I'm by no means a massive streamer haha! But I try to keep people happy from the start I ended up grabbing the 7820X today. A dedicated streaming PC is something I've been wondering about but I'd like to try doing it with one machine first if I can. Just less things to worry about (+ then I can sell my 3770k rig to get some money back). Will just have to test and see what is best

Thanks for the replies and input! Here's to hoping it works out ok

Who was this reviewer? Interested in seeing this review myself now

If you are gaming at 1440P or above then Ryzen makes sense as the gaming performance in the majority of things is on par with a 7700K and in some instances better, In some games at 1080P Ryzen also surpasses a 7700K but you need high speed memory for this and the workload type situations is up there with X99/X299.

Much better value for money than Intel AND you can simply replace the chip with Zen2 when AMD bring it out and reuse your motherboard, Something Intel generally don't do.

Cast aside the rhetoric, Dicehunter.
I can tell you form experience having upgraded from a top end 6700k/msi z170 titanium to 7800x/ msi x299 gaming 7 thats its made a discernible difference to minumum frame rates. I`m getting a constant butterly smoooth 80-85 fps with no dips on rainbow six at 3440 x 1440p. With my 6700k I would get dips to 45 fps.
A nice 20-50% even distribution amongst 6 cores.

What rhetoric ? Performance is performance, I don't care if it's team red, Green or blue, I go for numbers not brands when it comes to CPU's.

The 1800X has been shown to equal a 6900K in gaming, that alone made it an attractive proposition to me not even mentioning the multi core performance for rendering etc...

Epic Facepalm.........

The reason CPU's are benchmarked at such a low resolution is so that the GPU is pretty much taken out of the equation, As you go higher in resolution the CPU becomes less of the "bottleneck" so to say, And more of the workload is put on the GPU, That's why you can pair a 1080 Ti, 4K monitor and a non Hyperthreaded quad core like an R3-1200 and see roughly the same results had you paired that setup with a 10 core when running games at 4K, For example, A 6950X and R3-1200, Both running games at 4K, The performance is pretty close at that resolution -

Yes I know its engineered to bottleneck CPU but this begs the question in the real world with high end res/ cards does it really make any difference?
All Im saying is the x299 chipset is a solid choice for gaming as far as im concerned.

No one is saying that the X299 chipset wouldn't be good for gaming

OP asked a question and I provided a viable alternate choice, Simplez, Mountain out of a molehill
