"This deal also comes with up to €60 worth of Steam vouchers"

As far as I can see, the deal on that particular motherboard comes with 20 Euros steam voucher. 40 and 60 Euro vouchers applies to more expensive boards?

'The Deal' is just an umbrella term for the promotion. The other boards are all on offer as well, if you were interested.

For this particular board it is €20 I believe, I've added a disclaimed, nonetheless.

I bought this from Amazon a few weeks ago for £139. Seems pretty decent currently running an i3-7350k at 5.0ghz nicely.

Just need good gpu deal to finish off.

Also have this board, runs great. HJas my 7700k running happily at 4.8.

Only issue i have at the moment is that the software is currently very buggy and annoying on Windows 10

I thought if you were building a new system AMD Ryzen was the way to go now.

The only people who are really interested in Ryzen are people who need the hyper-threading for rendering.

​That depends on what you're using the system for. For gaming even older generation Intel CPUs are superior to Ryzen. It's not as if Ryzen doesn't perform for gaming just the Intel CPUs are better performing for the money. For multithreaded tasks Ryzen wins. Existing Ryzen CPUs are getting a price cut soon as AMD are preparing to release their R9 series CPUs.

I'm looking to get the 1700, where did you read existing ones are going to get a price cut?

Now £138.99

Depends what you require.

I've just built a new rig this week with an i7 7700k & Asus Maximus Hero IX and it's an excellent motherboard. £230 on Amazon though.

​Thanks for replying. what GPU do you use for that?

980Ti currently from my old build, but will be upgrading to 1080Ti in due course!

I've been looking at the i7 7700k and the asus z270-e board. Asus have a cash back offer on too at the moment. For 7700 and the e board, its 80 cash back I think.

Just sold my old mobo and i7 930 for 180 quid. All in think I'm looking at 300 quid cost of change to upgrade so not too bad really!

Not sure what you found so funny. Ryzen's extra cores at any given price-point are definitely a more future-proof option.

Future proof? Why do you talk like the market is evolving rapdily?

By the time that hyper-threading becomes relevant intel will have released several hyper-threading processors with superior architecture. Buying Ryzen right now for anything other than rendering is a losing game. Intels 6th and 7th gen intels aren't really that expensive anymore.

Just built a system last week with this board. Very nice board. No problems at all with a kaby lake CPU and a 1080Ti and a NVMe SSD it's lightning quick. Even the IO shield is insulated. The gigabyte software for the board is of course crap, but if you want fancy different LED colours etc it works.

The irony being that you've become a parody of yourself.

I mean you could at least try to support your argument with benchmarks and factual data, because from where the rest of us are sitting Intel's latest will outperform Ryzen on almost every single task except the hyper-thread. Gaming is superior performance coming from intel and single core processing tasks (which is almost everything right now) all perform better on Intel.

Try again.

No amount of factual data can sway an internet debate, Steve! Your posts made it apparent that you dislike AMD and I hate seeing a one-sided approach go uncontested. I urge anybody in the market to buy a new PC to consider both AMD and Intel CPUs at their pricepoint, and to do the research into benchmarks themselves. CPU development has been stale for the past decade until AMD released Ryzen this year. Although the likes of the Pentium still have a place, at most consumer pricepoints the double/triple thread count that Ryzen offers over Intel is a very convincing alternative.

steve_bezerker

Why do you talk like the market is evolving rapdiddly?

Because for the first time in a decade, the release of Ryzen and its increased core counts is genuinely a game-changer for consumer CPUs. Current Intel CPUs may be 0-10% faster in some games. But Ryzen's are still more than enough to run today's games smoothly, all the while offering 2-3 times more threads for the same price, which is already starting to make a difference. If you're building a system solely for today's applications then you can even get by with a budget system. More than that and you're hoping for some degree of future-proofing, too. Especially if you're thinking of spending... oooh.... £120+ on a motherboard.

Bit tech have always been a good place for descent reviews, in regards to system builds, this might be helpful to some ;

While a bit pricey for my taste, I think the 'Enthusiast Gamer' system might be where a lot people look at.

Whats to Giggle at? ~The IPC of the intel is slightly better (currently) But surely everybody can see the intel 7700k is running constantly between 90-100% usage in the likes of BF1. While the 1700-1800 Ryzen is hitting around 40% which is the reasoning behind having higher minimum frame rates. Anybody building a new rig for any purpose shouldn't be put off by either Intel or AMD. What they should ignore is people trying to bash AMD for absolutely no reasons at all.

Having multiple cores and threads does what exactly? Ryzen looks great on the box, useful for the future blah blah.

It's going to be another 2 years before DX12 fully takes off with gaming.

I didn't claim AMD Ryzen specifically wasn't up to scratch, the guy I responded to was suggesting that the only way to build new PC's was with Ryzen at the helm, and that is quite frankly the opposite of the truth.

In terms of Price vs Performance at 1080p the Intel is still outperforming Ryzen's - easily.

It might not make any difference to the 'google chrome' user - but for any of us who care enough to want a decent rig for gaming (especially when looking at a Z270 mobo) you want the best performance possible in your games - Which is still the 7700k.

I don't think you know enough about computers?
No 7700k has ever ran at 90% for a modern game that's on the market. The 4700k only hits 80% on heavy load and that's 3 generations old.

There is no such thing as a bottleneck yet for the 7700k. In 2 years time you might be right, but as it stands right now the latest intel chips SLAUGHTER games with ease.

Im not about to start getting into a debate with somebody who starts off with cheap jabs like a petulant child.

There are plenty of videos showing the higher frame rates on Ryzen rigs due to the CPU usage. I can absolutely guarantee there videos showing the 7700 at 100% CPU usage. Go look it up.

Have a great day!

There goes your credibility. Confirmed no idea what you are talking about. Ryzen has never benchmarked higher than the 7700k. Even against the 1800x the bench is at least 15% higher.

Thanks for playing!
