    Agreed. What makes it even sillier is the fact that the guy didn't like the fact that it made the Intel cpus look bad so he rewrote it specifically to make the Ryzens appear slower in the comparison...;) Hopefully, people catch a glimmer of how benchmarks can be used--and often are--to mislead. He's certainly not alone in playing favorites with his benchmarks, though. Benchmarks are very much like election polls--rarely accurate, and exist primarily to shape and form opinions and biases.

    You can buy 4GB RX-480's right now for ~$200 or <. I've got the same CPU that you do right now--getting Ryzen a little later--and an AoC 2560x1440 LCD and that's the resolution I use for gaming. At that resolution the cpu barely makes a difference, but the GPU is everything. 1080P is strictly entry-level these days. I'm very happy with my RX-480 8GB that I bought for ~$230. But even if you stay at 1080 for awhile, I'd recommend you spend your money on your GPU first--R7 is also entry-level, imo. You will see a big improvement in performance with a better GPU. Just my two cents...;)

    If you can find an available RX 480 4GB, then you have the best luck ever! Right now they're going upwards of $500 or so thanks to the whole mining craze.

    @ vbetts... was going to say that: RX 480 4GB for $200!!!... where!?!?!? Oh well, nowhere :(

    Even here in Serbia (Radeon, mostly RX 470 and up) GPU stocks are empty, not a single importer or retailer have them on stock for more than a week, not a single RX 470, 480, 570 or 580. Manic miner craze, as you said...

    i know, i was interested on a RX470/480 and FreeSync monitor but i bought this monitor by oportunity and is´nt FreeSync or over 60hertz at max res. and i´ll sell my R7-260X at end of month and i don´t want to spend much more and im not interested going over 1080p, i know that i can get 60fps with RX460/560 using ultra settings except for shadows and other settings i did´nt like (i don´t use HBAO+ or Motion Blur in some games) :infinity:

    thanks however

    This CPU will probably be my wife's upgrade if her PC ever kicks the bucket, very good value for the price.

    I thought there were Video cards that were geared towards mining. I remember reading something about it right here on Guru3d. Back during the r9 290/X era.

    Back on topic
    This CPU could be used as a budget alternative to an i7 of the same 4C/8T specs.

    Anyway it's dead product here because of pricing ... R5 1500x is just 15-20$ more expensive , it's no brainer

    That's good catch. here difference is ~ $15 for:
    8 vs. 16GB L3 cache &
    Wraith Stealth vs. Wraith Spire cooler.

    But that's the trick here many will notice:
    Cache size difference for 4C/8T matters little.
    1400 can easily OC to 1500X clocks.
    But it would need better cooling and that costs $, probably more than $15 and stock cooler gets wasted. But if someone already has compatible cooler or intends to get something special anyway, then 1400 is better choice than 1500X.

    You are getting it wrong , You can't compare 1500X to 1400, 1500x is much faster exactly because of the cache, 1500x is like a younger brother in the family , while 1400 is CRIPLED brother ...
    You can check many tests , no normal person would pick 1400 over 1500x if they plan to play 1080p, and they do on budget procesor. 1500x can easly compete with i5 7600 even it is much cheaper :)

    lucky one, in here it's 2nd hand RX470 4g at this price, and if you want new all you get approching is RX560, RX460 4g at 189...

    also new RX480 RX580 are unaviable right now due to mining (see previous news).

    (maybe that's the reason of NVidia's omnipresence... Please AMD use the price you do in other EU country :cry:)

    With CPU-Z it's nearly twice as fast as 2600K, but in most other tests it's on pair or slower than 2600K.


    Wonder to see some power consumption comparisons. Especially to 2600K to see AMD progress in past 6,5 years.
