Cheapest it's been on amazon by 2p xD? For most games this is rather decent. Remember because it's the X version you need your own cooler for it.

You won't actually notice the difference though, it's all benchmark hype. In real world use you just won't notice.

But AMD have confirmed this socket will be relevant until at least 2020. Can't say the same for Intel.

If I was building a new pc now and wanting to future proof it (as much as a pc can be) I'd defo go AMD.

Does the AMD CPU not multi-task better for gaming whilst streaming though?

Yeah unless you go for the super expensive i9. AMD are unrivaled in value for money though and I keep debating picking one up, got the i3 8100 right now though.

Strange how cpu's can drop in price and yet they are more compilcated to make, no drop in graphics or ram prices.
wtf. crazy price.. can't believe I paid £320 for an i7 6700k lol

the big RAM makers formed a cartel to keep prices high. As for GPUs, AMD cannot compete and thus Nvidia is free to drive up market prices. The GTX 1080 is a mid-range chip sold as a high end part for example. Something 1080 owners don't like to hear

The 1080 is not a mid range chip it's the second best consumer GPU available. And no I don't have a 1080 that's just bs.
The 1080 is their midrange chip, sold as a high end part. It's their smaller midrange chip. Typically we got the "big chip" as the high end part. Due to lack of competition, Nvidia has successfully shifted their chips down a tier.

So what would have been the 1060 is the 1080. The chip behind the 1050/ti would have been the 1060, the 1030 would have used the 1050/ti chip and actually been worth getting. And they get to keep their actual big chip and sell it as a Ti(tan), first milking people with the titan variant, then later selling it as a 1080 Ti. Even then, it's still not the fully unlocked big chip. They just don't need to.

It's not the first time they've done it, the 600 series was shifted down a tier due to lower than expected performance from the Radeon 7000 series. Then the 700 series was a rebrand of the 600 series, but at the original tiers. So a 680 was renamed the 770 and so on.

They can do this due to lack of competition from AMD. Instead of releasing their big chip as the 1080, they can simply shift tiers and sell their smaller midrange chip as an x80, and reap the extra profits. We still haven't seen their fully unlocked "big chip" in a consumer card for the 1000 series, even the 1080ti is still cut down, they simply don't need to as there's no competition.

The 1080 for sure is their high end SKU, but they're selling you their midrange chip in that SKU.

Wrong, GPU's are more complex now, going forward the indication is that the cpu will integrate with gpu, not the other way round as at present

Mining machines use GPU's for a good reason, and the mining activity over the past few years have also driven gpu prices up

tell me about it. quite a few of us got conned by intel with skylake and kabylake.
What makes me laugh is some people still are getting conned, even tho intel have openly admited it!

I have actually gave up on pc gaming/upgrading.. it's a damm expensive hobby. I purely play on the PS4 PRO now. I still have an rig i7 6700k r9 290x (I sold my gtx 1070 but I couldn't part ways with this card ) 500GB SSD, 250GB SSD, 750w gold psu etc.. mostly just parts i had at hand.. it's now used for college work 😁
