Oooooo, think I'm gonna wait now. Was gonna get a 1700X but depending on the price these could be tempting. Looking for something in between an i7 and a 1800X really for not too much money. If this can provide a little bit better single threaded performance over the 1800X (would seem logical that this could push slightly higher clocks as it will produce theoretically, 25% less heat) then I'm all in and will save myself a bunch.

Decisions, decisions!

Get a 1700. It works better than the other two and overclocks almost as well for far less.

The clock speeds of the R5 range might be the 'make or break' in whether I go AMD or Intel. I really, really don't want to go Intel, but the 7700K absolutely trumps Ryzen in everything I use a CPU for. Even at 1440p an R7 1700 falls behind and may not be worth upgrading from a 4670K to.

If you want to be CPU limited then sure, get the 7700k

But how can we be sure of this? This is my conundrum. It's hard for me to ignore the numbers.

I don't know where you are getting this information, the 7700k offers much better single thread performance even at stock. It's completely different ball game at 5GHz+.

You might say the difference is marginal, but I can tell you that as a high refresh rate gamer, these margins become significant.

Although I will still be picking up a Ryzen CPU aswell as they offer amazing value for a production machine.

I think he may be referring to how much usage the cores and threads the 7700K is seeing in games compared to the R7 1700. This suggests the 7700K is already at its limit while Ryzen and X99 have room to grow. I could be wrong though.
