2600/2400/1600 which should i buy?

For Gaming(most modern game), Streaming and Editing.
6c12t anytime over 4c8t 2400G unless you need the Vega IGPU for your described workload.

2600 over 1600. No point getting Ryzen Gen 1 now.

Anyone experience major improvements moving from Intel to ryzen for the below type of usage?

Handbrake - mainly converting my blu rays/DVD (30% usage) - blu rays sometimes takes about 1 1/2 hr to finish....
Gaming - 40% of the time
Doing simple ms office work - 10%
Surfing net / youtube - 20%

Currently using i7 6700 but motherboard giving problems. Was thinking whether to just change m/b or take chance to switch to ryzen 5/7.

more threads on Ryzen can greatly improve on the converting time.

idk about handbrake but using x264 cli and x265 cli i typically see the following average figures for transcoding bah

~33fps for x264 1080p
~11fps for x265 1080p

also, 1700 o/c'd to 3.7ghz all core (basically a fake 1800X)

You best bet would be the 2600/x.

But the 7950 is starting to show its age. Why not save a bit more and do a 1x good one overhaul?

Basically for Productivity work - Ryzen
For Gaming - Intel

Handbrake- ryzen will be better because of more cores and threads

Gaming - Intel will be better for most games because of higher clock speed because games tend to favour more higher clock speed then more cores

Doing simple ms office and surf net youtube - Does not require much processing power so either ryzen or intel will be ok. For this type of work load a budget intel G5400 or the new athlon 200GE or ryzen 2200G will be sufficient.

Frankly speaking your i7 6700 is fine for your workload. Just change motherboard will do but if hand itch want to try new stuff and buy new toy to play can get ryzen 2700

that part plays a big part.

I do think my gaming will start to drop down a fair bit and use more handbrake.

Getting too old to keep up with those young kids with faster reflexes.

Based on your usage, the video encode/decode will certainly benefit greatly from the extra cores and threads.

Gaming wise, Intel is still better, but AMD is catching up and the gap is closing.

For the remaining 2 usages, you will not experience any meaningful improvement regardless whether you are using Intel or AMD. Benchmarks may claim one is better than the other, but that is just some numbers that you cannot experience in actual usage.

Thanks for sharing these details. I'm only converting to h264 and not even using crf. If I use crf and h265, I think my hair all white already by the time I finish converting them all. Good thing any Intel is that I can rely on the onboard gfx. So I'll usually do 1 DVD & 1 blu ray together. 1 relying on CPU, 1 relying on Intel onboard gfx.

Thanks. Yup. Looking to get 2700 soon but ram prices are crazy.... Not sure whether my current 2133 rams can be reused or not....
