very true

7820x oc 4.8GHz vs 1700 oc 4GHz both with 3200 ram

gaming performance about the same

single threaded photoshop performance 7820x is ~15% faster

rendering video 7820x is ~25% quicker

 

so although the value isn't great there is more performance there

threadripper for a little more will eat it in the multithreaded performance but performance about the same as the 1700 in single threaded

The advantage in photo rendering tests are even less than the video ones, and that's likely the workload that'll be done.

 

Coffee Lake is out of the question. If the 8 core was out.. which is what the Z390 board is going to support, that might be different... but would it still use the ring bus architecture or go to mesh like Skylake X and lose its edge? Regardless it's still not here.

 

7820 or 1700 would be good buys and arguments for both. But for me, -50% cost for the 1700. it's not that far behind in the rendering workloads, and there's an upgrade path for Ryzen+

 

But if g_day didn't want to swap the CPU out and sell the old one later... then 7820 would be the go.

 

 

EDIT: In my silly opinion of course.

Kind of an interesting analysis in several ways - especially what it says about me!

 

  1. Although in the past I have switched between AMD and Intel as it suits my gaming needs - when it comes to non gaming I seem to lean to Intel - not sure why my bias
  2. Although I have forked out maybe close to $30K for all my astronomy gear - building a rig to better handle astronomy workloads has me trying to allocate under $6K to a decent, future expandable rig - where as maybe $5K would be ideal for AMD and $7K for Intel.  So ignoring value and looking at fit for purpose can't say why I didn't simply go for a 12 or 14 core I9 today for an extra $1K to $1.5K and just say hang the expense.  Most likely because it's too much cash that can go elsewhere and I simply don't do astrophotography often enough to warrant the financial commitment of a bigger machine today.

I was really interested to see how well older CPUs heavily overclocked do in games.  It makes me wonder how much of that is games not yet fully optimised for multi core CPUs.  The Intel path means my budget is gouged on CPU and Motherboard pricing versus AMD - if folk can justify that - you can expand the system you want fairly easily.  Wonder in a years time what CPUs will look like?

You've probably got the old Pentium 4 and Athlon 64 days etched in your mind.

 

What games do you play?
