AMD is killing it!

I was kicking myself when I bought AMD at $12— see in 2016 AMD was around $3 a share. Now that was before Spectre, Meltdown. In 2016 the CPU market was in a lull, after many iterations of the same i7s vs the FX series- consumers were unimpressed.

Fast forward to today- and you can see in the graph, Ryzen and Thread-ripper have lived up to their expectations. As enterprise applications move to container-centric environments and virtualization becomes commonplace, threads and cores matter more and more.

AMD is absolutely dominating the consumer market, and at a price-point. Having just tested a middle of the road AMD APU (Ryzen 3400G) in a system with no video card, I wont be switching to (or recommending) Intel any time soon!

AMD POWER BOTTOM

The AMD Athlon 200GE/220GE/240GE is a CPU with a GPU integrated. This is an absolutely excellent choice if you’re dipping your toes into socket AM4. With Dual core/ 4 threads, it’s a great starter CPU for 720p gaming. At $55/$69/$75 USD respectively (Air cooler included,) It’s insanely cheap, and of course, wildly upgrade-able if you want DDR4 and an unlocked CPU.

If you are in the market, This is about a good as a deal that it gets for an entry level CPU.

GTX 1660 Ti – A decent buy in Aug 2019?

The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. The current one I was eyeing is a Gigabyte. 1800MHz, with 1536 cuda processors, up to 4 monitors supported with 6 gigs of GDDR 6 @ 12000MHz. It’s overclocked with Turing architecture, which is a bit of an oxymoron if you’re doing anything with AI and value your model integrity (overclocking can lead to model corruption.) But do I really need a new 1660? Is it worth going from a last gen top of the line to a next gen midgrade?

There’s no short answer. It depends entirely on the use case and what card you have. To keep it simple, lets just look at the benchmarks.

So I am rocking a GTX 1080. Clearly nextgen is not for me. My friends rocking GTX 1070s or 1070Ti s — it’s probably a good idea to wait. Why upgrade if you’re not getting a monster improvement? So if you were top of the line last year, you’re probably still close to it.

If you’re one of those guys that uses parts until they give out, or you’re used to playing things on medium / low detail, the 1660 Ti might be a good choice for you if you’re looking to upgrade. If you’re still on a GTX 780, or 1050 Ti, or a R9 280/380X or RX570, consider the GTX 1660Ti. It’s definitely a decent buy — Close to the top with a pricepoint.
