This gives you an idea of desktop performance. I can't find anything about laptops. The later articles deal more with the TR level CPUsCan you guys give me a decent spec for a laptop for photoshop. Mostly image editing,cutting images for websites,ect.

AMD's new Ryzen 3rd generation processors have arrived and shaken up the dynamic between Intel and AMD in many workloads. But how well do they handle heavy Photoshop workloads compared to the AMD Threadripper, Intel 9th Gen, and Intel X-series CPUs?www.pugetsystems.com

Yeah, for desktop use I would recommend AMD all day every day."
Does Photoshop work better with Intel or AMD CPUs?
At the moment, Intel and AMD are pretty much tied at the high end (Intel Core i9 9900K vs AMD Ryzen 9 3900X), but AMD has a lead in the mid/low-end with their 3rd generations AMD Ryzen CPUs.
If the user want's the best bang for buck they should look at the 3rd gen for photoshop, the R5 3600 or even the R7 3700.
The cheapest I5 is the 9400F but it's 6 cores, 6 threads and is 52% slower than the R5 3600 which is only R600 more roughly.
Even the Zen+ archictecture beats the cheapest I5, well a 2600 is better in a lot of things over the i5 9400f at the same price point. But Ryzen laptops aren't cheap anyway.Yeah, for desktop use I would recommend AMD all day every day.
For laptops it isn't quite as clear cut. The Ryzen 3000 mobile CPUs are still Zen+, so effectively the same architecture as the desktop 2000 CPUs. The 4000 mobile series will be Zen 2, the same as the 3000 desktop CPUs.
While the 2000 series is still great for photoshop, they aren't the clear winner and the Ryzen laptop reviews I've seen made me rather want to get an Intel CPU in a laptop. That said, the Ryzen laptops are usually quite a bit cheaper.
We probably won't get these locally but looks like the best bang for buck CPU atmo -Even the Zen+ archictecture beats the cheapest I5, well a 2600 is better in a lot of things over the i5 9400f at the same price point. But Ryzen laptops aren't cheap anyway.
Yeah that would be pretty coolWe probably won't get these locally but looks like the best bang for buck CPU atmo -
In the 1600AF thread I created someone mentioned the 1600 they got from evetech was a 1600AF, it would be cheaper to buy from amazon/newegg etc though.We probably won't get these locally but looks like the best bang for buck CPU atmo -
What size case do you have, ATX, mATX etc? Will influence MB choice.Hi. I need to replace my main pc parts due to age and a possible 2 year old that knocked over the case. Mobo now just boot loops with everything disconnected. It is also about 8 years old so probably time for it to be replaced.
CPU: i5 2500
Mobo: cheap MSI board (was all I could find quickly after the Gigabyte board failed the second time)
Ram: 2x 8GB DDR3 sticks (unknown brand)
GPU: RX570 8GB (got this end of last year when my GTX 960 failed after 4 years)
SSD: Crucial 250GB and some HDD's
Monitor: Old Samsung 24" 1080p
I am not looking to build a monster gaming machine that runs on 4k, a normal 1080p machine is all I need for now. This pc also doubles as my media pc, does downloads and runs PLEX. So gaming is only a small part of the use case.
Currently I am looking at a Ryzen 2600 cpu with a B450 motherboard (haven't picked a specific one yet, but will be a cheaper one probably). I think it is worth it to get a 250GB nvme drive for windows to replace my ssd as well, so support for nvme is required.
Other than that I am quite out of the loop with current pc tech. Can you guys please look at where I am headed and make some recommendations? I basically need a new mobo, cpu and ram, that will work well with the RX570 for 1080p gaming.
Hi. Case is an Aerocool xpredator X1, which seems to be a mid tower case. It is pretty big so anything should fit.What size case do you have, ATX, mATX etc? Will influence MB choice.
How old is your PSU? Make & model? Might want to get a new one if it's old.
R2199 - AMD YD1600BBAFBOX Ryzen 5 1600 (AF)
R2299 - MSI B450M MORTAR MAX
R1789 - G.Skill F4-3600C16D-16GVKC Ripjaws V 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3600MHz
The 'new' Ryzen 5 1600 (AF) performance is near identical to the 2600, it's the hottest budget CPU on the market.
What you save on the 2600 went into faster RAM and a very decent MB. Shout if you would prefer cheaper options here.
