In the Geekbench single core test, the Ryzen 3rd Gen chip is 15% faster than the Zen+ processors while it's faster by 25-30% in the multi-threaded test.
AMD is firing on all cylinders. Intel and Nvidia better be watching their backs.
My next build will have to be ryzen, Intel are too expensive now.
got the 2700x never been happier . .great performance for a fraction of the cost .. it'll be my next upgrade as well
I'll be upgrading to the 3000 series from the 1700, it's been a good CPU, but I want to spring for that 12c or 16c part with all that extra IPC/frequency boost.
Same here. I left Intel about a 6 months ago, and with all the issues going on over there I won’t be back for a while. I want to upgrade my PC, but there haven’t been enough advances to justify it or the price (not paying $500 - $1,000 to go beyond a 1070). I had a 4770k, did a temporary upgrade to the Ryzen 1700x ($150 with motherboard), and I’ll be getting the 12 or 16 core Ryzen 3000.
AMD is pricing so competitively now they're doing everything they know to do in order to help us all avoid Intel and Nvidia becoming monopolies.
Going to upgrade my 2700x to 3700x. With a simple BIOS update :D Also those with x470 boards there might be a BIOS update to enable PCIe 4.0 on the first slot. I'm happy ^_^
at $499 for that 3900X, it's a good deal. just need to wait for mini-ITX X570 boards so that i can slave an nVidia GPU via Thunderbolt for rendering, and use 5700 for gaming...
Looking foward to going back to amd. Efficency, performance and a much better direction then several years ago. Way to go amd!
Rocking a 3570K since 2012 here. My next upgrade will be a 2700X when it hits $150 this year :D
Same here haha! I actually had to remove OC due to instability creeping up over the last year. The ol 3570K showing it's age now. Plus all the damn microcode security updates lately I'm sure has negatively impacted it's performance.
