading up there's a lot on the web about the card not getting sufficient power in order to comply with the manufacturer's rated power draw - this seems to have fixed it. Had a few hours on GTAV, Shadow of Mordor etc with no probs, temps stay below 80c.

i was thinking of getting the 1600 but truly only for surfing/gaming a quad core does the job...i wish pc's were optimized like consoles to push games at using full 6/8 cores but i guess it is what it is as the consoles were built for that reason only for perfect gaming experience

I wouldn't say consoles were a perfect gaming experience (as an XB1 owner), if you want to run 720p-900p in 30fps they're pretty perfect though :)

I wouldn't use Alza personally, for the sake of £10. CCL with 1% Quidco is not much more expensive.

for those who have said ryzen was rushed out - it wasn't. live versions of the b350 class mobos where out in 2016. What ever was the cause of the delay it allowed amd to do another respin of ryzen and bump it up to 3.6ghz.

Gaming on the ryzen should get better and better as new games come onto the market

Reviewers are being a bit too harsh on Ryzen with the gaming benchmarks. It's like a mere 2-6 FPS difference between Ryzen and Inte;s 7600K in performance on games. Ryzen otherwise beats intels offerings in other non gaming benchmarks though like video editing and number crunching stuff.
If something is £80 cheaper and gives more FPS i'm sure going for that.

you'll be wanting a Ryzen R5 of some description then. I recommend a 1500X. i5 prices, 6 cores.
also - anyone quoting warhammer total war scores, should check if the benchmark includes the "bretonnia" patch as that was basically the "ryzen fix" patch. Not a night and day difference but it closed the gap a good bit.

quite interested by this chip! about 10 years ago i invested in one of the (then new) dual core x2 4400 chips, and that desktop machine soldiered on for a fair few years before i moved to a newer laptop. Currently still running that laptop with a i7-2670QM processor. It is now however 5 years old, and the onboard 540m graphics are starting to show their age. How would i find the jump to an AMD Ryzen system such as this?
Clearly (hopefully!) it will be an improvement, but will it be the same kind of jump i experienced on my previous upgrade path?
Jumping from a laptop to a new desktop should make a fair difference - especially if your laptop doesn't have an SSD or enough memory. But your Sandy Bridge quad core i7 (even these days most i7 mobile chips are dual core) isn't that slow.
I guess it really depends on what you do. A octo-core processor like doesn't perform well with everything as not many program scale to so many cores since not everything can be broken down into parallel processes.
Really a question like this can only be answered by you reading reviews and trying to find benchmarks of program you use. Here are some sites which have benchmark databases but it's not always possible to compare everything:http://www.anandtech.com/bench/CPU (they won't let you compared an SB i7 to Ryzen as the Sandy Bridge results were run on with their old test suite under Win7 and the Ryzen ones with a new Win10 suite.)http://www.hardware.fr/articles/959-17/indices-performance.html
That scores the i7 2600K (which runs at base frequency of 3.4GHz vs your 2.2Ghz) 131.9 vs 254.0 for this Ryzen.https://www.ht4u.net/reviews/2017/amd_ryzen_7_reloaded_r7_1700_bis_1800x_erneut_im_test/index29.php
Where the i70-2600K scores 72% of the Ryzen 7 1700's speed in apps, but 90% in games.https://www.computerbase.de/thema/prozessor/rangliste/
There you can click on 'Bearbeiten' to check/unckeck individual tests.
Of course you should try and figure out what your mobile i7-2760QM scores compared to the desktop i7-2600K as well. Passmark gives the 2600K 8486 versus 6635 for the 2760QM so you could assume that in the above comparisons you CPU should have scored roughly 20% less.

Great response dude, much appreciated. Follow-on question : Are AMD architectures built to work more efficiently with AMD/ATI Cards vs Nvidia? Basically if i bought this Ryzen would you be better going for an AMD/ATI Card or stick with Nvidia. For the last 15 or so years ive pretty much been a Nvidia user so would probably want to stay that way unless there was significant performance issues

@Nate1492 - This is a video that explains to me why Ryzen will benefit many of us.
If you purely game with nothing else in the background then there is no comparison that Intel will win hands down, with somewhere between 10-20% higher average framerate (although there are plenty of people claiming the Ryzen games smoother because of it's increased 0.1% and 1% lows).
However, for people like me (who game with background apps such as Spotify, Twitch, OBS, multiple Chrome tabs), the Ryzen is the sensible choice because of it's superior multitasking. The i7 will always have higher performance with pure gaming, but the frames do start to drop (I'm not making any massive claims of by how much here) once you add other applications into the mix.
If you think Intel is better, great! Go buy Intel! I won't try to dissuade you. But also, if people want to buy Ryzen's for their own reasons (I'm moving from a [email protected] to a Ryzen 1700 because I stream while gaming) then leave them to it.
Remember also, competition is good for all of us, so I welcome AMD coming back into the mix as I'm certain Intel have purposely stifled their own progress in the last 5 years (but that's another story).
Right, this is a misconception actually, on a number of levels.
1) Background apps, such as spotify, twitch, and multiple chrome tabs are very light on CPU use. Multitasking doesn't lend itself to multiple cores, turns out when you are not actively using a something, it is very low CPU use. So, you are speculating, and I'm saying you are mostly wrong.
Now, where you have some reasonable accuracy is streaming/rendering video. Although, I would suggest you took a shotgun approach and hit the one thing the Ryzen would be good at. Streaming video (OBS) while playing, might bring Ryzen closer to the I7 7700k. But it might not either, it depends.
2) Ryzen hasn't shown to be better at .1% or 1% frames, so suggesting it's 'smoother' without any evidence to back it up is just 'this purchase was definitely worth it, I can 'feel' how much nicer it is' jumping in front of 'yeah, it's no different, I wasted 500 for the same experience'.
Competition is great, *good, source backed, information is even better*.
Making claims that are '*maybe true, who knows, you look it up*' is a bad way to help people.

Or, maybe he's talking some truth as discovered:

LOL ... no chance at this price. rather have Ryzen cpu. currently have AM3+ Mobo & 8120 cpu.. wouldnt touch this with a barge pole.. Ryzen is more competitive :) this is worth £70 excluding games. then they might shift these AM3 CPUS + MOBO for £130 ;)
Looks like the only thing it can't heat up is this deal ;)
Can only realistically see this being a good deal for someone already on the AM3+ platform, and even then I wouldn't really recommend it..
maybe, only maybe, worth it at ~£100 especially if you want the games too but not at this price, too many BIG disadvantages and most average PCs would need better PSUs and cooling to deal with these chips....

Aria have this card on their daily deals at £144 + postage.
Only a handful in stock so didn't post as a separate deal.
They're banned (suspended?) on here anyway. No idea why, maybe someone else knows?
I didn't realise that. I've used them a few times without any issues.
Perhaps the daily deals with there very limited numbers were a contributing factor?
There's nothing wrong with them as far as I'm concerned, either.

I didn't even know they were banned/suspended until I tried to post a comment with a link to their site sometime in the past few days and it got edited by a mod. If I had to guess, I'd say they're probably banned for something petty like self promotion, as opposed to anything serious like not being legit.

Literally no point ever buying this CPU. I can't even think of one reason why.
Only reason would be if you've already got an AM3 setup (with sufficient PSU and cooler) and this gives you the extra performance you need now which may make £149 better immediate value than switching to Intel or even Ryzen when you will also have to factor in new mboard + new DDR4.
There was really only one use for these and that is virtualisation (well and possible some media encoding as long as it's not AVX2 or FPU heavy). That is sometimes having 8 integer cores is useful. But for those of these usages, the 8320E is a far better value than this pre-overclocked processor. However, AM3+ is a totally dead socket.
Of course, 8+ core Ryzen or Intel HEDT perform a lot better that these tasks but even Ryzen 7 costs at least twice of this.

poison3k
You can get a g4xx for half the price which outperforms this cpu, for the same money you can pick up an i5 which is twice as good.
At single-threaded stuff? Sure, but for the two niche usage cases above (virtualisation and media encoding) 2C/4T is often not enough.
What's the best AMD cpu for purely desktop speed. As in internet browsing and office programs. No real graphics. For under £100?
This is in the wrong section .. should be in Household - heating - this is cheap for a heater of this power.. could use it in a greenhouse AND do some folding on the side...

Nonsense, although bad value but it works perfectly fine.
great in a htpc or just a SFF build that just needs multiple monitors (like a home office)
Had one in my media PC for years. Works perfect with Windows 10 and Plays my 1:1 Blu-Ray rips fine with HD audio.

I need a card like this for my old HP microserver. I just want the cheapest price to provide HDMI out. Is this the cheapest option for a new card? What should I search for at CEX? I've just tried but without success. Thanks.
Well your search should be something like this: PCIe, in stock online (so the listed prices + £2.50 postage):
https://uk.webuy.com/search/index.php?sortOn=sellprice_asc&stext=*§ion=&catid=892&rad_which_stock=2
Then it's just a matter of finding something.
5450 and 6450 are £12.
Maybe the £15 GT630 (GPU unknown: can be GK107, GF108, or GK208 - you probably don't want the Ferni as its (unrealistic) TPU is 65W).
Or the £15 GT720 (GK208, 19W TPU).
The £18 Radeon 7570 (either Turks Pro if OEM or Cape Verde if retail).
Thing is you'll have to investigate those for their media features and driver compatibility.

AMD getting desparate to shift these duds.
duds? These processors are being touted as disruptive by just about all tech reviewers.
The only workload they don't stomp Intel at every price point is games, and it appears fixes are in the works.
Disruptive would mean that intel prices drop to compete, but have they? if intel havent dropped their prices, these are as disruptive as a fart in a hurricane.

These will be disruptive to the workstation 6900K and probably even general business computers. Ignoring gamers, I expect many businesses to go for the much cheaper Ryzen's than higher priced i7's.

Of course Intel won't and can't reduce prices until their sales are affected but they have already stated in their recent earnings call that cpu prices will be lower soon.

Intel expects CPU prices to fall now that AMD's Ryzen is here

Nice find, looks like the Asrock board is a 3x2 phase design not a true 6 phase board, the 4 phase MSI B350M Mortar board for a few quid more @£89 might be the better bet, waiting for user reviews...

Quote:
Number of phases
The fact that more phases do not mean the same efficiency as the entire converter has been shown in the previous paragraph. Why do not we see only four phases on sinfully expensive circuit boards?
Because a higher number of phases have different advantages and are superior to the utility that at 1.45V and 100A at the output the FETs in the converter convert 10W instead of 11W into heat.

It is always necessary to differentiate between what is often called real phases (directly controlled by the PWM signal of the controller) and so-called doubled phases (realized by Doppler).
In this case, however, phases can also be doubled in two different ways: either Doppler is actually used, which provides two interleaved PWM signals for two phases, or the same PWM signal is simply used for two phases.
Several real phases have three positive effects: the controller can react more quickly to impulsive load changes with increasing number of PWM signals at the outputs. Furthermore, through several real phases, the maximum current at the output of the converter can be increased quite effectively and by interleaving the Residual ripple.

Doppler doubled phases bring only two of these advantages: to be able to provide more current at the output and to reduce the residual ripple.
If a manufacturer doubles by connecting two phases to a PWM signal, he can only achieve one of the advantages: the higher power ratings for the CPU.
A fundamental way to evaluate boards is not to bring this information with you - it is always case-specific to judge the sensibility and absurdity of the phase number.
ShroomHeadToad
That Asrock board looked like a 6+3 phase board.
You were correct.

Because someone posted a link to compiled table of all AM4 boards, and it's 6 for the CPU and 3 for the SOC (onboard chipset only, can't see that ever needing that much power):
https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hardwareluxx.de%2Fcommunity%2Ff12%2Fam4-mainboard-vrm-liste-1155146.html&edit-text=&act=url

Well, Ryzen 5 hasn't launched yet so while this makes I7 6800/6850/6900 and mostly the i7-7700K look bad the £300+ CPU market is small.
It's possible that Intel will not lower prices but surely then they will suffer a marketshare loss.
What I always find very strange is the amount of people willing to irrationally defend Intel and their monopolistic and anti-consumer practices rather than welcoming a return to competition. It's almost like they are members of some fanclub or are shareholders. On the Anadtech forums there even is/was (a bit silent ATM) a poster who kept insisting that competition was bad for innovation as it splits the available R&B budget. Unbelievable!

The R&B budget ? never been a fan myself, more a rock kind of guy :P

With recent driver improvements they're on par with a 1060 6Gb, uses more power mind.
