Sorry.Not a valid poll so I'm not going to participate for the following reasons:
- You failed to state the intended primary purpose of this next computer.
- You failed to state your budget for the CPU.
- You failed to specify which Ryzen - there are currently at least 7 models ranging from $169 up to $500 with more models to come.
Since you cannot run an AMD processor and an Intel processor on the same motherboard, safe to say 100% of the people have never run an AMD and an Intel on the same machine!99% of the ppl here didnt try both processors in similar machines (or the same)
The thing about waiting is there is always something new around the corner worth waiting for. I say when ready, take the plunge.I think I will wait until August or September!
I know, what i meant is a pc with same hardware, not changing anything (rams, SSD, cooler, etc.) only the processor i didnt thought to explain that motherboard should be changed too, since most ppl already know it.Since you cannot run an AMD processor and an Intel processor on the same motherboard, safe to say 100% of the people have never run an AMD and an Intel on the same machine!
That has not been shown to always be true. In fact, some Ryzens has been disappointing in many reviews - not so much for "poor" performance, but for not living up to the hype.remember ryzen is smoother in games.
I think you are a bit confused b/w multitasking and multithreading, both are different, otherwise I agree with you. Btw no offence.R7 1800X can excel in multi-tasking IF the program you are running can take advantage of the extra threading capability.
