    I only use one thread at a time so hopefully I'll be ok with my k6-2 500

  2. Chrisco says:

    I've been wanting to retire my 2600k for a 2600x!

  3. Dylan Benton says:

    why is the Ryzen 5 beating out the Ryzen 7 in most of the games?

  4. Cpt. Shmitt says:

    I've got a FX-8370 and an RTX 2070, I'm upgrading to a Ryzen 5 2600, will I see returns in my investment?

  5. F.M.F 96 says:

    just click the link dammit

  6. I use amd on my main rig and intel on practically every other computer I have(inc.my laptop) I Would say both are really good

  7. Romo says:

    Intel inside kidney outside

  8. Quick question if someone can answer please. I have a FX8150 for a while now, but last year I bought the RX580. Is it worth it to upgrade to Ryzen 7 2700 for example if the system is used mostly for playing games and some video encoding, and multitasking like usual? I find that I get sufficient FPS in most games, I have a 144hz 1440p monitor so the more the better, but I don't know how bottlenecked my system really is.

  9. Ryzen is great even if all you do is game.

  10. Lol picks the Ryzen 3 and 5

  11. Tyth says:

    Too late, I upgraded yesterday

  12. I think Linus should update this video with newer versions of both ryzen and amd cpus and apus. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Ameer Ayesha says:

    2019 – Yes, yes you should.

  14. Rolf says:

    I upgrade to ryzen 3700x

  15. ๐Ÿ™‚ Everyone with a Ryzen is complaining about FPS drops in gaming. Same as with Bulldozer.

  16. Denny says:

    "intel is the undisputed gaming king"

    thank god that's not longer the case.

  17. Just upgraded from an i7 2600k to a Ryzen 7 2700x. Paired with a 1060 6gb, my VR performance greatly improved after the upgrade.

  18. Tyler Wixson says:

    Bro I'm still using a FX 8320 clocked at 4.3 it barely keeps up with what I need and Intel shit was way to expensive ryzen saved my ass I just got a 2700x

  19. Sponsi says:

    Upgrade not, unless you have 3xxx. If buying sth new, take Ryzen ofkoz.

  20. Time to upgrade my i7 860 ๐Ÿ˜‚

  21. Hello I'm here from the future to tell you a message about AMD Ryzen today
    But first I have to say thanks to the sponsor of this comment Raid Shadow Legends

  22. Can I use ryzen 5 2400g with Radeon 11, 8gb ram. For streaming only? Or I should get ryzen 7 1700 for streaming only.

  23. HockeyRat says:

    Currently you can build a system on Amazon with a gtx 1060 6gb ryzen 5 1600 32gb ddr4 a320 700watt thermaltake psu and 1500gb storage and a spare 3rd gen i5 and the cooler motherboard power supply 8gb ram but your gonna use windows for the gaming one and the case for all about 599$

  24. "Still learning about Changi and Malaysia, right after Alaska, in 2020, in this economy, with these ratings?!" ๐Ÿ—จ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฆ

  25. I prefer intel because of gaming and optane, though ryzen ould improve single threaded performance

  31. Adam Luis says:

  32. I like how it says upgrade not downgrade

  33. Alenygam says:

    Well if you have a 1999 PC you probably have to upgrade

  34. LolU says:

    Intel: Look at the new new 10th gen, it's gonna be the worlds best cpu!
    AMD: Can't be me on price and productivity still, haha
    launches 4th gen ryzen
    Nvidia: Where's the exit?

  35. kai radeonn says:

    2020: "Should YOU upgrade to Intel"

  36. Quinold says:

    3:12 be aware, if you do run on a core i5, there's a very good chance you can't play games like COD Modern Warfare or the upcoming cod games. I need to upgrade to AMD not only for their better streaming support but their better support for multitasking.

  37. John Keith says:

    Both AMD's i had died with in months. 3900X still has serous issues with frequency.
