I can understand no to Apple but you may aswell cut out the middle man and murder all the polar bears if you buy AMD stuff

I'm just joking about AMD generally using more watts for your performance in their products, not really up to date on the latest Ryzen stuff though.
Whats the all core boost on these, 4.5Ghz?

AMD outperforms intel in performance:watt now too.

It's graphics they're still behind in, Nvidia is easily more efficient.

Mostly in multi-threaded tasks, gaming still mostly goes to intel, particularly for making the most out of high fps. There have been some with issues on zen 2 particularly with MSI. Personally I'm happy with my 3600 though, it seemed like a solid choice for price and performance and the GPU is going to be the limiting factor for a lot of people. Depends on one's priorities.
People over estimate the gaming performance difference. For most buying something like a 9700k/9900k with a higher end GPU they aren't gonna be running 1080p medium settings. And at max quality the difference falls in the single percentage range usually.

As for this particular CPU its likely only a few % (single digits) faster than a 3600 in gaming. so Ryzen is definitely a better choice overall . Personally wouldn't buy a 9000 series CPU on what is now a dead socket/platform and Intel's archaic architecture , while Zen 3 on 7nm+ is also coming next year.

tin foil hat moment... do you guys find it weird that every time a new processor model comes out its always like a 5-10% increase in performance and efficiency? like, surely there must have been some breakthrough by this point? are they releasing all that stuff overtime to get more money? but what about amd? hmm

Mine gets to 4.6/4.7 on stock settings.
Have pretty decent OC potential too. Had mine stable at 5.4ghz, but general run stock as I cant see a need for 5.4ghz

That isn't a tin foil hat moment at all. That's exactly how the tech industry, as well as many others work. Just look at how quickly intel had the higher core/thread count consumer grade CPU's ready to go as soon as they saw Ryzen was a threat. After years and years of incremental upgrades to the same basic architecture. They simply had no reason to release anything better when they had no competition so held it in reserve till they did.
Why doesn't this have hyperthreading? It's an i7.

Because it's Intel. AMD have absolutely demolished Intel on every single level. One of their latest processors- AMD EPYC 7742 has 64 cores and is the first processor in history to perform realtime HEVC 8k 10 bit encoding. They are miles and miles ahead of Intel.

If anything you'd have thought that would have had the opposite effect. It seems insane to bring out a gimped I7 when they are up against such strong competition. Unless it's an upgrade from a budget chip to a better one using the same motherboard, people would have to be crazy to buy a consumer grade Intel chip at the moment. I'm still happy with the performance of my 6700K so am still on Intel for now, but I'd definitely be going Ryzen if I was buying a system now.

With intel's countless security issues lately it's recommended to leave HT off. You're also going to lose 15-25% performance due to the software mitigations, depending on workload.

Even if that's true, which 70% of experts say it isn't - it's faster by the width of a cigarrette paper.
