  1. I like this guy. He reminds me of Linus before he started pandering to get more viewers with toilet humor and whatnot.

  2. Not sure why no one benchmarks battleground…. it's always in the top 4 streamed game in twitch yet everyone for some reason benchmarks gta like really? Lmao no one plays that shit anymore stop benching it

  3. Titan x and 1080ti tests both prove the future of gpus and gaming belong to Intel with 20% better performance over Ryzen 7 so looking forward to continued gaming on Intel chips with new gpu lineup in Q4.

  4. OK, so if I went with a ryzen 5 1600, nvidia gtx 1060 3gb, ballistix sport lt 16gb ram, asus a320 m-k mobo, wd 1tb hdd,120 gb ssd, 450w psu, would that 1. be compatible, 2 be a good quality build for mainly e-sports games, with a bit of COD, and bf1? pls reply

  5. The difference in price between 1400 and 1500X is not so important. Considering the 1080p tests do you recommend 1500X model? And what about photo and video editing?

  6. hey, guys, I'm thinking of buying a Ryzen 5 1400. is there any other CPU which might be a better choice at or close to the same price??? I'm a complete noob so help.

  7. Why does everyone decide that testing a Ryzen 5 with a GTX 1080 (or other high performance/high cost Graphics card) is a good idea?

  8. Ryzen performs wayyyyy better now with the latest bios. My MSI x370 board with a 1700 and 3200mhz ram is now on par with a 4790k in single core performance at 4.0ghz. Not bad for 299$ compared to a 340$ chip. I look at it as having two 4790k cpus in one with 970 SLI it's a beast for sure.

  9. you got yourself the most precious subscriber ever to your channel.  ME . tadaa 
    *also a thumps up given for free . (was a special offer )

  10. Although the Ryzen 5 1400 is the "worst" out of the 4 Ryzen 5s, is it still worth picking up for a gaming pc?

  11. I'm not a particular fanboy of Intel or AMD. I'm disloyal and I go to the one with the highest specs for the cheapest price.
    So Intel can suck it in this case. Getting my Ryzen 5 1600 in a week.

  12. I DON'T want to overclock. So, what should I buy: 1600 or 1600x ??
    My purpose is to play and record games (at 1080p) at high graphic settings (not necessarily "ultra"). I've already bought RX480 8 GB GPU and 16 GB DDR4 RAM (2400 MHz). Please advise. Thank you.
