AMD Ryzen 7 Processors Review

Gaming

For all the wailing and rending of garments that has gone on in certain parts of the internet about the gaming performance of the Ryzen CPUs, even the humble 1400 at stock has enough performance to pass 60 FPS average in our three games. See. Shut up internet, you're wrong. Yes the Intel CPUs just have the edge, and yes more clock speed is a benefit, but once you pass 60 FPS who cares.

Great review Tom. So many angles on this one. Keep on the good work.

I am building new system for a friend, and i am undecided between Intel, or AMD which is the good thing. Last year it was go with intel... No brainer.

1500X could be the next AMD best seller.Quote

I feel sorry for tom even though in the video he says if you play games that need frequency then go Intel otherwise the 1500x is great for gaming he is still a biased AMD fanboy going by FB comments because Intel was better by 5 fps in other games.

Thanks for the review Tom you gave all the info needed and I had a big enough coffee cup to watch it all in 1 sitting. They just need some better looking B350 motherboardsQuote

MSI have a couple coming. Tomahawk and Grenade or something stupid.

TBH if you only do gaming on a PC and nothing else then I guess it's worth buying Intel. Anything else? AMD have it covered Quote
