Cpu question about i7 8700k and ryzen 7 2700x

Nets
 Share

So im building another gaming rig i need 2 pcs at home at the moment,..I have a i7 7700k but since i need to pc i will take this new one to me and want to give my self a little "upgrade", and well i know from most of benchmarks  that the 8700k performs better than ryzen 2700x in most games on 1080p.. on 4k however seems there's no difference at all... i will have this pc on a 55 inch 4k tv... random games not for one game only..

 

At my country the i7 8700k costs more 100€ than ryzen, also motherboard is about 60-70€ more expensive and theres the cooler i have to buy will cost me about 60-70€... so in total we are talking about 220/240€ difference.

 

so my questions are:


.. isnt a budget problem but does the i7 8700k rly worth this difference? 

 

.. does my i7 7700k perform better than ryzen ?

 

Thanks

As always, it depends on the games you want to play. And you might even be okay with a 2600X at 4K rather than a 2700X, especially if gaming is the primary goal. 

PC Specs - AMD Ryzen 5 5600X MSI B550M Mortar 16GB Crucial Ballistix DDR4-3600 @ CL15 - RX5700XT 660p 1TBGB & 256GB 600p Fractal Define Mini C CM V550 - Pop!_OS 20.04

I would go with the Ryzen. It has very strong price/performance.

Id drop to the 2600 or 2600x as at 4K there isnt a difference between them.

 

It helps to put more money towards a GPU which is what truly matters

The 2600x or 2700x... price between them  isnt much.. my question is about if i get little upgrade from the current i7 7700k that i have at the moment or if 8700k rly worth the difference 

 

The money isnt my problem is more that 220/240e more to 8700k seems like a waste

Tl:dr you wont gain anything fro. Picking a better CPU than the 2600 at 4K.

 

The 2600 is the valuechampion at stock and is even better with an aftermarket cooler and an easy overclock

2700x all the way. You'll have a really exiting cpu to upgrade to if you want in around 6 months and the price to performance is worth it. I personally just got the 2700x and i'm super happy with it. around 120fps @ 1440p in BF1 with a 1070ti.

Yep thats good, also how much higher resolution more the gap between intel and ryzen get closed... i might go to 2700x but not sure yet since on ryzen in couple years we can buy cpu and replace it i might stay in 2600x that is 100€ less And maje the job done to... and invest it on 3200mhz 32gb memory! 

 

I will try ryzen... i like AMD i use radeon cards for a long time... never had a good experience wirh nvidia.... radeon allways deliver few less fps comparing to Nvidia cards.. but for some reason it lasts many years while nvidia not.

I haven't seen anyone mention this directly yet, but the i7 7700k is in fact better than ryzen, so getting am4 would be a downgrade.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Well i can't say.. never work/ pla on ryzen... im not an enthusiawtic gamer... 2 years ago my old mobo died so i bought i7 7700k + asus maximus hero+ 16 gigs ram... and well didnt notice much diffrence from my i5 2500k.... yeah like 50fps more in cs go...but in most of games all basicly stayed the same....

 

Well my opininion since 1st to 7th intel generation basicly we only saw new series not new processors... now 8 gen got six core cpu...and also have came ryzen... but after aĺl i will need other pc so i need a new cpu...i know the i7 8700k is better cpu but in this topix my basic qestion still remais the same ....

 

Does the i7 8700k worth the 220/240e more than ryzen 7 2700x?

Or the 300€ from ryzen 5 2600x?

I was waiting for something similar and yet people went full amd mode.

 

to OP:

At 4k you wouldn't see a difference between the ryzen 7 2700x and the i7 7700k in games. The 7700k would perform better in games if you weren't gpu limited at 4k, so i don't see any reason to go for the ryzen when you already have the 7700k.

 

If you need another system you could get a lower end for whichever you use less but if you want 8700k or 2700x, then the 2700x is much better value, 8700k is way too overpriced at the moment.
