    Guys, the 2700X is BEASTLY! Whos with me? This 2700X is truly impressive!

    Passing the 8700K in R15 by 30%.

    I mean sure, I'm a intel fan and all. But, sometimes you just got to get off the pot?

    Nah, an 8700K at 5GHz is still a more well-rounded performer. Sure the 2700X beats it in productivity apps, but we all knew that and it was the case with Zen 1 as well.

    For now at least. Intel are starting to push game developers to optimise their engines for more threads rather than sheer clock speed and IPC. In the next few years the gap between Intel and AMD will start closing up from games being optimised better. I'm certain Intel are planning 8 core CPUs as well within the next year or two.

    Considering that CPUs matter less and less for gaming, The ryzen smacks the intel CPU.

    Intel is inferior to ryzen in almost anything. Ryzen CPU's are better for producitivty, are cheaper, more future proof and run much cooler. Once DX 12 and Vulkan are mainstream, in terms of gaming there will be no difference betweem a low I5 and a high end I7.let alone 8700K and ryzen.

    (even tho currently the 2nd zen smacks the intel in terms of gaming lol)

    EDIT:
    Well, apparently ryzen does now even smack intel in terms of gaming and IPC. Guess there is no reason to go for intel anymore.

    It’s incredible! Whenever threadripper 2950X comes out, it should be fun to watch.

    The 1700X could never fully grasp my interest for some reason. The 2700X has changed that.

    I don’t think there will be a 2800X.

    Sure... And i7-8700K wasn’t even oc’d... https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/Ryzen_7_2700X/20.html
    Compared with a stock clocked 6 core i7-8700K (33% less cores).

    Zen+ certainly does not smack Intel in terms of gaming. Intel is still king for high refresh date gaming.

    The AnandTech review is utter BS (2700X performs 200% faster than 1800X in Rocket League, really?). They're clearly shilling Zen+ seeing as how it destroys Zen and CFL in that review, and their gaming numbers especially are different than every other reviewer out there. CFL power consumption magically increased by 40% compared to their initial CFL review as well.

    I've blacklisted AnandTech because of this article as they're no longer a trustworthy news source. How the mighty have fallen. Anand be rolling over in his grave.

    Anandtech's review isn't the only one showing the 2700x vs 8700K. Here's an updated selection of benchmark results with the new AMD Ryzen 2700x vs. the 8700K:

    AMD Ryzen 7 2700X outpaces the Intel Core i7-8700K in more ways than one in first benchmarks

    "The AMD Ryzen 2700X was given a test drive ahead of its official announcement and the CPU has managed to put up an impressive show. The Ryzen 2700X has managed to beat or come in close proximity to the Intel Core i7-8700K in gaming benchmarks and was absolutely stellar in multi-threaded performance.

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-R...ys-than-one-in-first-benchmarks.296674.0.html

    There are a many pages of print reviews and video reviews being posted here comparing Ryzen 2 vs Ryzen 1 vs Intel CPU's under many configurations, applications, and gaming, it's just getting started :)

    AMD's Ryzen CPU's (Ryzen/TR/Epyc) & Vega/Polaris GPU's

    Intel pushing game developers to improve gaming multi-core support will also benefit and uplift AMD 8 core, 16 core, and 32 core CPU's - shipping now and shipping in the future. :)

    In AT's review, Zen+ beats CFL in every single gaming test including GPU-bound and single-thread reliant titles and including such anomalies as tripling Zen 1 performance in Rocket League. The Zen 1 and CFL numbers are fine, but anyone with a rational mind can see that the Zen+ numbers are an anomaly.
