Hi all, I’m spec’ing out a new (ue4) dev box and it’s been suggested I get a Ryzen r5 instead of an i7. What’s the general consensus of the i series vs. the new ryzens?
Here’s the basic specs of what I’m looking at, but it’s been suggested that an R5 would have more cores/threads and would handle the compiling, editor launching faster. I’m a bit AMD shy, since last time I went AMD the i-series came out shortly after and, well, you know…
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 DirectX 12 GV-N1060G1 GAMING-6GD 6GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Video Card : $339.99
32gb mushkin rab ddr4 2400 : $244
2 500gb SSD’s (one for os, one for ue4 dev) and a 2tb HDD for random ****.
