Haxk204111715dI can tell you that when I switched to Ryzen only with 4 cores but 8 threads the compiling time was cut to third. Ryzen is fucking amazing for dev work.
Jilano1994115dI'm definitely going to the red team for my next build. I was thinking of getting a 3700X for good performance, an okay price, and a low TDP.
No I'm waiting to see some more benchmarks and their GPU.
b3b3510015dHell yes compilation benefits so much from corecount.
RememberMe1129315dParallel compiling is definitely a huuuuuge speedup if you have the IO performance to back it up
irene3103015dWorkstation CPUs could do gaming always 😑
Add a decent video card to workstation and voila - you can play almost anything on it.
RageBone66215dWait for the upcomming reviews, decide on a budget and go with what fits best into that budget.
Zen2 seems to be an amazing step forward, The Ryzen lineup in addition with boards, isn't.
Older Ryzens will probably fall in price, potentially being a better deal, depending on the budget and Target of what you want to achieve with that new WS.
You can go R3K without going for the way to expensive x570.
Either lower end boards or older generation boards.
Depends on what we'll lern after actual release.
vandroid6429015dOh wow, seems like you guys like it ;)
Interesting to hear that core count is actually that influential on dev tasks.
It is common sense, but again the question was if it was noticeable compared to Intel's offerings. The pricing will be hard to beat as well.
Looking forward to the reviews and benchmarks, and the ryzen 2 might be a good deal!
