2nd Gen Ryzen Kicks Much Ass

Postby FlyingPenguin » Sun Apr 22, 2018 8:20 pm

Nice to see AMD back in the running. Much as I'm a die-hard Intel guy (because I worry about compatibility and Intel is in bed with Microsoft) I think I'd go Ryzen right now if I was building a new rig.

My next build may be one of those. Reviews have been pretty good, and there will be more optimizations.

That Ryzen 5 2600X for $229 would be a killer deal. The bundled Spire Cooler is also very good from what I've heard.

I have to say that if I was building a workstation now (mine is only a year and a half old) I'd go Ryzen with 8 cores multi-threaded. I do a lot of video trans-coding with my workstation.

And I have never owned an AMD processor before, but yeah, I think they're that good now.

I've owned them when they were more hype than not, but I built my NAS on a cheapo 1600 processor and it's been great. When I feel the bug bite hard enough I'll replace my current i7-5820 with some sort of Ryzen build, if only because I multitask a ton on my main system. Although I dont forsee this CPU getting slow on my for a few years :/
