This or the i8700k? (To be used for video creation/encoding)

I think you'll find this will be better as long as your software uses all the cores.

Think the intel out performs this in single core tasks but they're harder to find, use newer currently expensive motherboards and are more expensive generally.

Try checking out the ryzen 7 1800x if you don't need the ridiculous amount of cores/hyperthreading.

But between the 2, I'd take this.

The 1700,1700x and the 1800x are all 8 core 16 threads which is exactly the same as this.

C/T count is indeed the same. But the compelling reason for the 1900X is the increased cache sizing, quad channel memory and the 64 PCIe lanes. You should also achieve a better OC than the 1800X due to better binning.


If you're doing encoding or general workstation computing, the TR would be my choice over anything Intel produce at this price point.

The Intel boards start at around £90 whereas boards for this are closer to three hundred.
This is a bit pointless for most people but the 16 core version makes more sense.

The 8700K, easily. Unless you want quad channel memory for whatever reason.

The clockspeed advantage of the 8700K outweigh the extra cores/threads, and motherboards are cheaper for it than X399 boards.
The smarter choice would be a Ryzen 1700. I got mine for £230 and overclocked it to 3.7Ghz @ default voltages. My B350 Strix motherboard was around £110.

The other aspect of ThreadRipper vs Ryzen is that higher level of PB/XFR is 2C/4T where as my 1800X reaches mainly 1C/1T.

Have you tried overclocking any higher?
excellent!! cheers!!

I tried 3.8Ghz with a +0.05v offset but it didn't seem stable. It could have been my memory but I didn't have the patience to do more testing. Didn't think it was with the hassle or the higher electricity costs!
