This is little better than a chromebook, and there are many chromebooks muuch better. Its only suitable as a web browser. And even then the resolution will hinder it - you will need to scroll around the screen to view web pages. Save your money and look for something with full HD, even if you have to save up a couple of months.

This is the cheapest I have seen an 1800x but the 2600x is available for order at under £200 and the 2700x for £290 and both of those come with coolers. A half decent cooler for the 1800x will be £30? maybe, so £260 vs £290 for the latest release.

It probably won't be dispatched, but: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/crucial-4gb-ddr4-2400-ecc-288-pin-2899-amazoncouk-2926993 It's only 4GB dimms, 2400 clock, and a very loose CL17 timing. However it's ECC, and single rank, and given that it's not a typical consumer SKU and normally has higher than average price, it *might* have Samsung b-die chips on it. Honestly it's probably not worth scrimping if it's going to compromise your build; just eat the extra £50 cost of getting known 2x 8GB 3200 b-die.

I know. I have my monitor plugged into a laptop. I need something soon aswell. But I dont want to pay £13/1400 on a graphics card that is nearly 2 years old. Thats why I got the asus GTX1070 deal for £800 but the 2 computers they sent wouldnt turn on so laptops direct refunded me. They have taken them off their website now and only have the i7 models for sale. They said there was a production problem with them. Now I am hungry for a new desktop. I didnt really consider this deal for myself. I just thought it might be useful for somebody. I wouldn't have posted it if I knew about the CPU as it kind of beats the purpose of having that card.

stuellis

At the moment GPU, RAM and SSD prices are all very inflated. There is a global shortage on solid state memory and new factories are not due to start production until 2020. RAM and SSD prices are nearly twice what they were 18-24 months ago. GPU’s are not only impacted by the shortage of memory but also the massive demand put on them by crypto-miners. I have money aside to build my new pc but I cannot bring myself to do it at these prices. It’s a gamble, prices could go up before coming down. It’s a terrible time price wise for building/buying a pc ;(

whopaysrrp

Fair enough. You seem to know what your talking about. I guess these days there really is no cheap way of getting a desktop. I think I will wait until the new cards are released and try and get one direct. Thanks for responding.

stuellis

Unfortunately no, it’s a socket released in 2013 and there has been FM3, FM3+ and now the current FM4. Even the best FM3+ processors struggle to hold 60fps in the latest AAA games. CPU’s on FM2/FM2+ were average performing when new. The other problem is this system uses DDR3 so even if you wanted to upgrade to a modern platform you also need to buy new DDR4 RAM.

whopaysrrp

Is there a processor that you could upgrade to with that board? That would handle aaa games?

To be honest I'm probably going to wait for RAM prices to (hopefully) drop. My i5 4460 is still ok for the time being, I do a lot of gaming on my PC so I'll probably go for another i5 later. I do think you were initially being a bit unfair to Ryzen though when you said: "To overclock the Ryzen, you *need* a 70 quid board. For the i5 8400, you can buy a 50 quid board and get a CPU that doesn't need to be OC'd to compete with the 1600." Now you're saying that the pricing is similar, which I would agree with.

Nate1492

I can't like the Aira site here, but they have one for 52. Are you looking at non Micro? If you require a full ATX board, then yes, the cheapest is 72. It's the same story for all AM4 sockets. If you refuse to get a micro ATX board, the cheapest is 74 after delivery. So, there really is nothing between the two brands right now in motherboard pricing. You have the same value options, mid range options, and expensive options for both. Have a look at the AM4 ones, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference. Intel: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/products/motherboard/#sort=price&xcx=0&c=129,131,130,128 AMD: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/products/motherboard/#sort=price&xcx=0&s=33

Nate1492

Yeah, its just really hard to read someone's blatant untrues.

athonjohn93

Cheapest is £72 which ends up being £80 delivered :( Would rather spend £90 on amazon for the GIGABYTE Z370P D3, then I'd have the choice of an upgrade for £10 more.

athonjohn93

What do you expect, honestly? If you go into AMD threads and suggest that an Intel processor is better, of course people will argue with you. Especially the poster of the deal, who probably bought one just before they posted it.

I have no clue what is wrong with your PC, but I can *ASSURE* you the FX 6350 is NOT a better CPU for BF1. Turn down your graphics like your cousin, he 'runs it flawless' because he's not running at your FPS or image quality.

If there is another reason why I am having issues, then I will happily try any ideas you have... I need to stop the 100% cpu spikes causing my stutters/fps drops.

Looking4Glitches

As I said before my cousin has an FX 6350 + HD 7950 vs My GTX 1070sc + i5 4670k and his runs flawlessly. He lives next door so I see his running all the time. And if they were being nice to amd owners what happened with them not recommending my cpu as min spec?.

Let me start by saying that you are fundamentally correct, there is no "perfectly safe" HW/SW - only bugs and exploits that haven't been yet found. Having said that, there are issues and issues. Those "terrifying" AMDFlaws are exploits that required unsigned bios reflashes and/or full local admin right to the box to be triggered. Worrying about them is akin to worrying that a crim can copy your locks and enter in your home again whenever he wants, after you let them in unsupervised and gave them the master key. If you are genuinely concerned about them, do some extra research, be glad that a resolution path is in place and please don't let stock manipulators win by keep on spreading FUDs that have been extensively debunked. Anyway, there are degrees of unsafeness, and as far as it is known, amd has the "safest" products right now, which hardly means anything for most end users, as there are effective mitigation strategies around the meaningful exploits.

Horrorwood

CTS labs LOL You can not be serious? The chip flaws that require you to have root/admin access to the pc... Or my favourite one, the one where you need a modded bios to exploit it. Yes they needed fixing. No it's normal to give a manufacturer 1 day notice of your findings. Spectre and meltdown were also found by an "outside source" and given a very advance notice before the findings were made public.

vmistery

Yea AMD are definitely behind Nvidia at the moment in GPUs. I’ve always been quite surprised about that considering AMD are in every console for several years now! The reason I took your comment the wrong way was just because it sounded like you were saying AMD had been negligent in not releasing the info on their issues after only knowing about it 3 days.

MysticalUndies

I'm am definitely not anti AMD. I wanted to correct the person who thought Amd didn't have any security issues as this is spreading misinformation and isn't correct because they all have their own issues. I litterally put about 2 sentances and linked articles. I didn't bad mouth the chip and say anything about it being inferior to other brands. I'm in no way brand faithful. I buy whatever suits my needs most and switch between brands when needed. These ryzen chips are great value for money and do a lot of things better and for less money than the Intel chips do. I've switched between the red and blue team many times in the past until it got a bit one sided over the last 7 years or so. It's great now there's competition like you said. They just need to bring that to the gpu sector now to balance that market as that's definately in Nvidias favour.

vmistery

Not really, you just came across as anti AMD. I agree they all have vulns. I just get miffed when people are not balanced which is how I interpreted your comments. Fact is we need competition in the market so the anti AMD brigade frustrates me.

Could always get a different cooler no? I mean you don't even have to overclock it to that degree if you don't need or want to. Still a great buy.

kaisersolo

the cooler has been nerfed from the 1600 which actually had the beefier spire cooler. don't expect to OC above the boost speed 3.9 with the stealth 65w tdp cooler.

TehJumpingJawa

Haha, nah I've never worked for CEX. I just think that dismissing them based upon some preconceived notions of quality is a mistake. This is HUKD after all, we're here to hunt down bargains without prejudice of store clientele, or personal hygiene (cheeky)

McTabish

... and which store do you work in?? ;) it's a good point though. Their two year guarantee policy is pretty good to be fair.

TehJumpingJawa

I agree there's definitely a lack of diligence in their product identification and testing procedure (for certain item types), but this can be made to work to your advantage. (undervaluing due to misidentification) Moreover if it doesn't work, or isn't as advertised (their strict grading definitions work in your favour in this instance), simply send it back. There's absolutely no risk.

The overclockers price for the 2700x (there isn't a 2800x being released) is £299.99 - given that it includes a cooler and the 1800x doesn't I actually don't think the 1800x above is value.

Overclockers have posted their ryzen 2 prices and the 2600x is £209.99 from them. Now it does contain a cooler bit its still £35 more than the 1600x and cooler I bought yesterday.

r200ti

compared to other AMD chips and the upcoming 2xxx yes you can argue value, but compared to intel, or what we had 18 months ago. 16 threads and 4ghz for this price? Its still an incredible bargain

eek

Yep which is why I went for a 1600x at £149 yesterday. I don't see the additional expense at the moment being worth the additional cores and speed.

Oneday77

10-20% performance increase I more than Intel has been pushing out for a few years. Excluding Sandybridge and 8 series core bumps. Price wise I agree to a degree but additional performance is always a diminishing return.

Gentle_Giant

Thanks, it sounds like they have made their returns policy a lot better since my last experience. I was returning a DVD player that basically started to melt after 30 minutes of use; even though it had only been delivered that day, they insisted it would have to be sent for testing, and that the testing would take SEVEN WEEKS MINIMUM, before I could have a refund or replacement. This was of course, before the DSR came into law.

TehJumpingJawa

- SLI capable - Better power delivery, so when paired with a good cooler, will be able to overvolt higher for absolute max overclock. For most, the answer is no.

There's some rampant fanboysm on this community. I can't understand why people like the custodians of the absolute truths "X activity can only be done the way I say", "this product is useless [just because it wasn't made by a brand i like]", "you should spend your money the way I would, the only way, otherwise you're a fool!", or the ones that preach the value of a 20% saving for a 5% performance deficit in one thread, only to argue with everybody that the same performance is totally not worth the saving if a brand they don't like is involved, would spend their time on a DEALS website of all places.

Tim1292

The 2200G is equivalent in performance to a 6600K at stock speeds. The 6600K at launch did fine with GPUs like the GTX 980 and R9 390X, there's no way a 2200G would bottleneck a 1050Ti which is not even at GTX 970 performance. You will have to get to a GTX 1070/Vega 56 or GTX 1080/Vega 64 territory for this to become a bottleneck. Also the term bottleneck is subjective, if you are gaming on a 60Hz monitor or TV, this won't be a bottleneck. If you game on a 144Hz monitor then of course this will not cut it and neither will any other CPU available around this price.

Kosmonaut

I agree with all you said, don't get me wrong. But the Ryzen 2200G is poor in both cpu and gpu. That is why I do not see it in a ATX build. If on a low budget, I would suggest USED i5-4690k + GTX 770 or NEW i3-8100 + GTX 1050ti, or a mix of them. Both combos are way better fit for all purposes, rather than building upon Ryzen 2200G imo. Many people say 'buy now 2200G now, and upgrade gpu later'. While this is ok, you will end up with an expensive and mediocre PC in the end. Just a buy a decent cpu + gpu from the beginning, and save money later. Because anything higher than 1050ti on a Ryzen 2200G will be bottlenecked by this cpu. Not to mention you need expensive RAM to pair with the 2200G to be able to play games.

GAVINLEWISHUKD

Buying a console does not replace a PC. General things like using Excel, email, video editing, online banking, even opening a PDF are not for consoles. If you could boot into windows on an Xbox then yes that would be a choice. Why if you are building a PC does it have to be about gaming? Its not what I can afford (I'm sure both you and I could afford a Titan if we wanted?) but we don't. I might have an hour or two on a rainy Sunday and want to play a retro game or maybe an hour on dota2. Yes I might have to play it at 720p or 900p. But it's smooth and enjoyable. As are many older games. This is not the case with HD630 graphics. I'm not sure on why you deem it necessary that because it's an APU you must have an ITX board and case. But if I built a non gaming pc with say a i3-8100 (the main competitor) it can go in a normal PC case? If we called the APU just an AMD CPU with better onboard graphics than Intel offers can we then put it in a normal PC case?

Kosmonaut

Sorry, but if you cannot afford to pay £100 on a gaming card, you should buy a console. APUs are not for gaming. 720p @ 30-40fps cannot be called gaming. Not in 2018. Maybe in 2003. APUs are great choices for HTPC with occasional playing casual or old games. Building a ATX tower around an APU is non sense.

I read your launch propaganda article. Funny, you act as this isn't just launch propaganda and make assumptions about CCX being improved just because the word 'lower memory latency' was used. Being forced to disable half of your CPU so you can 'play games' is something people *absolutely care about*. Threadripper was meant to play games, stream, and do many things. If you take away the core functionality of the CPU, to have tons of cores and threads, you are basically offering an awful product solution. You are also stating that amd 'fixed this'. I don't believe you. Prove it.

CPU Passmark scores based on cost/performance are absolutely awful way to compare chips. It has the best 'price to performance' leaders as the AMD FX 9590, the AMDAthlon X4 950 and the AMD Athlon X4 760k quad core. Go on, recommend those chips to someone, I will laugh. Those theoretical tests have a major problem, they don't represent real world performance. Have a look here. https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Intel/Core_i5_8400/18.html

Hmmm, I think I would buy one of these chips at £140 and put it in a draw, babylon. My holdout stalwart mate just had to give away a 2500K rig cos,well it was minimum stuttering and generally showing its age even at 4.2 gig.(with that 280x) because he's a plonker and sometimes reflex buys spanking new games. I'm not having a dig,but you wont see this price again in a hurry. It will stay higher if ram goes down as well.

joe_shmoe

Yes, you shouldnt have any issues getting ram to run at at least 3000 with the 1600,which is where the sweet spot is anyway for gaming . .. but ram is so o/priced now it depends what mrs royo gonna use it for.And how much ram_ if its for 60 hz gaming i would go for any gskill 2400 /2666 kit,what ever is cheapest (you can 'usually' get the next bin up overclocking it later but obviously nothing is set in stone) So if you just want it to run that 2400 2x4 gig kit will run as a place holder. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/cLkwrH/gskill-memory-f42400c15d8grr but i am sure you know all this. short answer; up to 3000 is o.k. on a 1600.

Yow didnt bother reading that then, no? The improved cas latency across the board,particularly L2, the improved external latency for ccx etc. I am reading 8% improvement in multithreaded workloads but there were long words in it,you might not have stayed awake.. Anyway, This latency issue was made practically 'mute' in gaming with some bios alterations and optimisations on new games.6 months ago. Which will improve further with time.Maybe you didnt keep up? It is only an issue for 'YOU'. On everything else,as stated,nobody gives a hoot because of price to performance ratio,but you just cant help bringing up old news or picking bits that suit. Just as you did about threadripper only using half the cores for games (so its now only an 8 core 16 thread quad channel 1800X for gaming?Nobody cares? Like anybody would give a toss? Do you have anything other than launch propoganda? bore off, you are clinging onto straws that went over the falls months ago. "You know, I have a spine. If someone wants to make something up or tell a porky pie, I'll be here to shoot it down." "Also, Intel's upgrade path included 6 cores before Ryzen was released, so shrug, it was inevitable" . Nuff said. Ignored flamewar Troll.

Considering the new Ryzen refresh, then I dont think this is significant enough a drop. they have been as low as £135. In the US they have been down to $130. I would wait for those levels as they clear old stick or get the new one.

was 180 i think from memory

very good price, i remember when scan had a misprice on there 1800x. Unfortunately they cancelled all orders but i'm sure it was below 200pounds which would have been unreal value.

Fair enough. I bought an R7 1700 from ebuyer when they mispriced them one weekend. I paid £206. They tried to wriggle out of the sale but I raised a dispute through the independent online dispute resolution service and ebuyer backed down the same day. Fantastic CPU. Overclocked to 3.7Ghz using Auto voltage (upto 1.3V max) on the stock Wraith Spire RGB Cooler. Highly recommended.

I have a 1700 and very happy with it. I got a friend who got the 1600x because he didn't want to manually overclock and he has had no issues either.
