Is anybody else excited about the release of the AMD RYZEN series CPU? I know I am!http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2017/2/22/14698284/amd-ryzen-7-desktop-processor-intel-competitor

The Top of the line Ryzen CPU is 499.00 compared to Intel at 1000.00 - yep - will definitely be buying one after my income tax refund comes in-

So, the Ryzen has officially been released today.  Most of the usual tech sites have now benchmarked them.  What are your thoughts?  Has it lived up to expectations, or are you disappointed by the gaming results?

Will have to take a look at the results-

Gaming results can be explained on many things. Like Windows scheduler, crappy games etc. We'll likely see fix soon.

 

Outside pure gaming, Ryzen is excellent.

Having read the results out there so far, for a machine doing lots of encoding, rendering, heavy video editing and that type of thing, it's very good news indeed as even the $329 R7 1700 trounces the competition at that price point in those tasks (and genuinely is within touching distance of what a $1000 Intel chip can do).  I'm also impressed with the low power draw.  But the gaming results suggest something needs more optimisation.  They weren't bad as such (major improvement on the old FX results), but perhaps enough to cause serious gamers to have second thoughts.

Based on the majority of the 1920x1080 gaming results (save for Ashes of Singularity, which scaled well above 4 cores), it appears Intel can take it's sweet time releasing the 7730, or whatever little 100 MHz clock speed jump was waiting in the wings....

 

(Performance overall, and especially multitasking/multithreaded however, was much improved over previous generations, and this processor should indeed make Intel at least semi-honest regarding pricing strategy/ practices on it's 6/8/10 core variants, now that it has competition.)

A review at Pauls Hardware/Youtube :  .

 

Looks as though the 1800X-based system system draws 20 more watts than a 7700K, and gives about 10-12% less framerates at 1080P; naturally, at 4k, the differences are much less noticeable, if at all.

Hardware Canucks has quite the quick and dirty handful of both synthetic and gaming benchmarks....

 

(So much for the 'AMD's 1800X will sip power and run much cooler compared to 7700K!' claims, too!)

 

 

(Ryzen had some impressive Handbrake numbers, though, I must admit!)

Regardless of whether they are good for gaming or not, the improvements AMD have done are much higher than anything Intel has done recently. Now, we should start seeing some real innovation, not some useless stuff like Kaby Lake which barely has any improvement over Skylake. If anything, I think the R7's were over-hyped. People were thinking they were going to smash Intel's CPU's. They did but not in the way everyone wanted it to. A lot of people were expecting it to get the best frame rates in every game, which I knew from the point at which I saw the clock speeds, wouldn't be case. As so many of us have said, the R7's aren't meant for gaming, as the 6900K isn't as well, and you should get something like an i5/i7 for now http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-7700K-vs-Intel-Core-i7-6900K/3647vs3605.

Kaby Lake is just renamed Skylake, nothing else. Well, perhaps different ID Strings and so on that mean only Kaby Lake support Optane etc. Architecturally 100% same and manufacturing process is also same.

 

I just don't understand those who thought Ryzen 7s is going to be fast on pure gaming. As i7-6900K cannot beat 7700K on pure gaming, that should have been very clear.

For anyone having doubts over Ryzen dont as the R5 series is coming soon plus performance issues will be fixed with BIOS updates.

I remember skylake having similar issues.

To me ,it's really more about the cost. 1,000.00 for the Intel vs. 500.00 for the Ryzen 1800. I don't know about you,but 500 bucks is a lot of money just to have a little gaming advantage-
