    tl;dr. No consumer line 8-core from Intel yet. Reply

    No need to rush it since Intel still has the performance crown (the best value crown is another matter ofc). Reply

    Not really. The 1800X still beat the 8700K in most multi-threaded workloads. Intel has the crown for best performance if all you do is single player gaming at low resolution. That's about it. Multi-threaded workload and professional workloads Intel is behind. Gaming at higher resolution or streaming it's really a toss up. Reply

    Well. There is a rush.
    There are those who are on Westmere/Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge who have 6 core processors but are looking to upgrade, like myself.

    Intel's 6-core mainstream parts aren't really attractive considering I have had a 6-core processor for almost a decade, sure... I will gain a massive increase in single threaded performance... But it's nothing that a little bit of overclocking to 4.8ghz on my 3930K that couldn't make up some of that difference.

    Besides... In heavy threaded scenario's, AMD beats Intel.

    I guess I am waiting another year to upgrade. Another year Intel doesn't get my cash.
    Probably not a bad thing at the moment anyway with the price of DRAM.

    "Westmere/Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge who have 6 core processors"

    But those were the extremely high end expensive CPU's back then. Those dont compare with todays standard consumer models, they compare with the Core i9 which has 10 cores https://ark.intel.com/products/123613/Intel-Core-i...

    "In heavy threaded scenario's, AMD beats Intel."

    which matters once we have more than a handful of multi-threaded apps. running discrete apps in background really isn't the same thing.

    Virtually all productivity and real professional programs are nicely multi threaded. And running multiple discrete programs or multiple instances of the same program concurrently is very valid use of multi-threading. Think about what live game streaming involves: all different programs executing concurrently (where each may also be multithreaded): the game, the recording application, the encoder process, the streaming network application, the live audience chatroom, etc Similary with many other cases Reply

    Professional streamers use 2 PC's. 1 for gaming, 1 to capture video and run all the programs. Reply

    They only used 2 PCs because they were literally forced to. Before Ryzen the only option they had was either use very pricey HEDT set up or have a gaming PC and a streaming PC. Often the 2 PC set up would be cheaper. After Ryzen, streamer can easily get by with one PC for everything. Reply

    I could stream with my old FX processor.

    The entire reason I got a 6 core was to multi task. It wasn't the best at everything, but it could do a hell of a lot all at once without slowing down my gaming.

    I regularly would record TV while encoding a video while gaming. Streaming wouldn't be a strain on the machine. It was a purpose built DVR with gaming.
