The new AMD Ryzen 7 has been out for a week or so now. It has been tested a lot. As far as I can see AMD has stepped things up a lot. Besides gaming where it do not deliver quite as expected (but not sucking total). The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X cost half of the INTEL 6900K. But deliver about the same performance in benchmaks. So for the first time I in a long time. I will consider AMD for a new build. But perhaps let the newcomer mature a month or two. What do you think?

I think choosing the AMD Ryzen depends on whether you can take advantage of all the cores.  For the software I run, I can only use up to 4 in some situations.  So, single thread performance is more important to me than many cores.  The 1800X has decent single thread benchmarks, but far from impressive:

For example, my 2+ year old quad core 4790K cpu has a 25% higher single thread rating:

Interestingly, Intel's latest 7700K kaby lake cpu only has a 3% higher single thread performance than the 2+ year old 4790K.
