i5-8600K is $265 on Amazon right now, so >30% more than the R5 1600 (which is comparable as both are 6 core unlocked multiplier). 8600K is faster single core but does not have hyper threading like 1600 which can handle 12 threads. Both are great processors, but 1600 is more bang for your buck in my opinion.

It is significantly slower than i5-8600k according to userbenchmark.com.

Ryzen is cheaper and upgrades will work with the same socket, whereas the 9th gen Intel chips will use a new socket. If you plan to upgrade your chip regularly or are on a tight budget, Ryzen makes sense since you might be able to keep the same motherboard and change the chip. Otherwise, Intel is probably better at this point. Ryzen 2 comes out in March and may change this though.

Probably not a fair comparison. If you're spending $280 in an Intel CPU [newegg.com], you should be comparing Ryzen 1700 [newegg.com].

For that comparison, here's a thread [reddit.com]. I'm a fan of the little guy, but knowing that I'll be on par with Intel now, and a Ryzen 2 will drop right into my current motherboard, it was a no-brainer for me. I game at 1080p, so there's really not much advantage to an Intel chip for me, and AMD wins at multimedia.

I don't think ryzen is much cheaper. Ryzen 5 1600 costs around 200$, which is similar to 8th gen i5. In this sense, I may better get a i5.

The motherboard is great, but Asrock rebate process sucks. I deducted $3 for expedited processing (2 weeks) and received the rebate only 4 months later.
