In basket, dropped today at some point, quick google shows overclockers are the same price, probably a price match, but if im not wrong they have expensive delivery?

I paid over £300 for my 1700x at launch so this is a bargain if I had something else to do with my cpu I'd upgrade to this. They may be over 12 months old but they are very powerful and at this price there's nothing to touch them nothing comes close and they are only a little less powerful than there replacements. I shall probably upgrade next time round.
This is a very good price. Even if it is last gen.
Amazing price ,why cold

In terms of IPC do you know if this cpu is the same as say the 1600 variant? I read somewhere the new gen cpus are better by around 10% on IPC but no idea if that’s true

Yes, most benchmarks find Zen+ to be 10% faster clock for clock.

I wouldn't buy an 1800x at this point, not when you can get a 2700 from CEX for less, and overclock.

Cool thanks.
Do the zen+ chips have the same speed clock for clock? Say 2600 vs 2700
More or less, yes.

Though the 2600 being 3+3 means it can perform slightly worse than the 2700's 4+4 configuration in tasks utilising 4-6 cores. (as it has greater dependence upon infinity fabric between CCX's).

In real world usage the difference is tiny though. Hardware unboxed did a video on the topic where they benched a 1700x 2+2 Vs 1700x 4+0 (by disabling different cores).

That all depends what you want it for I guess. Personally I have no need for hyper threading so gaming on an Intel is just the standard. I would rather pay slightly more for the 8700K and have the faster SC speeds, the Nvidia support and IMO the better architecture.

Heat for the price, but I think claiming nothing touches this at this price point is a bit of a stretch.
Which of the Ryzen is good for 4K video editing?
I need to run it on Linux, my OS of choice.

I was going to buy this yesterday for £212 ... luckily I hesitated.
Still on Haswell, been weighing up whether to upgrade my i5-4670k to i7-4790k for VR.

Painful to see only available used and generally more expensive than this! If only didn't need to replace the 16GB RAM (DDR3) too and I would change board to use this!
This or the 2700X at £267.97? Argh!
1800x doesnt come with a cooler for the record. Lower speed too.
Still a good deal. Especially if you dont need the higher speeds of Ryzen 2xxx
Noob question but can this work with a 980Ti or does it need an AMD card? My system is decent but been thinking of upgrading my i5 3570k

How much is slightly more? If you're talking about the 8700K then you compare that to a 2700X.

In regards to the actual post there's absolutely nothing wrong with the 1800X. It's a great CPU. I'd still opt for the 1700 and overclock tbh.
