> "For anything else tho, you save like $200 by getting Ryzen 7 1700 that has pretty much equal multi-threaded performance"
A Ryzen 7 1700 scores 13,750 with 8 cores on cpubenchmark (13,750/8=1,719 per core), while a 8700K scores 16,139 with only 6 cores, which is a score of 16,139/6=2690 per core.
So not only does the 6 core score substantially better than the 8 core Ryzen 7 1700, when you look at the score per core the Ryzen 7 1700 is nowhere near what you consider "pretty much equal multi-threaded performance", quite the opposite actually.
The 8700k is an overclocked overheated CPU that most likely has a short shelf life due to that. It also isn't worth spending an arm and a leg on a new Intel motherboard when you can get one for Ryzen and then swap out the CPU in 2020 for a 7nm Ryzen.... Something that Intel can't do.. You know the upgrading a CPU and moving to a smaller node... Intel can't do that with their massive CPU's.
AMD's CPU's are so cheap, they made it the single most cost effective manner to upgrade a computer. Swap out the CPU. And here you are telling people to buy something huge, slow, expensive, with absolutely no chance to updgrade in the future.
Intel isn't only the more expensive choice, it's the slower choice.

You just say that because you don't have the money to spend...
Presume all you like... I have a £1800 gaming laptop as well as my Desktop so ner. :p
100 hrs is not whole lot for a game that has been in EA for a year and that you claim to be 10/10....
He spent 100 hours on the EA which was only Act 1, or 25% of the game. The additional 75% released this week with the full launch.
I can say I am not getting much sleep this week playing. I can't stop.
> "No Daikatana? Junk list, Jules. For shame."
You mean that game with 49% approval rating on Steam? Junk comment, Fraser. (I can only assume that you were joking)
I am pretty sure he was cracking a joke haha, if he was serious I might as well have slit my wrists and played super smash my whole life.
Did you read properly what it was saying?? Like UNIFIING Minecraft? That means you can play minecraft on W7 or 8 with someone on W10, W10Edition, android, ios, etc..
