My fx 4300 still runs, but I'll upgrade to a 2600 or 3600 depending on their release

I'd like to see this comparison again at $500 with the amd system using a amd gpu. I think that'd be somewhat fair because amd doesn't have competition for the rtx 20 series cards yet.
connostyper
From me the situation is different. You can built an AMD system with high end motherboard that is cheper than Intel. Then cheap out on cpu for example 2600. AMD motherboards will support 3rd generation ryzen. You can upgrade later if needed.
Bud King
Anthony, with the money you save buying AMD you can put towards fixing your hair.
Crimson Salmadin
The one thing that AMD has over Intel is the upgradeability of the CPU on current motherboards.
Valentin Dimitrov
These types of videos are pure gold Linus.. oh and Anthony's build destroyed, I guess he is much more qualified :D
Derek Stinson
Anthony should have got a second try too.
JD Gaming
upgrade the 2600 to a 1700 since you have 15$ more, also currently the 8400 is $199.99
Jasonoid
Hoping to see what Ryzen 3000 does to the CPU market. Bring more competition from Intel? Let's hope so!
The Automaticist
Can you redo this at around $1300 USD (about the value of the computer I built)
Deyvson Moutinho Caliman
I don't know how CPU performance are these days, but in Nvidia against AMD when they sell similar performance graphic boards, the AMD ones already come overclocked, they spend more energy and have higher temperatures. So if you overclock Nvidia you can go further, put more load into it, because it's harder to make it overheat. I thought it would be the same with CPUs, but it seems that AMD is really up to par with Intel nowadays, although I would like to see CPU temperatures in those tests, those temperatures should be the same because if Intel had a lower temperature it could be overclocked more.

wtf is the "amd build" using a nvidia GPU?.. so this is just a CPU comparison then?

Science done right: "It certainly wasn't what we were expecting, but we're going with it."

Send me a gaming laptop and I'll draw an animal for you Linus.

Amd is for broke peasants. Change my mind
مقاطع مترجمة
Does he change the video Title !! weird
Nick Schafer
I feel they cheated on AMD here. They adjusted the intel specs for something that can't be overclocked(While improving specs and saving cost) when in the first place of the video that one of their requirements was it HAD to be an overclockable CPU.
Suleman Zaidi
isn't the i3-8350k better than the i5-8400? Much higher base clock, even when the 8400 goes into turbo and plus its cheaper
UgLiest_handsome
$1250 budget plz
Nathan Gamble
Well, they've got to do the same with AMD vs nVidia now.

When 8th gen Intel Core launched, the need for a new chipset was in doubt from the outset. ONDA certainly doubted it... But did they stop to ask if they should?

Buy an ONDA H310C-CD3: https://lmg.gg/8KV6y
