CraptacularOneYou answered your own question. Wait till Zen 3 and official benchmarks and not the BS marketing slides in the Oct 8th presentation. As it stands right now however, if you're a gamer first and only do light other tasks like video editing or rendering, go with an Intel based system. They are currently the fastest gaming CPU available. They can do other tasks like the aforementioned workloads but you won't get as many CPU cores for the same money spent with Intel. If you do more actual work on your PC like mentioned earlier then it would benefit you to go AMD for the simple fact that for the same money spent you'll end up with more CPU cores, sure AMD CPUs can still game just fine but they aren't as fast as their Intel counterparts. This could all change with Zen 3 but only time will tell. When it's in the hands of independent reviewers that aren't trying to sell you something look at the numbers objectively and make your choice then.
ng4ever2That or should I wait for Zen3 first ? Who do you think will pull ahead? What does Intel have in store for us once Zen3 comes out if it takes the crowd with single thread performance ? (If anyone knows)
