This is impressive to say the least. 8 cores for only 249.99 USD with a promo code. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113428&utm_medium=Email&utm_source=IGNEFL112317C&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL112317C-_-EMC-112317-Latest-_-ProcessorsDesktops-_-19113428-S0E&ignorebbr=1
I love Ryzen's value; honestly, for the price, 8 cores & 16 threads is crazy.
I just bought my 1700 about 1 hour ago. I was originally going to get a 1600x but with this deal I upped it to a 1700.
Only 10 dollars more.
How much of a performance increase is this over the R5 1600x? Wondering if the 1700x is worth an extra ~$60 over the 1600x.
This is the build I'm looking at now, gonna buy most of it tomorrow
If you are mainly gaming put the 60$ towards something else but if you are video editing/rendering the extra 2 cores would help quite substantially.
Mainly gaming. I think the highest requirement game I've any interest in recently is the latest Wolfenstein, I'm thinking the build I'm looking at now can handle just about anything I throw at it. I'm not that into maxing out graphics settings.
Thanks for the advice
249.99 is with the promo code.
I would get it if I was a content creator. You can't beat that.
EMCBBCB22 is the promo code from an email. Sorry about not putting it in the deal section I forgot this site had that.
