AMD Cpus seem to be the way forward.

This or the ryzen 2600?


2600 (wait a week or two for it to be around the same price). Similar performance out the box but lower power draw and better overclocking potential.

2600 is only £10 more and is quite a bit better. Also the 3xxx series is coming in a month and that will smash the 1st and 2nd gen Ryzen.
No idea why you you would get this instead of the 2600
I'm waiting for the 7 1700 to come down...or shall I get the 2600? Upgrading my Plex server.
Get the 2600 for £130 and sell the games for £30-£35.

no point just get 1700 will do fine i have no problems with it up to you then u can wait until 3rd gen drop in a year or 2
Decent CPU for a budget build. Bought this for about £190, 18 months ago

2600 is a tenner more I'd go for that


And comes with a cooler, unlike this.
Wow good deal. BTW these outperform the intel quad core chips like the 7700k at gaming now. Things have changed since the 1000 series launched in 2017

Expect prices to increase on the new AMD stuff as they are quite high end stuff. Most people wont need PCIE 4.0 yet.

3000 series (US) pricing is available -- 3600 is RRP $199. Haven't seen any UK pricing yet but probably £199. No benchmarks but would expect it to beat the 2600/1600X comfortably

Stock cooler is fine, unless you plan to overclock

The 1600X doesn't come with any cooler, that was my point.

partially true - they're doing much better than 4/4 and 2/4 parts (thanks a lot to all the guys that kept recommending overpriced i3 and 5s because they ran csgo in 720p low with a 1080ti a lot faster than ryzens) in recent titles, and the trend is set - but the 4c/8t i7s like the 6 and 7700 are still holding their own.

Yeah. Things are changing fast. Games are being updated somewhat too besides the hardware side.

Though another thing is that 1440p and other higher resolutions are going to take much higher precedence soon.

Debatable when talking numbers. I have the 7700K and it's passmark is notably shocking compared to older generations and especially so Vs say the 1700.

Think my next build will definitely be team red and maybe I'll splash out and build a team red Plex server too

Intel's stepping up their integrated graphics precisely for this. I'm sure they're aiming for something like 8k video playback and 4k60 gaming although I don't have a source on that and I'll be shocked if they can.

To be fair though I'm yet to have the CPU be the bottleneck on a game. My 1080 starts to sweat long before my CPU at 4k60 depending on settings and my 7700k only cries when background apps are stealing power from my games.

Pay a bit more for the 2600x because it comes with the better wraith spire cooler (2600 comes with wraith stealth)

That's the reason I'm waiting for a good price on the 2600x anyway.
Nice, although as pointed out, possibly worth spending the extra for a 2600 or 2600X for the cooler, which will likely eat the difference. Or the Ryzen 7 1700 on Amazon for £139.97 with the Wraith Spire RGB, if one is into such RGB things.

Also the price of Threadripper right now! :O £488.39 for the 1950X! Not really great for general gamers, but 16c/32t with quad-channel and 64 PCIe lanes... 4 gamers 1 PC anyone?

Edit: Forgot to say "Heat added, thanks @Tacavas "

My bad, I've got the 1600 which does. Didn't realise the 1600X doesn't come with a cooler... Odd that it doesn't
