So because some anachronistic games are single threaded, u advise going with an extra 46 points on a 7700k, instead of an extra ~450 points in cpu performance from r1700 in multii-threaded. O,KAYE?

Gotta love that max tdp too. 65w and tdp not much hotter than a hot day here in oz. That alone would tempt me - & i still have a reserve of power if i need to overclock later.

If i recall right from my reading tho, the killer value cpu will be the 6 core r5, but the savings and the wait isnt worth it for many.

a factor that would weigh on me heavily in choosing would be what vega brings to the table both absolutely, and via synergies with a sister amd processor. its hard to believe an amd combo wont have major synergies.
I do wish writers would briefly remind us of the included? cooling fan situation. All that is shown is the bare chip afaik. I prefer to avoid the fuss/stress with conductive grease etc.
