Seen it on here recently but its even cheaper now. I've been checking the price for a while now, £200 off is the best bargain I've seen in a long time.

Not really seeing the £200 off as it seems to hover around £300 anyway - remember RRP is rarely indicate of actual selling price. Still looks to be the best deal right now so heated...
266 is a nice deal. Thanks
Huge amount of cpu for not too much money. Have some heat!!
Great deal if your going for a ryzen build

Great deal if your going for a ryzen build


Yeah but not so great if you're going for an intel build
The price reduction is most likely due to the April release of the replacement "Ryzen 2xxx" CPU's.
After all this Meltdown/Spectre palava i will be moving back to a AMD CPU very soon, so it's nice to see the prices are good bang for your quid on AMD.

Heat.
The link goes through to one that costs £282.00. The one for £266.34 is on back order.
Nice deal, but if your not in a rush maybe wait a little longer for the Ryzen 2 series to drop in April and hopefully these will drop further
I only paid a little less than this for a 1700.
Sorry for being simple, but any advice how this would compare against a Skylake I5-6600k (not overclocked). I note the 05 is 3.9ghz whereas this is only 3.6

Only use my computer for VR (Vive) but sometimes think my CPU is bottlenecking me.
Specs
GTX 1080
8GB Ram - Team Group Elite 8GB (2x4GB) DDR4
MSI Z170-A Pro Intel Z170 (Socket 1151) DDR4 ATX Motherboard

Also, I assume you don't need to remove the motherboard to change processors? I did build my PC from scratch a while a go but never had to change a CPU yet.

Thanks

1800X far better for productivity, but not really much better for gaming.

Overclock the 6600K and you'll find a lot more performance overall for 'free'. 4.4GHz should be easily within your grasp without any particular strain to the system. Chances are there is plenty more to be had than that but that is an extremely conservative goal and comfortably attainable for 24/7 usage, even on a modest cooler.

If you're going for the highest frames possible when gaming then your current set up is more than fine. The base clock speed of the i5-6600K is 3.5Ghz with the turbo frequency being 3.9Ghz. If your PC doesn't struggle with that you could easily overclock to 4.2-4.5GHz and get receive a small performance increase without having to buy anything.

You can check what the bottleneck is by looking at the CPU/GPU usage whilst in VR. E.g. On my old PC my CPU would be running at 100% but the GPU would be only around 60%.

Unfortunately you will need to purchase a new motherboard for the AM4 socket type if you wish to use the 1800X in a build.

I'd more than say the cpu is the bottle neck along with only 8gb of ram. with only 4c/4t compared to the ryzen's 8c/16t. I would check against the games you are using. and of course balance that against future games ..

If you are using w10 it should be a case of just deleting any chipset drivers and cpu; power down.. install the mobo/cpu and heatsink and reboot.

Well I guess like the saying goes 2 out of 3 ain't bad. Still if you're going to have to pay for all new kit that's vulnerable to Spectre seems like a bit of a waste.

You do realize that AMD was impacted by the same bugs, right?

Their PR did a pretty good job of sidestepping and saying they were 'mostly immune' to it, yet they released patches for both Spectre variants.

pcworld.com/art…tml

Nice how AMD claim they are 'mostly immune to it' but still are patching their CPUs!

Their PR lied to you, they were impacted by the same vulnerabilities, why else would they patch BOTH variants of Spectre?

And Meltdown impacts both.

It's a win for AMD PR though, they clearly convinced the world this didn't impact AMD CPUs (just look at your response!)

Yet, when the patches hit the fan, they are still doing it.
will only jump back to AMD line until the Hackintosh is made possible and stable.

So, let's ignore the fact you've missed out the part about the AMD patches being optional because they believe they are mostly immune, and take a look at what you've said: "And Meltdown impacts both."

Now, let's take a look at what AMD (and basically every other source) say - to quote from the AMD website: "GPZ Variant 3 (Rogue Data Cache Load or Meltdown) is not applicable to AMD processors."

I'm not sure why you want to put misinformation (aka lies) out there, but there we go.

Meltdown Intel only issue. AMD vulnerable to Spectre so they patched the issue. However they are less exposed due to architecture differences. AMD performance hit is not as bad as Intel.
However I agree they confused lot of people.

Anandtech have a good article about both vulnerabilities. Worth the read.
I like how the product has 7 identical images.
Ram prices put me off upgrading.

When the CEO of a company decides that dumping his shares is more important than protecting it's consumers from security flaws they have known about for some time, then to fumble and bumble and still not have fixes in place for everybody affected, then it is time for me to look elsewhere, AMD might have similar issues but as a consumer Intel has lost my trust big time, and i have had a Intel cpu since is moved from the anthon XP many many moons ago, trust, that is the biggest point here, i can deal with the spilt milk, but what i can't deal with is the fact they have still not mopped up their mess in anyway, almost to a level of arrogance i might add.

Oh, and it will not only be Intel getting the boot from my PC, Asus will also be gone as it seems they too feel that my 3 year old Asus Mobo is so anceint and old that they won't bother to release a patch to counter these security flaw, so yeah, Intel and asus can go suck a massive rotten egg.

This is the best for that actually.
Whilst 8 core 16 threads is overkill for 99% today's users (frankly intels 6 core 12 threads is too) this is a great price considering its on par with the 8700k in most if not all of the benchmarks.

If I had to chose I'd probably give this cpu a go over an Intel one if I was in the marker today for a new computer. If I had a 3770k or above however I wouldn't upgrade since you just won't make use of the extra cores with today's games.
Just picked up a 2600k from ebay for £60 price to performance you can't really compare, it overclocks easily too ru-clip.com/vid…tml


This one overclocks to 5ghz so even better than above benchmark when comparing to a 8700k in gaming, I could get a Motherboard, cpu and ram for less than this 1800X chip alone and for only a few fps increase in comparison not worth buying until it comes down in price heavily or they bring out something that comes even close to match the price to performance ratio of a 6 year old i7 CPU that holds it own still today when nicely overclocked.

Depends what your doing though. For productivity the 1800X will absolutely dominate.
meh, was able to bag a used 1700x for £180 (plus z370 carbon pro m/b, 16gb memory etc separtely all totaling £360) from someone with xmas buyers regret :B

Depends what you're doing with it. The 2600k is 4 core 8 threads. Ryzen 1800x is 8 core 16 threads which dominates for video editing etc in multicore.
