Streaming CPU?

Hi, I was going to start streaming occasionally and I wanted to upgrade my cpu. I orginally has my mind set on the 8700k but I am unaware of how Ryzen pairs up with intel now. Which would help me out the most? I have a 1080 ti, 16 GB of ram and a 1080p monitor(if that matters). Budget as of right now im not really 100% concerned about, obviously I dont want to spend more then I have to but I also want to get something that will perform well for a long time. Any ideas or help is appreciated. Thanks

What will you be streaming?

Fornite, Overwatch,CS, PUBG. I dont really have a single game. That may make it harder for me to pick a cpu but those are some games I would plan on streaming.

Well, a Ryzen based system is much cheaper and loses as much or less performance than Intel based builds. A nice set up with a Ryzen 7 1700 with a good motherboard will lose a lot less performance compared to an 8700K when streaming.

The 8700K pushes more frames but gets a bigger hit on performance when streaming. The Ryzen 7 systems tend to have a better 1% and 0.1% and this should keep your framerate more consistant and stable when streaming thanks to the 2 additional cores.

Ok, so would you say to go with Ryzen now or wait till Zen+?

It would make the mopst sense here to go with Ryzen. As for Ryzen vs Ryzen+, hard to say. It is coming out pretty soon so if you can wait, it might be worth it.

If they can improve memory compatibility and improve a bit on the IPC, it will be a nice lineup of CPU.

Now that youve mentioned everything about ryzen, I did alittle more reasearch into it and cant decide. Ryzen is alittle cheaper and doesnt lose as much but Intel has better gaming performance. Its hard to decide.

If you already have a reasonable CPU, you might think about keeping it until Zen + launches in Early April, which should be able to clock @ 4.4 Ghz or greater. If you can't wait, the 8700k will match the 1700 in multi threaded performance with greater single threaded performance, although it costs 100$ more. Do you have a high refreshrate monitor, or is it standard 60-75hz? For streaming, the 1700 and 8700k will perform nearly identically, although the 8700k will outperform the 1700 by about 15% in games whenever you're not streaming, although they'll both be well over 100 FPS.

As far as I am aware, it won't be until Zen2 that we may see increased clock rates into the 4.3-4.5GHz range. And, even this is just speculation at this point.

I thought Zen 2 was adding on more cores, but what do I know :P I'm doubting that they're going to improve their IPC in between Ryzen and Zen +. AMD is already claiming that they're going to have 10% + performance increase, not to mention that that should be the difference between 14NM and 12NM, and if they dont meet their claims Zen + isn't going to sell too well...

I will take a look into Zen+. I do have a 144hz monitor. Thats one of the reasons I was leaning towards the 8700k, It has better performance in overall games.

Yeah, since you have a 144hz monitor you're either going to want to shell out the extra Benjamin or wait a few more months for Zen +, which should be quite close to the 8700k in gaming...

Yeah thats why I am leaning towards to 8700k. I was just unsure how ryzen paried up to it.
