Notice where I stated these are benchmark figures ? i.e Not real world applications. That is why I also said we need to see reviews. You realise that an R5 1600 will perform very similar to an 8 core R8 1800X in gaming ? Even more so at 4K. Maybe you should do a bit more research before spouting off on here. Also it is funny how you are calling my build unbalanced yet you suggested a 12 core cpu with a RX 560 earlier when the op specifically said he wants to game at 1440p or 4K.
