You are right! It's the 1600x that does not come with one, my bad.
Loving all these Ryzen deals!
How does this compare to I7 6700K please? Thanks
ryzen gen 2 comes in january, I just want you to know guys.
Not a fantastic price and it will likely drop a little relatively soon but its a great cpu at this price if you need one right now.
I need DDR4 to drop, its riduculous prices currently!
Good price. Think I'll wait for gen2 though. Would bite if it went back down to 136.

I'm so sorry, I'll drop prices immediately 😋

Drop your pants and i'll buy
the ryzen 1700 is probably better value

i7 6700K would be better for games and other workloads that utilise less threads due to the higher IPC. Any R5 would be a downgrade all things considered, IMO. If you're upgrading from Haswell i7s or later and specifically looking for multithreaded performance (e.g video editing), R7 1700 is really where it starts to be worth the sacrifice in raw performance.

Depends on usage. But generally ryzen has better performance to the pound. i.e you can overclock on the stock cooler to 3.8/3.9 quite nicely. I think the i7 is around £250 and then another £30 - £50 for a cooler. I7 will run 5/6 games better and all single core tasks but if you like video editing/rendering/modeling (insert intense tasks), upgrade path, budget. But as most people will tell you its not a good time to buy any computer parts which makes my time machine too expensive to build now. If you just want to game and not stream the I5 is better value over the i7 (shock).

You might want to check if asus still have the deal where you buy ryzen and an asus motherboard and get two free games.
This CPU is so good. Got it on Black Friday and I'm really happy with it. It's incredible value for money especially considering the Wraith Spire comes with it (which, for a stock cooler, is very good). I use Steam Link quite heavily and this processor absolutely blows my old Intel out of the water for in-home streaming, all those extra threads must be doing something. Heat

Yeah I know right, I'd love to snag a 16GB kit eventually if prices get any better, I doubt it though.

Also on-topic, amazing CPU for the price, I've been running this CPU for awhile and had no problems.

i7 6700k is faster. A little bit in the relative i.e synthetic and productivity, quite a bit in the gaming tests 720p/1080p.

It is very similar to the newer i5 8400. Assuming you looked at a 6700k because you may have an older board or seen it cheap, it's a fast CPU. If you aren't buying because of an older board, then i5 8400 is the better option. Intel still dominate most games.
To think, 12 months ago for 168 quid the best youd get is a locked 3.4ghz and 4 threads.

Source? I thought it was march.
Got one of these processors 4 month ago, absolutely fantastic.

firstly those games are using high ipc and not cores. And secondly you get a r5 1600, b350 mobo and at a squizz 8gb for a single i7 6700k

And there were no oc r5 1600 scores on that graph..

Most games in the next 6 to 18months will not be ipc bound ..

A wide selection of games. Cherry picking games just because you don't like the results is not representative of the selection of games people ACTUALLY play. Most games (like >90 percent) are not extremely multi-threaded, a miniscule percentage are and that isn't changing dramatically any time soon like it hasn't the past 10 years. Intel is faster, it just usually varies by how much.

The fact that the person asked about a 6700k when it is two generations old might suggest they are looking at that specific CPU because they already have a compatible board, or perhaps seen a deal on it.

There were no OC 6700k scores either.

It hasn't changed much in the last 10 years as the base has been dual core.. high ipc was the thinking back then. The oc in that graph was the i5 actually ..

And yes those selection of games when combined show core bounding ..

Game engines may only be updated every 18months may be a 2 or 3 year cycle.

So my points stand.

Quad core processors have been very common for well over 5 years. Sandy Bridge (e.g the legendary i5 2500k) is nearly 7 years old at this point! Consoles with 8 core x86 processors are 4 years old. If you somehow think that there is a dramatic revolution immediately around the corner for massively multi-threaded games then you're severely mistaken.

There was a wide variety of games. stop moaning. They adequately reflect the current performance trend. Game engines only really dramatically change every new console generation, the current one we are nowhere near the end of yet.

Your points are bizarrely not reflective of current reality and unfounded speculation, at best. Stay on point.

Ryzen 1600 is a very good CPU, with good value, but 6700k is faster with a very thorough and wide reaching comparison that I posted proving that for the person that asked. The benches do not lie.
My 2500k died 2 weeks ago. The king is dead. 😔
Very tempted to go ryzen now as my entire rig is over 5 years old. I think I got the CPU, ram and motherboard in a crazy bundle for about £375 back in 2012. Only newish part is a 8gb sapphire nitro 480.

Slow in games.
Fantastic CPU bought mine for £195 back in june and never looked back at intel

This is such an amazing line of cpus especially if you want to do any gaming and 3d modelling ect which I do.
