Editor's Notes

December 27, 2018:

Many moons ago, AMD systems could be constructed at considerably lower prices than Intel rigs. That difference still persists, although less so today than in the past. Where the Ryzen really shines is in its various, many-cored designs, which are more effective now than ever at increasing performance, especially in the newest games. From a pure performance standpoint, you can't really go wrong with the Gigabyte Gaming 7, and the MSI M7 is just about as powerful; the Asus Hero probably even more so. For speed per dollar, the Asus Tuf is a great choice, as is the MSI Pro. The Gigabyte Aorus Pro is a great all-around selection, while the Asus Prime may be the best looking. And for ultra-small builds, the MSI B450I is awfully tough to beat. Keep in mind that a couple of these may need BIOS updates for maximum compatibility; but rest assured, AMD does a great job with ongoing hardware support.
