  1. For just gaming, go with the 7700k, if you want to game and stream, definitely go with Ryzen.

  2. Agreed. You want to game AND Stream the choice is clear. Ryzen.

  3. 7700k owner here, get the Ryzen for your needs. Have you ever considered having a separate streaming box?

  4. For pure gaming = You need GHz and IPS
    For gaming and streaming you need same as above but you also need CORES.

    So for pure frames pr second you go for i7 7700k, but for a more versatile system go for AMD Ryzen 5 1600X or Ryzen 7 1700X

  7. Games like really fast, single threaded chips. So the 4 core/8 thread7700k offers the best single threaded performance.

    But for workstation task or streaming, that required fast multi threaded performance. The Ryzen 1700 has 8 cores/16 threads and smokes the 7700kin multi threaded performance. While it does not have the single threaded speed of the 7700k, it is not that far off which makes it a very capable chip for gaming and streaming.

    You can stream with a 7700k, but you won't get the performance that you would from a 1700.

  8. Ryzen is better for gaming and streaming. However the 7700k still does a good job. I stream and game on the same pc with my 7700k with x264 1080p 60fps 6k bitrate on very fast with no issues at all. I stream games like rocket league, csgo, wow, pubg and several others.

    Lots of big streamers may have a 7700k over Ryzen simply cuz the i7 has been out longer. And the streamer may have a separate pc dedicated to streaming.
