It’s time for a big ol’ showdown as the shiny new flagship CPU of the Ryzen platform, the Ryzen 7 2700X, goes head-to-head with Intel’s high-end 8th-generation offering, the i7-8700K. We’ve got some big heavy hitters here, so let’s get into it!
Finally, we turn our attention to the 4-core 4-thread i3 line. In this article, I’ll be comparing what we know about the i3-8350K against AMD’s price equivalent, the Ryzen 5 1500X. Intel’s segmentation has gone quite out of hand though, and the 6-core 6-thread i5-8400 falls into the same price category, costing only around $10 more than the 8350K and 1500X.
So, how do these sub-$200 processors compare in gaming and some light productivity work?
With the AMD Press Event details now available to the world, with videos and articles confirming the many (oh so many!) performance and price leaks to be correct, we take a look at the first big leap forward from AMD in five years with the shiny new Ryzen 7 series. On March 2, the Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X, and 1700 will challenge Intel’s 6- and 8-core CPU lineup at very competitive price points. Now we wonder: Is Intel worried?
