Thread: AMD Ryzen vs Intel 8th-gen Core – South African price comparison

    AMD Ryzen vs Intel 8th-gen Core – South African price comparison

    Intel has released its new desktop processors in South Africa.

    The base clocks and boost clocks of the Ryzen 1500X are wrong. Its base clock is 3.5Ghz and its boost clock is 3.9Ghz when including XFR.

  3. #3

    Why would you buy a:
    Intel Core i3-8350K 4 4 4.0GHz N/A 91W R2,956

    instead of a:
    Intel Core i5-8400 6 6 2.8GHz 4.0GHz 65W R3,041

    That price difference is wack.

    Probably the main reason is that only overclocking motherboard Z370 is available at the moment. Non-overclocking CPU on extremely expensive motherboard is a waste of money.

    A second reason is that i3 CPU's are available now. For i5/i7 you will have to wait for delivery.
