    Exactly, i'm on quad channel 2400Mhz, toggled xmp profile on and never came back to it.

    AMD has plenty to bring to the line on the high end. Those "reviewers" just dont want you to see how good it is. This is the power of the Fury + Ryzen 1700

    I agree but wrong

    I agree with you but we are missing the point here. RYZEN with proper RAM OC has enough performance or even greater gaming performance than a 7700k 5GHZ when RYZEN RAM is above 3400 MHZ.

    All those reviewers posting chars of RYZEN below 3200 MHZ on RAM will never show you what the CPU is capable of, I'm glad Gilbert is already working on this article as RAM OC becomes easier.

    Awesome Boss :thumbup: , looking forward to this article as it will help many users truly understand how they can squeezed more performance out of their Ryzen set ups.

    There is a lot of untapped performance to be had on Ryzen CPUs for gaming and it will get much better.

    From Core 2 Duo? I don't think you'll see much difference, to be honest. It's going to be like a sidegrade.

    He got a point though Hilbert I mean, look at this:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBf2lvfKkxA

    I can't say the numbers are or not real but wtf: not a single professional reviewer actually used an AMD GPU for testing the Ryzen platform. Wasn't Nvidia notorious for being bad with DX12 and AMD bad with DX11? Wasn't DX12 and Vulcan supposed to help improve the red team results?

    What the heck: throw crossfire RX480s if you are worried with GPU bottlenecks but do test the red team!

    Why bother, use one RX480 and just lower resolution to 720p to see if it changes anything. It is better to test CPU without encountering GPU bottleneck.

    I have no idea about Tech Epiphany, but if that video of theirs posted here has any merit, then WTF.

    Realistically, any upgrade these days is nothing more than a sidegrade.

    Here's proof:

    Any upgrade has to be done from the side! :bonk:

    Going from a Core 2 Duo to Ryzen would likely mean a new case though, so no sidegrade :3eyes:.

    Alright. I'll stop cracking jokes here at Guru3D. It was not a troll post. How could it even be such a thing? It was a pure joke since the person was talking about such a major upgrade from an ancient CPU.

    Hahaha. Well said.

    Great to see AMD and RyZen are making great strides. Long may it continue. Now come on Vega.

    I know right?
    As a consumer and tech enthusiast, I just want the truth.

    Also, it gets on my nerves the tech reviewers using the same 3 GPUs most of us could never afford plus not benching with anything from AMD to compare. At 720p and low settings you can't possibly run into GPU bottleneck with a RX480 (or a Fury). I know what they'll say: "oh, but it's old tech bla bla bla". Ya, the reviews look very biased to me now.

    Reviewers will pick the faster/fastest single card GPU solution as they do not want the GPU to be a bottleneck and thus influence the results. I pick a GTX 1080 as it is more CPU bound in 1080p and more GPU bound in 1440p. Hence a good balance of the two.
