Intel or AMD? CPU*

I don't have a reason really but I lean towards INTEL but I'm interested in what you guys think which one would you pick if you were going to build a new PC?

THANK YOU!

  2. It depends on what you need it to do and what your budget is, right now i would go with a R5 or R7 over what intel has now.

  3. As with most any product selection, it is all about the best product for your needs; there is no one size fits all A is always better then B option. They both have pros and cons and which one is better completely depends on the needs of the build.

    I don't see myself as a fanboy so I'll say either one. Currently the 1600 Ryzen CPU offers the best value and is so it's sort of the sweet spot for a CPU that you don't need to sell a kidney to afford. It's about 5%(more or less) better than the 7600. That's if the person is a gamer. For higher end productivity workstation the 17 or 1800(x) would be better. The 7700K also has its place. Then there's the budget. Extremely tight? Maybe the G4560. Possibly the 1500x.

    An answer isn't really possible without a person and their needs being known.

  5. I've ordered the parts and I'm building a Ryzen 5 1600X based system in the next few weeks. I went with AMD this time because I'm willing to sacrifice a little single core performance on some games which I doubt I'll miss for the monstrous multi-threaded performance which I need. I find myself doing multiple things at once -- VMs, Handbrake, open browsers, a game, etc., and my Core i5 2500K starts to shows its age. As has been mentioned before, it greatly depends on your workload. If all I did was play video games I might go with a 7500, 7600 or 7600K. If I knew that I'd add any other simultaneous workload I would go Ryzen.
