Just to let y’all know, I recently built a new PC(Ryzen 5 ) and got rid of my previous 2012 Gaming Laptop. I chose Ryzen for the price though I wasn’t too sure of the architectural differences from my previous i7 Intel chip. But I have to say AMD did very good keeping the x64 architecture on point.
Currently I have an Intel i5 2320, the GPU is GTX 650. The system was setup years ago, back in 2011. I am still very happy with it. However the GPU suffers really bad and can’t be pushed. For example I tried Fallout 4 or Far Cry Primal and they are very slow. Most importantly I am a Blender 3D user, I won’t be able to transition to the new version with it. By testing out the EEVEE beta I see that it runs slow enough to be annoying. 🙂
