Why should I buy the ryzen 1800x or 1700x when the 1700 only has 15-20% less performance at stock speeds?

I think amd is running into another rx 470 vs rx 480 stituation except the weaker hardware is better to buy due to much lower prices and a small performance decrease that can be fixed with some tweaks.



Oh well, I recrommend the 1700 to my friends because it is the most bang for your buck and has less reported issues than the 1700's Little sisters.
