    Anyone feel CPU [AT] benchmarks should include gaming and streaming since multi core cpu's are out?

    As a person that just got a brand new ryzen7 system and lingering if coffee lake would have been the better path for gaming and streaming csgo,pubg, etc , I feel there simply isn't enough data out there for this topic. I was on the fence between 7700k and the ryzen 7, 99% of the time the 7700k...

    The Ryzen vs Coffee Lake choice.

    It seems like these are the choice CPUs today, and they are VERY competitive on a number of factors, and there are big threads on each, where the Ryzen vs Coffee Lake discussion keep springing up and getting shut down as "off topic". So why haven't we had a direct Ryzen vs Coffee Lake...

    Severely CPU overhead of GTX1080Ti with RYZEN CPUs in DX-12 ??

    Let me tell you a secret, VEGA 64 LC is faster than GTX1080Ti ...... :p While I was reading Coffeelake reviews I bumped in to Hardwareunboxed Core i7 8700K review. They used both the GTX1080Ti and Vega 64 LC and what their results show is severely CPU overhead with RYZEN CPUs on the...

    Why TDP mismatch between Skylake-X and Ryzen 5

    How is it possible that the stock i7-7800X and Ryzen 5 1600X have the same cores, threads, base and boost clocks but the former has a TDP of 140W and the latter only 95W? That is a massive difference.

    Time to Ryzen from 2012

    Looking to upgrade my current 2012 PC hardware. My OC on the computer burnt out pins on the CPU (still works though!), but I cannot OC anymore. Basically, my 3570K is a 3570; multiplier tops out to 38 in BIOS, but never goes above 3.6 GHz anyways. Looking for general recommendations for the...

    Which Ram for Asus - PRIME B350-PLUS?

    Hey guys, I can finally build a PC and I decided for Ryzen. Man is it complicated.. I can't decide which RAM I should choose. I heard 3000 MHz is important with Ryzen. Does it affect gaming? Some say yes, while others say no. And which one should I choose? The cheapest options for me (in...

    Ryzen: if can't run full (3200MHz) speed, is DDR4-3000 CL15 faster than DDR4-3200CL16 b/c of the CL?

    With Ryzen, if for whatever reason you can't run your RAM at max (3200MHz) speed, would it actually be better to buy DDR4-3000 CL15 than DDR4-3200 CL16, because both would be running at 2933MHz or less, but the DDR4-3000 CL15 would be running at CL15 while the DDR4-3200 CL16 would be running at...

    Samsung 960 PRO m.2 NVMe and CPU spikes

    Gigabyte Gaming 3 Motherboard does not boot.

    First of all my first set of RAM was not working. So I got a new one after RMA. This new memory was working fine and all 16gb was detected in BIOS and CPUZ. But windows shown 8GB of the 16GB was hardware reserved. I tried most of the ways mentioned in forums to remove that hardware reservation...

    Max RAM speed with Ryzen without entering overclock mode?

    Definitely a noob question. What RAM speed can you get with Ryzen without entering overclock mode? Suppose you have 3200MHz/CL16 -rated RAM (single-rank, 2 DIMMS). Is anything above 2133 MHz going to involve being in overclock mode, thus disabling Precision Boost and XFR? Or is 2667 MHz (the...

    Does Ryzen potentially "kill" the unofficial consumer Xeon DIY PC builds?

    I've recently been following all the historical adulation and love for Xeon CPUs that could directly fit consumer boards (LGA 1366 or 2011) or the more recent ones that could easily overclock via BLCK (LGA 1151 on C232 chipsets), especially the E3 series of quad-code hyperthreading CPUs.

    Draw Call Performance In Fallout 4

    Riding on the back of my previous thread, where users ran an old instancing demo to investigate AMD's draw call performance, I'm extremely curious as to where Ryzen falls in a "modern" game; lots of draw calls, lots of background processing, and huge draw distances. The reason why, is that all...

    Lessons Learned: Ryzen Launch

    Ryzen Owners : Does 1700 come with Thermal Paste Applied on Cooler?

    Hi Ryzen Owners : I've a question put to me by an acquaintance, about whether Ryzen 1700 comes with thermal paste pre-applied. Given that it comes with the CPU Cooler (wraith) I'm guessing the answer is YES. But rather than guess, I'd love to confirm with new owners of the CPU - Is there...

    Ryzen-A Fail for Gamers?

    Many have expressed amazement on just how AMD was able to catch up to Intel with Ryzen, especially with the 1800X, in the computing and productivity sectors. However, from a purely gamer's perspective, it is almost impossible to miss the fact that 1800X trails Intel's 7700K slightly to...
