With the launch of Intel's B360 chipset, the price difference between a Coffee Lake and Ryzen system have been much reduced; in part because RAM and GPU will account for the vast majority of your expenses.  TechSpot tested the Ryzen 5 1600 against an i5-8400 on a B360 motherboard, as well as a Z370 to show the difference between those two chipsets.  Overall, the results came out in a tie, with AMD's chip better at tasks which benefit from multithreading while Intel's topped out when gaming. 

Of course, we are quickly approaching the arrival of Ryzen 2, which may change things drastically.

"Before the incoming 2nd-gen Ryzen parts arrive this shootout will let us establish how AMD and Intel currently stack up with all the latest Windows updates, BIOS updates, driver updates and new motherboards we have on hand, giving us an up to date reference point for the new CPUs."

Good new on Open land for Khronos and LLVM/SPIR-V Translator that's great for many computing languages that can make use of GPUs for compute and graphics on Vulkan.

"The SPIRV-LLVM-Translator allows taking Vulkan/OpenCL SPIR-V and translating it into native LLVM IR for consumption by the diverse components in the LLVM ecosystem. Likewise, you can go from the LLVM intermediate representation and output to SPIR-V for consumption then by SPIR-V/Vulkan drivers. This bi-directional translator opens up SPIR-V to a range of interesting new options." (1)
