  1. UPDATED THOUGHTS – So much feedback and comments… I've read them all, thank you…

    1. I'm not biased towards Intel or AMD, I like both companies just fine. Ryzen is a better value from a price to performance point of view, Intel is faster.
    2. What I most love about the i9-9900K is that it gives you the option to "have it all". The gaming performance of i7-8700K and the multitasking/content creation/live streaming performance of Ryzen 7. You pay for this of course, it costs more because you're getting effectively both chips benefits in one package. The 8 cores of Ryzen 7 and the high clock speed of Intel.
    3. The RAM timings were the same, DDR4-3200 CL14-14-14-34 on both test benches.
    4. Both motherboards had MCE (multi-core enhancement) turned on (on AMD it is core performance boost, similar thing)
    5. AMD Ryzen Master was not installed, but the motherboard drivers were and AMD power profile was used.

    As a general point of view, if you're buying a GTX 1080 TI, RTX 2080, or RTX 2080 TI, buy the i9-9900K, it is worth it for such GPUs. If you're buying a GTX 1080 or RTX 2070 or lower, get Ryzen, you're better off buying more GPU generally at that point.

    Also, both machines had clean installs of Windows 10 of them, nothing running in the background, both were updated with the same latest NVidia drivers.

    Further questions and comments are always welcome. Thanks so much for watching!

  2. Meanwhile the ryzen 7 2700x is 160$ vs 570 $ cpu without a cooler and u need a top cooler for this hot i9 cpu that add another 100$ to the cost . So 670$ cpu in total.
    No brainer ho is the crazy value cpu atm.

  3. I've been following you and watching your content the last couple of years and please, allow me to thank you for making very useful videos, I love them! Send you a huge hug from Guadalajara, México! 🙂 Your videos are so useful that even in December 2019 I'm still watching this video from last year :3

  4. the computer parts box display is cute but i'm sure ppl want to see it in action…but the question here is what benefits do i get with all the different type of internet connections available ? (exp: some ppl tether their phones, different providers and speeds)…just how does this fall into play with your cardboard computer parts box fort ?

  5. For the first time since having a very old Sony Vaio deskptop (that was second hand handed down to me) I've gone AMD after nearly ten years using Intel, which was always great but as you said expensive considering I only felt the need to upgrade my 3570k this year says a lot about just how long lasting Intel cores can be, especially later in life with a little overclocking.

    The thing is, after building a family member a new R7 2700X/1060GTX and seeing the price/performance he got out of it I decided that it was the way to go for me this gen and I'm glad you think so too! as I eventually upgraded from my humble 1050 (love that range of 50's from Nvidia always bloody brillent cards) to a 1080 which pairs lovley with my stop-gap 1700X while I wait for Ryzen 3000 series to launch – got a clean upgrade path relatively cheap and won't have to pay full price for the 3000 series after selling off my 1700X! I'm cannot wait to see what AMD has up their sleeve for the next series, as an avid Guild Wars 2 player I'm hoping for higher base clocks on all cores… well generally really.

  6. Only the 9900K and 9700K are soldered. The 9600K and lower have thermal paste, which isn't bad, it's a new thermal paste with better heat transfer. They use the same on the new XEON's.
    The 9900K is $479. Might drop even more, soon as Ryzen 2 hits.

  7. hi there you make great videos with a lot information good job . i got a cheap Asrock N450M Pro4 ,specs says it supports Ryzen 5 2600x and 7 2600x shoul i go. eith one of those or the Ryzen 5 2600.by the way i don't play to much games
