AMD vs INTEL

Hey there,
i want to buy a new pc for gaming and i dont know what cpu i should choose. I already did a research and i think im going or for Intel I5 7600K or AMD R5 1600.

Thanks for any help.

  2. Well no it should be between the new 6 core i5 8400 & the ryzen 1600 anyway.
    I honestly don't think the 7600k is worth considering at all now.

    So, you think the new generation is worth it ?

    Apart from the older hyper threaded pentiums the new 8400 is the best price to performance ratio CPU Intel have ever put on the market.
    That goes back as far as I can remember.

    To all intents & purposes its pushing close to the same performance as a stock i7 7700k

    I don't like the fact Intel have pushed an intermediate socket out that is likely to only support 1 and a half generation of chips but that performance differential is impossible to ignore.

    The ryzen is still a a viable alternative if you have a penchant for supporting amd , are running a mid range GPU & are unlikely to be bothered with a 100htz+ monitor

  5. I agree with madmatt30 it should be between the i5-8400 (or even 8600K) and the Ryzen 5 1600. If just gaming Intel is the clear winner in performance, but if you ever want to stream and game then Ryzen 5 1600 could be better. Though I can't seem to find a streaming comparison of Ryzen 5 and Core i5-8xxx.

  6. The problem for the Core i5-8400 is Z370 is your only option. That means CPU + motherboard combo starts at $310, where the Ryzen 5 1600 + B350 starts at $250. And that's with OC support, you could drop it a bit lower with A320.

    Intel is basically enforcing what used to be a misconfiguration, combining a cheaper locked CPU with a more expensive unlocked chipset.

  7. It depends on what monitor you are using, if You have gsync monitor 144+hz and want to play at high fps you would benefit from an i5/i7 8th gen cpu (probably 8600k/8700k) if You have a 60/75hz monitor i would recomend a r5 1600 for its price pero core/thread, you would see no benefit paying premium for Intel platform in normal fps gaming.
