Honestly I think I would actually be wasting my money, It has a 20% perf boost over Zen 2 at 1080P, I don't play at 1080P, I play at 3440x1440 so I'm pretty sure I'd see zero gain.

It really depends on the game. Far Cry 4 can be CPU limited at high resolutions with today's graphics cards.

Underwhelmed.

Not even so much I thought it would be better, but the fact they are now literally competing with themselves and have managed to shove up the prices.

Don't get me wrong it's impressive, but is it impressive enough in anything else other than low res gaming to really justify itself? I don't think so.

Sure, you might shave a few seconds from a render, but they are not cheap.

Also £300 for their entry level gaming CPU? yeah, too much IMO. The 10600k is cheaper (£248 as I type this).

I guess the real big impressive lift will be 5nm. I was just expecting too much out of this perhaps? IDK.

Price for the 6 core imo is to much. If they wanted to up the price, they should have talked about a 4 core model at a lower price point.

Other than price it is fairly impressive and a bigger gain than I was expecting.

So.....what happened to the number 4000? These should be called the 4000 series....not 5000...

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong here, but as far as my understanding goes, they have the 4000 series inside of laptops. So using that for desktop would be rather confusing for their customers.

So going with the 5000 series naming, makes a more of a diversity in their product line and hence less confusing.

Yep the namimg is to seperate it from laptops.

As for the pricing idk what people were expecting, they are way ahead they were always going to charge more, the price while being higher is at least giving you value when compared to the last gen.

I'm personally happy on my 1700, thou i am pleased that progress is being made and i'm sure Intel are unhappy about losing single threaded performance.

The price was always going to be higher once they beat Intel.
