A small bit of hope for those waiting for gaming benchmarks...

Per AMD's demonstrations, the Ryzen also beat the Intel chip in Handbrake video encoding and boasted somewhat better frame rates in Sniper Elite 4 at 4K

Check linus video. 1700 beats 6800. More cores and low price.

AMD did it. After 13 years (I think) they have better CPU s than intel.

It's the beginning of a new Era my fellow techies, Let's embrace it with open arms!

Intel really needs a game plan for coffee-lake to bring their a**es up again.

There is no official release date for R5 series right ? That sucks. R5 range is the sweet-spot for gamers.

Yeah! I saw! That fxxxxxg sux. The above high end range is overkill for most machines. R5 is what we want. Even the cheapest R7 would be close to 60k if not more right ?.

More like 45-50k. cheaper than 7700k

Cheapest R7 processor is USD 329 which is approximately LKR 49000/-. So when it comes to SriLankan shops it would be at least 8K-10K more, isn't that how pricing works ?

See, in zero's pricing above he has listed R7 1700 to be 55K. That estimation was based on leaked pricing which priced R7 1700 at $319. Now that they have released the official pricing as $329, the Sri Lankan price should be somewhere around 59k at least.

I am not a math genuis, so I d be more than happy to be corrected here.

a 10usd increase wouldnt amass to a 4k increase
unless im wrong

Well yeah, it would still make it close to 57 right ? Not 45-50 as truckrice suggested.

Expect these to cost slightly more than the equivalently priced Intel parts. Intel has a policy where they maintain global MSRP (hence the $360 7700K costing almost exactly the same here). I'm not sure AMD will have the same, so usual component pricing (MSRP +20%) would apply, so a Ryzen 7 1700 would cost somewhere around 55-60k.

There is no official release date for R5 series right ? That sucks. R5 range is the sweet-spot for gamers.
For gamers, I would suggest looking at the R3 range instead of the R5 range. The R3 1300X would be the equivalent of a i5 7600K for around 25k with a good overclockable gaming motherboard going for around 20k. That saving will allow you to upgrade from the GTX 1060/RX 480 range to a GTX 1070.

I didn't do the math tbh but thought since it's cheaper than 7700k it would cost less in SL too. Apparently not. Oh well one can dream.

Why you always suggest CPUs which are bottom of the line? Yes they are good CPUs yes your intentions may be good but why nobody understand, when you are building a PC you need to think ahead not just how it perform today.

Anyway for gamers I would suggest R5. You get 7700k performance for 6500 price.
