Can you fix the spacing on the last three listings? The two 7700 listings were especially confusing since at a glance I thought they were both unlocked CPUs thanks to having a K mashed up against the end of the 7700.

Now that the 8700k came out at what price does the 1700 become a good value?

Prices aren't even near the front page prices before for these. Prices should be going down very soon on these Ryzen chips. Wouldn't bother buying any of these at the prices listed in the OP.

Considering that the 8700K is $370+ if you can find it in stock to begin with, $270 looks more than competitive especially if you take into consideration the motherboard and cooling costs you are looking at a price difference of $200+...

The 8700k does not change anything for Ryzen. 1700 is still a good value.

Yes, but the 8700k can do things that a 1700 can't do (although the 1700 holds up in fine in niche moviemaking tools I literally don't know a single person that uses). If the price difference is $200, and if you are a PC enthusiast, it's probably $200 well spent.

It's a subjective question, so I would personally say that a Ryzen 1600 for $175 and a 1700 for $240 is about right. The 1700 was showing up for $270-280 in early summer, so it should certainly be a decent amount chunk cheaper than June pricing in the near future after Intel's strong return of serve. If you are a gamer and you want to future-proof, especially with extremely high-refresh monitors becoming commonplace, maybe look at an 8600k if the 8700k is too pricey. And if you're not necessarily in a hurry, the Ryzen 2nd generation in 2018 1H is very interesting. If AMD can get better thermals with a smaller process, they are right there with Intel.

Bottom line, AMD and its vendors probably won't significantly reduce pricing until Intel can flood the supply channel with Coffee Lake. Historically, that will be a month or two. Right now is not the best time to buy unless you literally need a system immediately.

You do realize that the 8700k uses TIM and is not soldered, and has worse thermals than Ryzen right? Unless you plan to delid Ryzen is probably the better option if you value good thermals until Intel decides to solder their stuff...which I doubt will happen any time soon.

Ryzen actually has better thermals and uses less power than Coffee Lake. At least the 1800x is more power efficient than the 8700k, and runs cooler from the review that I have seen.

Didn't read all the details but the AnandTech review seems to show that Coffee Lake is pretty darn good at power...

The Ryzen 1700 intrigues the hell out of me though.....

Sorry if that wasn't clear, I meant clockrate, both stock and overclocked; either way, Intel is about 20% better, and they have higher IPC for a given clockrate. It looks like every k-class Coffee Lake can do 5.0/5.1 on air. If you undervolt and underclock Intel, you can probably get to Ryzen TWD, but Ryzen can't get up 5.1 GHz.

For total work done per watt, Ryzen is as you say attractive. Ryzen is generally attractive in a lot of ways if they can get pricing down just a bit. If I was building a $600 system for someone, I would go AMD for sure. If I was building a $1200-1500 system for myself, where the most demanding thing I do is typically games (at least for 99% of the day) and I'm planning on getting an upcoming 200 Hz UWQHD 35" from Asus/Acer, then Intel Coffee Lake is the only choice. A competitive market is great! At a more typical $800, there are compelling arguments to make either way.

Would you care to elaborate? Ryzen wins on most multithreaded tasks. The 33% more cores makes the clock advantage moot for multithreaded tasks.

Now the one area that Coffee lake does excel in is gaming. Higher frequencies do win over cores here. The caveat here is that the CPU is usually only the bottleneck when paired with a very high end GPU and/or when resolution is low. If you are gaming at higher than 1080P then you are still better off using said $200 on a better GPU than going with Intel if you have budget constraints.

At $1500 and under, Coffee Lake isn''t even a choice. You are better off going Ryzen and taking the savings and upgrading the GPU... Would you prefer a 8600K + GTX 1080 or a R5 1600 + GTX 1080 Ti? For UWQHD, the bigger GPU always wins...

No way. One major site couldn't even get theirs past 4.8 on air, and couldn't do 5ghz on water at any voltage. And how many review sites got their review CPUs hand-picked by Intel? Intel wouldn't send the lower-performance ones if they have a choice.

Maybe things will improve in the coming months, (since the CPUs and mobos right now are barely available anyway on this paper launch), but this is how it is right now.

Adding in the cost of a GOOD cooler, (212 won't cut it), plus possibly delidding, plus the relatively limited amount of oc room, plus the extra heat and power consumption of a serious oc, 8700k is a very good CPU, but it can be hard to justify the extra K costs involved unless wanting to oc just for enthusiast reasons.

And if someone wants a non-K CPU, the lower-priced non-oc mobos are said not to be available until spring 2018. So getting a non-K now means having to pay more for extra mobo features they can't use.

Coffee Lake is good overall, of course, and makes the CPU wars even more interesting than they have been lately.

^I'd hold off on coffee lake(not like you have a choice any way) until even the ryzen refresh in February if you don't need to upgrade now. If you do need to upgrade now I'd say Ryzen is a solid overall choice. Aint nobody gaming at 1080p with an 1800x or 8700k any way...I'm sure those guys will have a 4k monitor, and that is where the gpu is limited. But if you seriously plan to say render a video, and play bf1 at the same time, while streaming yourself, I could see the Ryzen extra cores coming in a bit handy. Otherwise if you are at 1080p only and mainly a game, save your cash, a $59 g4620 Pentium, and a gtx1060 is all you need to get 60fps.

Ryzen has longer term potential when they finally make games that make use of the cores. Right now games are optimized for 4-cores and highest clock frequencies and that's why the 7700k or 8700k absolutely batters Ryzen 1700/1800- it doesn't overclock well enough to compete when comparing it just core to core. This is all moot point though, with a fast GPU you are gaming at pretty much +100 fps on most older games and even newer games and so the extra fps you get from an intel doesn't really translate into actual experience. Down the line I do think 8 cores will come into better use it'll be closer but I expect Ryzen to still be behind. Cannon Lake though to be an entirely different beast when it comes out next year and then there's also the Ryzen refresh too.

Anyway good deal but codes expired now.
