not sure if off topic. but anyone here can advise if i should get ryzen 7 1700 or wait for ryzen 5 1600x.

I do both content creation and gaming but i tend to lean more towards gaming.
I have a i5 7600k right now but i believe both ryzen choices will be better than the 7600k as im using a 1440p monitor.
This is not off topic but depends on who reply you.
I'd say go for Ryzen if you do both. Not the faster better cheaper i7 7700k ftw version.

OC your 76K

Happy with performance? Stick with it

Else, bait for wrenchmark then try to arrive at a conclusion on your own. The moment you second guess yourself is the moment you realise that you should've purchased (the other processor in your consideration list)

Just stay with what u have. U have been sucked into the temptation of upgrading lol..
thanks for replying guys. The thing is im actually oc'ing my 7600k at 4.6ghz. im okay with it if im purely just gaming. But i find it lacking when im doing multiple tasks while gaming. Like maybe streaming or even opening tabs on my 2nd monitor while playing intensive games(theres this weird stuttering that i cannot explain). Rendering is fine cause when i render my videos i don't game while rendering.

Im just wondering if getting a ryzen would remove that weird stutter when i multitask since a 1600x would be the same price as my 7600k.

Bear in mind though

Going for Ryzen means that you'll need to buy a mobo too

That additional cost will/should make 77K more ideal as an upgrade

Streaming-wise, if you're going to use x264 (software), then Ryzen would be "better" since you'll get 2 more cores to play with. However, if you're using QS/NVENC/VCE, then CPU choice becomes irrelevant.

As for the stutter, my guess is that you're hitting the limit of 4c4t cpu. The only way is up from here on.

Initial impression with multitasking aka play game run Spotify compute small thing on the side and open office excel while game runs in background is good. Can feel (yes it's subjective with no hard benchmarks) that it's smooth and faster esp unzipping something all at the same time.

Heng I don't subscribe to feeling=fact

My truth is that the MMO I play needs at least 4c8t to avoid cpu bottleneck in high player density zone

It's a fact, unzipping files is a whole lot faster on ryzen R7s.

Consider all your options like selling away the current rig and buying a new one and watch below(simulated though but a good guess i would say) and make your decision.

Need to be more specific,
Ryzen is like Toyota carry 8 person and could travel on normal city road (1080p) at 60km/h and i7 7700k is like Ferrari carry 4 person and travel in normal city road at 80km/h.

But when on the highway (4k gaming), Toyota can travel at 120km/h and Ferrari can do 121km/h...Then so much for a Ferrari can do on a highway. Lol
Well not every one plays on 4k. Competitive gamers never ever play on 4k, only those casual gamers focus on eye candy instead of gameplay. So its really seeing what segment are you into.

And also if your applications dont require a "highway", why spend on extra cores if you never ever gonna use.

Plus games are still not multi core optimised if we are talking about gaming. Future maybe, by then amd ryzen obsolete liao.

Unless you REALLY are a content creator, then yea ryzen is good. There is a difference between a real content creator and a wannabe. =p or if u love unzipping your files everytime. 😂

And not everyone is a competitive gamer. Seriously we get better and better GPUs is because of eye candy.....by your reasoning we should be playing on low res monochrome display then maybe pushing 100000000000000000(feel free to add more zeros) fps.


And also if your applications don't require a "highway", why spend on extra cores if you never ever gonna use.

No need spend more, the 1600X or the 1700 is less or similar price alternative to the 7700k.


Plus games are still not multi core optimised if we are talking about gaming. Future maybe, by then amd ryzen obsolete liao.

No need wait lah some titles already beating the 7700k.

So only content creator must have multicores, those that do scienctific work , production work , software coders, real competitive gamers/twitch streamers, etc...etc...don't need them then.

pretty sure a kaby lake celeron would do just fine for your usage

kaby lake iGPU + latest chrome and you are good to go

disclaimer: i do not use chrome but last i checked, chrome now does vp9 acceleration on supported hardware
