    Glad to see another person wasting money to get an i7 to play at 1080p.
    Cause thats the only time Intel is faster.

    At 1440p and higher, AMD is on par/faster, while also providing better multi thread performance AND is cheaper.

    So unless you're running decade old software that needs ST, getting the cheaper ryzen and spending the difference on a faster gpu will see bigger gains than going intel.
    Not of course if you drink the blue coolaid..

    Wait wait wait... the Infinity Fabric doesn't run at effective RAM speed but at the base speed? Wat? AMD y u do dis to me? Did it really have to be designed to be tied to base RAM speed? There had to be a way around it.

    Bah, I was going to wait at least until the 2nd generation Ryzen chips anyway. Then again I'm so insanely limited by GPU resources at 1440p that I might wait until the 3rd generation.
