    Don't forget about the new Ryzen 3000 series arriving in early 2019

    As others have mentioned pay special attention to the clock rates - I run a ryzen 1600 and its clock rate make things feel sluggish at times

    Personally I think the Ryzen is better, you get the better rendering performance. Plus I'm pretty sure the Ryzen is cheaper which makes it even better.

    I have used Intel and AMD both Intel is good for heavy workload but when it comes to Rendering and 3D, AMD is more better.

    One of my friend was having Dell system with i5 and 8GB of ram and was using Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Corel for 4 color work and designing he has one huge file which used to take 1 hr just to open that file and if he copy and pate any content from one page to other it again the same. I suggested him for borrow new system from someone to check. He borrowed from his friend the same i5 config and the things were the same he told me to suggest some new system and told him to buy AMD FX 8250 and that same file was now opening in just 20 sec with 4 GB of ram.

    Why don't you just get a GPU? I own both Ryzen 1st and 2nd Gen CPU for mining and also for rendering. I do a lot of rendering for video work and it's faster with a GPU, even a 1050ti is fine. NVIDIA GPU + Ryzen is my choice.

    In my opinion and considering your use case (rendering/photoshop) ryzen would be the way to go. The multithreaded performance will be a lot better. I would also consider the 1920x/1950x for these use case because of the low prices. You can always upgrade in 1-2 years if you want to.

    I do not completely agree with the GPU side of things. It will depend heavily on the software and the workflow. GPU is important for Viewport rendering and to some extend Photoshop effects

    I came here to say the same thing as sachinaut. If peak gaming performance were your desire, I'd go 8700K, but the 2700x is better at many threads.

    I ended up w/ 8700k simply because I got my gear at 30% discount... I even refused to purchase it at first because I thought it was stolen.

    8700K is better Ryzen 7 2700X for gaming. But rendering would be better with Ryzen 7 2700X..

    Sorry but the people who support AMD, if the prices of AMD and Intel becomes equal on similar CPUs are the 1st ones who migrate to Intel ASAP! Many of them hide the fact that price is the only cause of their choice. However, I prefer Intel 8700K.

    The 9600K is an absolute beast. My personal gripe with intel is that you need to replace the motherboard every time you want to move to a newer generation cpu.

    CES is happening next week, hopefully we'll see what AMD has up their sleeve.

    You will want a Ryzen 7 2700X if being used for rendering hands down. 2 additional cores, 4 more threads and if you overclock it :cool:. Will be worth the investment for the work you plan to do, thats the field it excels in. Also AMD is more budget friendly, and sadly the i7-8700k and 9700k both appear to be better gaming and regular use wise. But as for rendering Ryzen takes the cake. If you can afford it though, a Threadripper 1920X-2990WX would be a great upgrade if you profit from your work aswell.

    Well as my signature states I built another Intel. Thanks for the opinions and I'm now closing the thread.
