It's gone now but wasn't the Ryzen 5 1400 hovering around this price for a bit? Think this is the new standard price for the 1300x. Would personally wait 2 weeks to pick up this or one of the Ryzen 5s for cheap.

Not a deal in-fact the most expensive per thread basis, these are all still a tad overpriced as is the 1400/ 1500x/ 1800x and when comparing them to the g4560 which is overpriced due to popularity and the 8100 which you can't get, the 1200 is the btr option.

1800x = £23.56 per thread = £377
1700 = £15.75 per thread = £252
1700x = £17.18 per thread = £275
1600 = £14.83 per thread = £178
1600x = £18.08 per thread = £217
1500x = £19.97 per thread = £159
1400 = £17.25 per thread = £138
1300x = £27.50 per thread = £110
1200 = £23.25 per thread = £93

It's pretty clear some are overpriced compared to there brothers, 1st place - 1600 followed by the 1700 followed by the 1700x, it's hard to buy ryzen 3 on price per thread basis and since they all clock within 100 MHz or so.
the 1500x is the biggest disappointment being 8 threads that could have been the best seller at £15 per thread over 8 threads = £120 it would have beaten all i5 sales took a bunch of £100 i3 sales away from intel, really a strange choice by amd here. the 1200 really should be down price wise with the g4560 at £18 per thread that's £72 for a 1200 then it competes a lot better, the 1300x at £20 per thread is a tad overpriced per thread but £80 for the chip is a btr bargin, amd have some options here, but they btr get on it soon.

You certainly can get the 8100 i3.

It's actually in stock everywhere...

So you are right, the best CPU at this price is the 8100, and the best CPU is widely available.



There is little reason to get a 1300x when you can pick up the 8100 for the same/cheaper.

Ye I'd agree I think the 4 core at 3.6 matches a 1300x at 3.9 ipc variance and you get igpu for office or shopping/htpc use the power consumption is about same with intel btr at idle, the cooler is not as good as the ryzen but not a big factor the only real issue of note is board price the intel is a bit more yet with no ddr4 overclocking/compatibility issues.

as stated this 1300x should be at most £80 with the 1200 at £65-£70, I would be more tempted here by the 8100 just with the non platform issues an extra £20 for a board maybe worth it for btr memory and hassle free platform, clocks & ipc even out at 3.6 vs 3.9, power- same, core count- same.

Though at this level. I’d rather get a Ryzen knowing I could up the chip next year.
The argument up the chain is you wouldn’t. However at this price, it’s motel likely someone will buy say a used 1700 next year or it’s replacement. The z370 discussion by Intel is just plain daft.

Useful info but a real thread Vs a SMT thread do not give the same performance.

So for my examples we will say SMT adds 25%.

Ryzen 1400 = 4+4@0.25=£27.60
Ryzen 1600 = 6+6@0.25=£23.73
Ryzen 1700 = 8+8@0.25=£25.20

So when you add in the Ryzen 1200 at £23.25 they are all pretty similar for the base CPU per category.

when you render you don't get only %25 from a smt lol strange thoughts but ok.

I was looking at the Ryzen 1300, and 1600. I was hoping their prizes would move nearer to Black Friday. Depending on how far the prices move it was one or the other. I guess I didn't research enough....

So, can I ask. You guys are saying the 8100 is better than the 1300. I will definitely keep an eye on that and knock the 1300 on the head.

Is there an equivalent chip to the ryzen 1600, for a similar price from intel.

Ive thought the 1600 was the best value, I've read countless things on here. I've Looked on google and pc parts picker to try get an idea of things.
Need something to last a couple of years, be reliable and be able to edit.

thanks

Who buys chips once per year?

A used 1700 next year? Why not a used 8400 next year? Or a used 8700k next year. That's a daft argument.

Who buys a CPU for one year and wants to replace it? Most CPUs are bought with the intention of keeping them for a long time.

Absolutely.

The I5 8400 is, perhaps, the best value chip. It's a 6 core chip (like the 1600) and is currently hovering around 170-180.

It is an absolutely killer value chip.

Not really. The cheapest non dumpster fire Z370 is 100 quid. The cheapest non dumpster fire B350 is 70. We are talking small potatoes. Not to mention if you are really talking about 'considerations' if you want to get the OC out of the Ryzen, you need to upgrade the cooler. No need for a non stock cooler for Intel 8100 or 8400.

It completely depends on what you are doing though.

In rendering, sure. In games, productivity, and most tasks? SMT and HyperThreading are not good.

hardwarecanucks.com/for…tml

This is one of the most positive SMT reviews I've found on the net, on all of the gaming bneches, turning SMT off resulted in a boost.

Suggesting SMT 'adds 25%' is a crazy high estimate, for anything that isn't rendering.

Here's one of the strongly negative reviews for SMT.


gamersnexus.net/gui…rks


Anyway, virtually no one would actually turn SMT or HT off, it's just theory. But really, it isn't '25%' boost.

That was my whole point. He was pricing per thread. My point was a core is not equal to a thread.
25% was an example, middle of the road. Yes rending will give you 50% and some games almost nothing, mainly due to poor optimization (especially back in March).

My main point was one of pricing not performance.

You can get Asrock B350 boards for about £60 and they overclock to 3.8GHz NP. A £40 saving is massive IMO when doing a budget build - I could mean you could bump up the CPU to the next model.

Sorry, but I disagree.

You are looking at the micro ATX boards that are absolute rubbish.


overclock.net/t/1…hdv


The only result I see is someone struggling to maintain *ANY* OC on this board.


Dude can't even get the CPU to clock down during idle, which means the CPU runs hot even at idle.


Recommending the absolute cheapest board, that is garbage, is a good way to completely fail your OC attempts.

Game performance isn't about poor optimization, they simply can't leverage SMT for their processing requirements.

Virtually no game benefits from SMT or HT. This isn't something that AMD 'fixed' since march.

The point you missed is that the best price to perf chip is the 1600 at £180 that equates
to £15 per thread therefore all chips should be calculated as such to show value if you wish to spend on the
1300x = £27.50 per thread = £110 = current price
1200 = £23.25 per thread = £93 = current price
then that's your choice but clearly the 1600 is the best option the 1700 is more money but adds more threads and equates to just over £15 per thread paying £23-£27 is stupid even more so now you pay the same for the 8100. per thread

You know exactly what I meant. Every single Ryzen thread you pop in and always try to belittle alternative view points.
I hope your Intel Shares are doing well.

A buyer at this end of the market, could very well want to upgrade next year. You seem to completely ignore the Intel Socket change habit as being fine. A Ryzen buyer this year, can buy next years top end AM4 chip with no further changes. Your beloved Intel doesn't offer that option. Yes used was maybe not a great example but will certainly be a cheaper option.

You seem to ignore that AMD have a habit of changing sockets too. You are taking AMD at face value, I am suggesting you don't believe what they say in terms of CPU timelines as they have consistently not hit these times.

Also, you are discounting the concept that AMD may offer a rough backward compatible interface, such as the AM3 to AM3+ move, but very few people, after seeing the limitations, actually kept their AM3 boards.

Intel have been extremely consistent in their socket/mobo compability. Every socket has been compatible for 2 generations of processors. Consistently helps consumers.

To suggest people upgrade so frequently that you should make a decision on what *might* happen is just silly. This isn't about bias or owning Intel shares (which is farcical, I don't own any, nor do I receive any financial compensation, and I would appreciate it if you stopped the libelous accusations).

We can only wait and see what AMD do with the socket.
Re upgrades dont get caught in the intel era where there was actually no point upgrading. And the reason for any lucky 2 gens of socket compatibility were because the chips for them were identical.
Now we are in a time where we get something for our money, CPU's are much cheaper, there is competition and the promise of real changes in upcoming chips.
Upgrading relativly frequently could well be something we do going forward - thanks to AMD.
