    I think for the gaming community at mmorpg.com, the Ryzen can make sense over a core i5 and a lot better than a hyper-threaded dual core. For something like LoL or GTA V, the CPU does not matter as much as the gpu. But, the community here tends to play mmorpgs and strategy games. These are both CPU dependant, and strategy games tend to make use of more cores. Something like Total War scale to 12 threads. There are some mmorpgs that re also making use of more cores.
    I can tell you Black Desert Online isnt one of them, it only runs at 18-28 fps in Hidel. Same fps at 1080 as 4k

    Alternatively you could just check out e.g.

    Anandtech http://www.anandtech.com/show/9793/best-cpus   (which agrees with @Gdemami 's i5 comment)

    or Tomshardware http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-ryzen-vs-intel-kaby-lake-gaming,4977.html

    which compares performance in a series of games giving rise to http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-cpus,3986.html   (which also agrees with Gdemami's i5 comment)

    The way things are going though - with Intel adding HT to their Kaby Lake Pentiums (the G4560) and unlocking their Kaby Lake i3 (the i3-7100) will we even need an "i5" (or AMD equivalent) in a year or so?

    To quote from the Anandtech link:

    "The G4560 has a list price of $64 (retails at $80) and runs at 3.5 GHz - that's a dual core Kaby Lake processor only 900 MHz off of the top Core i7 for less than one-fifth of the price". 
    Well you can throw any duel core cpu in the trash, ever look what is running on the PC?  You need more than 2 cores on a PC in today's world.

    So the links above are all wrong and we had better all buy Qualcomm cpus? And AMD and Intel are ripping people off by selling cpus with no more than 2 cores?

    I agree, anything under 8 cores though should be thrown in the garbage, because it is garbage. Also anything under a 1080ti is garbage to and should be thrown in the garbage.
