    Now I'm thinking 🤔... Would a Amd gaming pc of let's say £3000 be better than a Intel ? Someone let me know XD I'm curious

    The truth is: gaming performance relies mostly on GPU... so you can compare AMD with a potato and still get parity.

    mitigations=off (without internet) vs on in Manjaro Lignux with this same CPUs as now Intel is 40% worse after mitigations. Plus, of course, MS WOS and wine.

    Perhaps some games performance and video editing and rendering performance increases with Intel make worth to play - or render - wine - or Lignux native games or video editing software - offline and with mitigations=off, as it is 66% faster (60%x1.66=100) much more than any overclock

    There's one thing wrong with intel, there boards. 1156, 2011...... Most people get what I mean. Amd cpu's does not require you to get new boards to keep up with there growth. I could be wrong.✌

    here's what I'd like to see: an explanation on Why my brand new Ryzen 7 2700 is twice slower than my extremely old I7 920 on Lumion rendering software. when it should be 3.5 faster. Ifeel like i am being scammed by AMD.

    This is just needlessly complicated

    Cases and PSUs work on both, so those could have been excluded especially as they don't impact performanceSo the "budget" could then have just been for drives, CPU, motherboard, cooler, ram and GPU but with a reflectively smaller budget and with an identical case and PSU being "assumed" for each build

    I own both intel and AMD systems. For my most recent build (after years of not gaming) I went with AMD and I have no regrets. I have been an AMD fan since I was 14 when I built my first gaming system (33yo now) I am into this build for under 1k and not completely finished with it, however it is finished in the aspect of being a respectable gaming system.

    -ASUS Prime X470-Pro - $150
    -Ryzen 5 2400g - $150 (because I wanted to wait to buy a card - will prob upgrade to 7 2700 eventually)
    -Sapphire Nitro+ RX590 - $229
    -16GB Crucial tactical 3000mhz - $100 (will add another 16)
    -FSP HYDRO GE 550 - $75
    -Crucial MX500 1TB SSD - $120
    -Metallic Gear MG-NE510_SR01 Neo Series ATX Case Silver - $110
    ***Total $932

    I big part of the cost went into the aluminum and glass case which I forget exactly the cost but it was something like $110 and a 3 year warranty on all of the hardware. All things considered I still came in well under 1k and absolutely love the way the rig turned out.
    I am not a hardcore gamer by any means. I mostly just been playing Paladins with my g/f. With gfx maxed out the game is capping FPS solid at 175..which is totally overkill because I vsync 144hz.. but from the research I did prior to this build I should be able to see 60+fps max setting / 1080 on mostly any game that is out right now.

    Double channel ram has a bigger impact on games than one could think. Comparing single channel 1bank 8GB vs 2x4GB could be not so fair. Maybe Comparing them the same ram config could show more differences

    The other thing useful on AMD based systems, I could chuck a Ryzen 3 3300x in my current 1300x motherboard without a problem,
    I couldnt chuck an Intel i3-9100 into a 7100's mobo with just a bios upgrade

    My $1000 AMD build is just as fast as my girlfriend's intel and nvidia build. And costs $600 less..I actually bave better performance when Im multitasking because of the 6 cores and 12 threads of the ryzen 2600 paired with the 16 gigs of 3200 RAM.

    I’ll save ya 12 minutes. It’s because they provide similar performance in the low and mid range, for a good bit less.

    I hate when someone goes like intel totally suck..
    Not worth it..
    Amd is better.. Intel suck..

    I personally bought a pc in late 2012-13ish.a i5 3rd gen.. And it is still freaking working right now... It sometimes have load pressure and lag a bit... But It is old AF....

    I think if u got a pretty good budget.. Then intel is one of beat..
    But budget pc amd is ruling rn

    Was "allmost" interesting... Would have loved to see both rigs with a 1660, and figure how much additional goodness you get from the CPU side of things.
    I mean, if your looking for sort ofa game console replacement that was actually not bad, but alot of us arent just interested in gaming performance "only".
    You see, when half my cores and clogged up by some VM running in the background etc i DO care for them cores and RAM. Oh the sweet RAM... :P
