    So correct me if I'm wrong but this means if I'm only using a 1050i the ryzen would be the better choice for gaming?

  • Michael MacAllister

    Just a nitpick, but 8 vs. 6 cores is 33% more cores or 25% less cores ...

  • Boemtie

    I have bot cpu s and the ryzen 2700x blows everything away. And inmean everything. I use a mugen scythe 5 air cooler, it is the best aircooler imo, as good as liquid cooling but way cheaper. I use 16 gb 14-14-14-34 memory this is key. 144 hz no problem dont know what thats about.

  • Midgaard

    Short video 17min??!?!?!?!?!?

  • Aou Celloutus

    Just upgraded from 2600x to i7 8700k. As far as gaming goes, it's like night and day. i7 makes games so much smoother and less laggy. Don't get me wrong r5 2600x is a great CPU , does really well in multitasking but i7 smashes it in gaming.

  • skyknight0408

    Good joke! This shitty stock cooler is NOT enough to cool the 2700X in 4.0ghz turbo mode! It's barely enough to cool it at stock rates with the turbo deactivated in bios and even then it goes over 80°C when it gets workload! And the cooler gets loud as a starting plane when it spins at max speed! That's why I bought a better cooler not even a week later!

  • WantoN

    New to the channel, pretty impressed. You’ve got yourself a sub sir.

  • Mogy

    Hello Mr. Techdeals, can you make a ryzen 7 2700x build video? Thanks in advance :)

  • Sergey Pupko

    I'm going to be building a workstation for music creation and photo editing in the near future. I was going back and forth between these two. I dont have experience with AMD but they've had my attention since Ryzen... Now though, 2700X, hands down. Extra cores will come in handy.

  • Ian Esquejo

    this guy is an amazing reviewer...very detailed and specific.

  • Ricky D

    i currently do 1080p 144hz gaming, and occasionaly stream. I might get a 1440p monitor down the road. Can i get away with getting a gtx 1080 or am i better off going with the ti ? Im debating between the 8700k or 2700x. But cant decide which gpu to get

  • Fancy Steals

    New subscriber here! I notice that many benchmarks don't matchcreal world rendering times. Will you do a video of rendering 3 minute 4k clips using adobe, davinci resolve, lightoom etc using 2700x and 8700k/9900k? That video would hit a million!!! Ty and great channel!!!

  • Lingymingy123

    Go 4K ultra on 2700x and it’s a beast but at 1080p it’s worse than intel ???? Lel. (Bc it’s using all cores)

  • Thor Planet

    I would buy the 8700k

  • Striker GAmer

    bro if you wont the real benchs you most show to the peopls the ryzen clock using the r7 2700x is using 30 40 percent of his power in the 1080p but in the 4k when his clock his self as the i7 it's turn to be the r7 ib better

  • Daddy Tachanka

    This was a great informative video. Extremely well made, great commentary, refreshing. This just cements my decision on getting the Ryzen 7 2700x instead of the i7 8700k. Thank you.

  • Lingymingy123

    This test is fake when the r7 2700x is in 1440p bc in 4K games take advantage of those multiple cores

  • BACI

    In germany i5 6800k cost 350€ and i saw ryzen 2700x for 300€ wtf

  • jw

    Thanks. Looking to build a 2700X system soon. Should I hold out for a "2800X"/"3700X" response to the new i9's?

  • Gurmeet singh

    You have a really great channel, I always your find your reviews/content to be clear and easy to understand, im not one for over exagerated intros and joke after joke, great work!

  • Hairforce •

    2700x = good all around processor 8700k = lol where’d all my money go

  • TuxNewsit!

    Whats your daily experience with 2700x? good? problems?

  • Akbar Kumar

    One of the best reviews I have seen. Good job!

  • Yediolqying

    Will an Alienware AW2518HF go well with this processor? I need to know!I mean the overclocked version

  • lulutileguy

    i actually understand what you are saying

  • vilmos horváth

    t would be an ideal test if both 3.7 and 4.7 could go so they could really be equal, so unfortunately I would argue the game with the core i7 8700k, of course, even if it tells you how to beat it


    I am going to stream and game only on my PC I dont know what CPU to get 2700x or 8700k

  • mattloy

    Im looking to stream and compete in gaming tournaments but im stuck on what i should choose between these two. Im getting 240htz monitor and the MSI Geforce GTX 1080 8gb. I like the ryzen because it is significantly cheaper and is good till 2020. However I noticed alot of streamers have the i7 8700k. I want to game and compete at the highest level but is it worth the price to get a i7?

  • takaa e

    What if I want 240hz monitor? I still can't reach 240 fps at all time at 1080p T_T

  • Tech Deals

    UPDATE - Short Comparison between 2700X and 8700K - More benchmarks and full coverage of Ryzen 5 coming in a few days. The X CPUs are the ones to buy in my opinion and I wouldn't bother overclocking them.

  • さめはる

    アップグレードしても 動画が高画質で見れるわけでもない ゲームしなければコアもただ放置して使わないもの、SSDで高速起動?そもそも十秒早くなるぐらい、十秒も待たない超急がしい人間でしょうか?動画エンコード早くなる? 普通の使用者はそもそもエンコードしません。普通にyoutubeみるだけ、結局実感がまったくないと思いましょう ただでもらえるなら使いますが


    If Intel would just put out motherboards with multi-generational CPU compatibility they could easily take some of the market share back from AMD.. I just don't get it. Until then, my next CPU is most likely going to be Ryzen.

  • Erasus

    Simple choice, for gaming buy 8700k if (outside being intel fuckboy ofc) you have 1080p 144Hz monitor paired with strong GPU (at least 1070ti/1080/1080ti/RTX series etc). Outside that setup you are good to go with cheaper Ryzen.

  • Ritz

    I am not in any rush to upgrade my system, but really enjoy seeing the Ryzen in action as it gets better with every iteration. For my use, if I were to upgrade today intel would be better for balls to the wall performance in games. But I digress, the Ryzen is more future proof with its excellent multi-core/thread performance. I'd try our a Ryzen 2700x vs i7 8700k in about 5 years and see which one stands better to newer more multi-core optimized apps and games.By the time I need to rip out my aging i7 4790k, I feel AMD will bridge the gap, as will intel. Exciting times ahead~ Now if only they could put up the same fight against Nvidia. Though unlike intel, Nvidia blindsided AMD with the 1080ti in a clever business move.

  • Improvisable

    1k for a 1080 ti???????

  • DSM Dallas

    vs 9900k and 9700k ASAP please!!!!!!

  • Daddy James Films

    So I'm upgrading my editing computer, I have a Intel I7 4790k. Trying to decide between the AMD 2700x or 8700k for video editing with premiere. I edit music video's and sometimes I have to put heavy effects in it, I heard that while you render a video you can also do other things like surf the web, edit a photo etc, with the 2700x, can you also do that with the 8700k? thx.. but over all which is better for video editing..

  • Kiwi Hardcore

    Just get to the fucking point im tired of all these numbers which should i buy

  • saurabh gosavi

    does gtx 1080 recommended on i7-8700k at 1080p reso or it has to be 1080ti

  • Le Rana

    Oh come on wtf? send him parts already.

  • Anime_Gamer_Weeb

    Should i get the 2700x if i have zero interest in overclocking? and am just in it for the gaming performance on a 4ktv.

  • prathamesh lotake

    200 doller more for 10 to 20 fps that's crazy

  • Ryan

    If I run a Ryzen 2700X with a GTX 1070 would that be smooth for gaming?

  • djeAfskie

    Gaming and Streaming goes to Amd

  • Arteezy

    in this moment i7 8700k is 500 eu and ryzen 7 2700x is 300eu CRAZY

  • King Jiggah

    Shiz im going to have to make 2 pcs one with 8700k and the Ry

  • Light Yagami

    You have my respect now! I have already subscribed! Also going to suggest my friends to subscribe! :)

  • alexander allan

    it 100dollar diffrent

  • TheyCalledMeT

    i'm very with you about the cost benefit argument ... BUT .. buying a HIGH-END CPU today .. does ABSOLUETLY shield you from the necessity to buy a newer CPU within the next 24months .. especialy when you see the marginal performance differences in applications/games achieved by simply putting in a slightly faster cpui'm still running on a i5-2500k (yeah i know .. a 2011 cpu) looking into a new system for about 6 months here and there .. TOTALY off putted by the INSANE GPU prices .. which FINALY are going down now where crypto mining starts getting less and less worth it ..

  • Spoo Ky

    english is not my home language but slow talking , clear english this is so good for the people like me. I like this channel more and more..thank you for that ..

  • Dan W

    @Tech Deals you forgot to mention the 2700X having 20 PCIe Lanes as opposed to only 16 on the 8700K. This can be a huge advantage to people using dual card systems or using several NVME M.2 drives in their systems. Yes the chipset also has lanes that helps but having extra Lanes on the CPU is still an advantage on 2700X.

  • Gary Swartz

    Love this chan - I exclusively look for "Tech Deals" when researching computer stuff!!

  • DSM Dallas

    is 2560 x 1080 considered 1440p? or 1080? when comparing benchmark results? I do see a major load increase from 1920x1080 to 2560x1080 on game FPS with 1080.

  • Randy Espoda

    Well excuse me, but if you buy say a Noctua NH-D15 for the 2700x, you WILL get 4.25-4.3ghz boost and the cpu will remain a lot cooler than on stock cooling.Saying that although the 4.3 boost is promised "4.0 is fiiiine" is ridiculous, that's like paying for an i7 but getting an i5 and then saying 'bwa it's fine' ;) I would state that most ppl would not accept that. Imo this is all very biased information being shown, based upon the mind of someonewho doesn't have the full grasp of what ppl expect from a system upgrade, and what they expect to get when reading the specs on a box.Also the many uses and motivations to choose either extends beyond gaming, content creation and office tasks. There are miners who need it for a specific task, music producers, photoshoppers and graphic designers, and many other 'profiles' that will need one or the other for a given reason...

  • Max .K

    In my country AMD is the much better option.2700X costs about 300 - 400 USD (depending on the retailer).The 8700k costs around 500 USD (again, depending on the retailer).Unfortunately, while AMD is much cheaper here, there is almost no choice in Motherboards.If a certain shop has 200 Intel boards (for all kinds of CPU's), you'll be lucky to find 30 AMD boards in the same shop.
