I'm in the process of building a new PC for 10 boxing. So, AMD is releasing their new chips in like two weeks and prices were leaked, so they're looking to be like $400~ for the Ryzen1800 which has 8 cores and 16 threads. And I'm hoping for some input from people who are better with computers than I am. (I just know more cores = better for boxing).
Here are some various articles I have found about the chips saying in some benchmarks they are going "toe to toe" with the 6900k
So, I have never ever dealt with AMD. But, would these releases be worth trying them? I mean 8/16, that's like the 6900k which would be overkill for 10 boxing I'd imagine. (Right now I can do 5 with 40% on my 4770k).
