Kube The Noob says:

What’s more future proof between the 8700k and the 2700x? I’m building a high end system that I hope lasts me a long time so future proof-ness is a priority

AmpEdition says:

If you have the 2600x in mind I wouldn’t bother, spend 20$ more and buy the 1800x

Jersey Piney says:

Just bought the 2700x yesterday for $270 at microcenter and it was the best damn decision I’ve ever made. Basically a steal.

KillChillSniping says:

Gonna upgrade from a pentium g4620 to a 2600x. So stoked

Guillaume ml says:

On newegg the 1800x coupled with a cpu cooler is the same price as the new 2700x with stock cooler. What should I go for?

ocelotl213 says:

So definite upgrade to 2600x or 2700x from a 1600… time to save up

Stephen McAllister says:

waiting for 7nm chips to come out. still using 22nm and my pc runs just fine.

omnivorace says:

Hello, what choice for music production on computer ? Thanks a lot !

Pablo Bonaventura says:

hi, my english is bad, please chassis is? ( gabinete modelo marca )

Big Tough says:

I have three monitors connected to my PC, I game on one, I Netflix/Crunchyroll on the other, and I have 15 tabs open on the other. Can you run a bench with all that going at the same time?

Mauro Vaz Salbé Junior says:

And 4K tests? Fail review.

eVoconKO16 eVOconKO16 says:

1600x or 2600x for a gtx 1070ti ?

N Gauge England -Synthematix- says:

wear you amd badge with pride, knowing amd have made more progress in 12 months than intel have in 8 years. also take note the 2700x is NOT vunerable to spectre or meltdown.

Hector Herrera says:

Paul knows his stuff!

hababacon says:

I picked up the 2600X after being CPU limited with Intel’s 6600K. I got my mom the 2600 after the price dropped to $165 instead of $200. Overall I’m impressed with with Zen plus. It’s about as fast as Intel 6700K or 7600 non K processors in gaming. It’s faster than Intel’s 5900K series processors, and 6800K series at a fraction of the cost. While yes Cofee Lake smokes Ryzen in gaming performance, it’s still within 7% on average.

John Kesl says:

I have a question regarding the power draw. Does the power draw include the power draw from the cpu attached cooler or is it 380w CPU alone for the 2700x at max draw? thank you much.

mrak408 says:

That case in the beginning looks like if it was on something.

Crashbanksbuysilver says:

I wish the people who maintain Overwatch would make it so the FPS can go higher than 300, I know I can tell the difference. 600 FPS would be perfect.

Plenus says:

Got myself a 1800X for 999 BRL.f

Karl Marx says:

Just buy the 1800x for 240 bucks on Amazon. The Mobos are also not as expensive. The only issue is dealing with the whole memory ordeal.

John Timperley says:

Please compare thread ripper in the future.

Ricky D says:

Im ordering my new pc i do gaming/streaming. I cant decide if i should go 8600k with 1080ti or 8700k with regular 1080

Abraham L says:

Paul can I go with the MSI X370 Gaming M7 ACK for my Ryzen 2600X, rather than the X470 M7 AC? I would save around $40 dollars and get a few extra ports. I know the newer board will give me a little better performance but I don’t think I will do any overclocking until I feel more comfortable with it… i am very conflicted right now!

Gino Guillermo says:

Need help please! Between the Intel i5 (Acer Swift3 or Dell XPS13) vs AMD Ryzen 5 (the one with Ryzen 8 Mobile GPU chip on the HP Envy x360) which one u think actually is better in heat and fan noise?

Addam Robin says:

Glad I’m not one of those that jumped on the Ryzen bandwagon for their gaming PC

advitam ceylati says:

As a french guy, all I hear now is “twenty seven hundred aix” :’)
Thanks a lot for the video!

DSM Dallas says:

Tomb Raider scores?: You mean Average and Max? no way your min is 120s
Im getting 120 average with 167 max and 36 min on Geothermal Valley same settings.

Dyson Lewis says:

Remember Ryzen is going to better in new games that will start using 12-16 threads (if you all them juicy threads)

Paul V says:

I’m still rocking my fx 8350 cpu. It’s showing it’s age but I can still play todays games on it. Including BF5 open beta.

DSM DALLAS 2 says:

I keep seeing more YouTubers running away from AMD and back to Intel. Something about compatibility with video processing issues and 3rd party software support? Can you reply or make a video about this? Thank you.

OptimisticPessimist says:

How low do the clocks go at idle?

Aaron Mayhew says:

Finally… a review of the 2700x vs 8700k where the ryzen is using 3200 ddr4… seems like everyone else is using 2600….

Would like to see the 8600k added to your charts tho!!!

Moslin says:

Terrible time to buy a new cpu/motherboard when we are approaching the dawn of the Intel 9th gen final refresh of their 14nm process which will include an 8 core i7 and turbo frequencies of 5 Ghz and next year Ryzen 7nm.

Richard Smith says:

Paul, mind correcting your video? You cannot have more than 144 fps in PubG, ever. The game engine doesn’t go higher than that, yet your graph says you got 154 on intel. Something is seriously wrong there…

Dapper Dan says:

Liked and subscribed great info thanks for sharing

Adrian W1888 says:

#AMDRyzenCPU Best PC gameing CPU in the World !!!

Fluffy McNuggies says:

I just went with the 2600. A lot cheaper and I’m too stupid to overclock much.

Rachel P says:

This is my build for streaming fortnite and rocket league. Would you upgrade to a 2700x?
