AMD Ryzen 1700X finally dropped under £300.
Next cheapeast is £295 from Scan and then over £300 everywhere else.

Recently used this processor in my new build, OC'd to 3.9GHz with no issues so no point getting a 1800X!

£275 delivered on Amazon.fr, someone literally posted it an hour ago. Decent price if you have to have it shipped only from a UK site tho.
I'm reiterated what I said in the other thread as well, no cooler with this CPU so factor that in if buying

The 1700X is an 'enthuisiast' processor, designed for overclocking and therefore is expected to be paired with a third party cooling system. Buy the 1700 if you want the Wraith Spire cooler.
They are struggling to shift this junk processor, hence the give away price. Cold.
Hot. Can't buy this cheaper now that the other thread with it at £275 has expired

Junk?! Ryzen processors are amazing
This is ultra hot. For those with 3rd party coolers this is better to buy than the 1700. More likely to hit a higher top clockspeed and higher out of the box.

It's doing well actually. Really well.

He is fishing, I wouldn't bother to engage.
Clearly a lot of intel fanboys on this site

They are only amazing to old AMD cpus. Nothing amazing about catching up with Intel's cpus from 4th-7th generations. Intel was delivering Ryzen performance since 2013.
and yet Intel are now strangely upping the core count. Intel would have gladly been passing off dual cores as i7 forever if they could.

That is not Intel's problem. Software developers failed to create multi core optimized programs / games. As far as I'm concerned, Intel has been offering best performance/core and was matching market needs in terms of number of cores. 99% of games and apps still fail to use more than 2-4 cores.

Yeah, for a good reason. Intel i7 2600K (Q1 2011) is still relevant, comparable to most Ryzen cpus, but but can be found on eBay for 1/4 price of Ryzen. Will Ryzen be relevant after 6-7 years? I highly doubt that.

As an owner of a 2500K, I've just moved to a R7 1700. Things like video encoding is night an day speed wise.
The 2600K was an option. However I always wanted a clear upgrade path if I wanted to.
Sticking with 1155 sockets would have limited me to a 3770k that didn't offer much improvement either.

I'm happy with my upgrade especially as I'm not after it for just gamimng or single threaded aspects.

It is also for anyone who wants the higher speeds without Bios tinkering. Needing a cooler is still relevant though.
My 1700 is sitting here on 3.65GHZ standard cooler at 29degrees. Yet to see it creep over 60 on full load. So if you want to tinker the 1700 is a better all in one box option.

Ryzen are not bad, don't get me wrong. But they are not ground breaking either. Definitely not matching the hype. AMD have to prove themselves in the next 5 years if they want more Intel owners to buy Ryzen. For example I have a i7-4790k. No Rzyen cpu will make me move to AMD at he moment. For games, Youtube, multimedia, chat, music Ryzen is offering actually lower performance.
