Oh boy. I guess busses don't go where you live do they. Take that avatar off it is offensive.If you truly believe 'now we have 8c thanks to AMD', then yes, get yourself examined. 8 core CPUs were there far earlier than Zen. There simply wasn't a market within the mainstream segment to launch them despite AMD trying to. For HEDT, there wére - up there you do have nicely threaded workloads and applications. Part of the reason FX-processors sucked so hard was because on MSDT, there were simply no good workloads for it. And for HEDT, Intel 6 cores would already run circles around them. AMD only receives kudos for bringing the price down on higher core counts. Because they compete again across the whole product stack.
For a decade we were stuck at 4c8t. And yet, games did not scale beyond 1 or 2 threads anyway. Found the reason behind that yet? Because that is proof that the movement to higher core counts for gaming is extremely late to the party, we've had quads for ages now and games are only recently truly catching up to that - and still many haven't.
Convenient / no market... aren't they the same? Its not convenient to make parts you don't sell.
You can be all up in arms about what I've said but its not strange and 'making my point', its an observation on what you think happened the last decade, and I think you're wearing the wrong glasses looking back. We need the hardware before we get the software that will fully use it, and then we also need 'the performance', after all if nobody asks for 200 FPS gaming, it won't be built. And the better threading of games on the CPU coincides NOT with Zen, but with the console releases.
The result of better threading then, is that we're no longer tied to single core processing power and thát in turn enables high refresh/FPS gaming. 4K is not even a player in the story here, you can run that on a potato CPU, what does it even do in a Zen topic one might ask... Its no secret that a CPU will do fine as long as its not the part bottlenecking you. There is no 'pursuit' to be had for CPUs to enable 4K gaming.
So, back to my final line in last post: let's not overinflate what happened here with Zen's release, because that is the gist of your story. As if AMD 'enabled' something for gamers. They didn't, and the higher core counts were coming regardless. They gave us back healthy competition and that's all it is.
That is nice. I need to try this on my Ryzen and see what I will get.Here's a interesting benchmark that doesn't have optimizations that favor one company over the other. I wouldn't of expected the Ryzen 5 3600 ahead of the Core i9-9900K though.
We’ve been looking to try out some new benchmarks for Legit Reviews and have been taking a look at a number of them. One of the more interesting real-world benchmarks is NeatBench 5, which is the benchmark application for Neat Video. Neat Video came out in 2005 and is a video editing plug-in...www.legitreviews.com
Puget Systems gets the same scoring with Neatbench 5.
AMD's new Ryzen 3rd generation CPUs just launched with terrific performance improvements across the board. While we don't have the full lineup tested just yet, we wanted to give a first look at what we are seeing in Premiere Pro, After Effects, DaVinci Resolve, and other applications commonly...www.pugetsystems.com
Did a quick run on my desktop.

I think this is the way to go. 4K looks just amazingI thin you should have clarified that 4k is "immediate" future
