Should I buy Ryzen 1700? It's very appealing to me. Any reasons why I should avoid it?
>>59497493wait for motherboard vendors to get their shit togethert. 1700X owner
>>59497499seriously, what the fuck is going on with mobo oems?
>>59497499Are there still problems with B350 boards? It's been over 2 weeks, what the hell.
>>59497493not reason CPU is finebut if you can wait wait for revision boardsthough I run rav A p67 board since 2011, you never know may get unlucky
>>59497522why would anyone even buy some mid tier mobo when x370 is just better?
>>59497522>still problems with B350 boards?pretty sure that's just asus
>>59497538how is it better? unless you go 200+ range it's same board as b350 but without SLi and 4 less sata prots
>>59497538That is just, bollocks. Only thing that x370 does better is multiGPU
>>59497538>X370 for a 1700If I wanted to break my wallet, buy an extra graphics card for SLI, and get an 1800X, sure. B350 is just as good, can overclock but not a primary factor imo.
>>59497493new chips in a couple weeks, might be better at overclocking or at least lower prices of some stuff.
>>59497604Don't get your hopes up, they look like cut down versions of Ryzen 7 and nothing else.
>>59497493Pretty decent performance over all, really impressive given the low power draw.Get a decent memory kit, and set the Windows power plan to high performance, if you're you're using Windows that is.>>59497499There will apparently be a new wave of BIOS updates coming out sometime in the near future that iron out the remaining bugs, but no one knows exactly when that is.>>59497522I've got an ASUS Prime B350 Plus.Don't buy one of those no matter what.
>>59497493What Intel shills refuse to talk about is the minimum fps performance. It is true that Ryzen has lower average FPS but it has much higher minimum FPS than Intel's counterparts. Making the gaming experience much smoother with less stutter. So I will say that Ryzen is a pretty solid CPU for the price.
>>59497571more phases and better ones too
>>59497493Doesn't support Windows 7
>>59497493I think it's one of the best valued CPUs in quite a while given how you can OC it to 1800x levels. Sure wish they clocked higher, however. Someone please calm my autism before I buy the 1800x, I know it's not worth it, but I've had terrible luck with the silicon lottery.
>>59500665lolDo you even know what you typed? Or are you re typing what you seen on /g/?
Question, how big are Zen CPUs? Will their 4core variant be one core complex or just even more battered 8core failures?
>>59499610Retard here, if 3.0 is backwards compatible with 2.0 why wouldn't they just use all 3.0 ports instead of having 'legacy' 2.0 ports?
>>59497538>spending more money on the bridge rather than the two cities
>>59500712the smallest Zen chips are dual CCX with cores turned off. this was confirmed last week.this means that the 4 core and 6 core parts are 2+2 and 3+3 respectively. it would have been nice to see some high clocking single CCX chips but apparently AMD doesn't want to bother or doesn't think it's worth having them fabbed.I'm guessing the APUs will be single CCX + iGPU though
>doesn't have an intel logoBad goy, BAD GOY.
>>59500910>x265 encoding>FPSSomeone please enlighten me, what the fuck am I reading?
>>59500972Basically processors are doing HEVC video encoding which is 50% more efficient than H264 video (ie better quality at the same file size or same quality at half the file size).The graph shows the R7 1700 overclocked to 4GHz with the stock cooler having about the same performance as the i7-5960X which is batfuck insane conaidering the 1700 is $320 and the i7-5960X is $1,000+.Basically there is no logical reason to buy desktop intel processors anymore.
>>59501003Nigga I know all of that, what I mean is what the fuck does the HEVC encoder have anything to do with FPS? The fuck are they measuring?
>>59500972Dude it's just how many frames from the video are encoded per second.
>>59500780legacy 2.0 ports are still cheaper... and believe it or not, but 3.0 -> 2.0 backwards can be buggy. i've run into a few occasions where i couldn't boot off a usb 2.0 drive on a usb 3.0 port, even though it saw it just fine. would only boot fine in a usb 2.0 port. but another 2.0 drive was able to boot just fine in the same usb 3.0 port.
>>59501013>Nigga I know all of that, what I mean is what the fuck does the HEVC encoder have anything to do with FPS? The fuck are they measuring?Oh sorry I forgot to mention that. Well that pic is from encoding tests done on the same 1080p video file across different CPUs showing their performance. Higher FPS = shorter encoding times.
>>59500807>have a shitty 1-lane bridge that's congested 24/7
>>59501028>>59501047Fuck, I will just kill myself now. All of the gaymen benchmarks have really fucked my head and I didn't think clearly. Thanks for the clarification.
>>59501039that's driver issues not usb controller issues m8
>>59499610I don't get it. B350 has 2 fewer PCIe lanes, and no dual PCIe slots, but it's $70 cheaper. What's the big deal with getting one? It doesn't seem like I'll be missing anything of utmost importance compared t the X370.
>>59503247only 2 sata lanes and also missing some USB
>>59503418Why is that a problem? You can easily fit an SSD and an HDD there. Sure, you can't crossfire/SLI, but most people don't do that anyway. I also don't understand when 10 USB slots will be a problem, it sounds like plenty to me.
