Approx £500-600 for a small form factor PC that has an xbox logo,it'l be on the same software as the Xbone (Xbox one). As for the "blue-ray" drive it is practically obsolete. Most content that is watched is from online source's like netflix etc even games rarely use blue ray disc's as it only contains part of the game (for some games not all) and still ask's to install onto the console and then follow's up with a large download before you can play it. So honestly if you wanted a 4K gaming machine in a small form factor that is easily put to one side this can be done and is upgradable at a later date with parts you wish rather than what microsoft/sony tell you that is coming in the next refresh of their consoles.
The following post contains videos taken from StoneMountain64's Youtube account because I dont have premium to access the CTE to get you some video footage. These are only 2 of the 4 maps coming in march for the They shall not pass DLC
Funny you should mention that Pale because I have a video of some hands on testing adept be it at a convention/show of the R7 1700 going against an intel chip, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rUndzpdo1I With this the guy can actually see the core clocks etc of both chips and has full information about the mobo,ram etc. More benchmarks should be arriving in the week or so as March 2nd is Ryzen release date
Well since the reviewers samples are now making it out in the wild I thought I would fine a few benchmarks etc of Ryzen that compares it to the more expensive company (Intel) and the results make for some interesting reading I'l post what i have found so far for you to read. http://wccftech.com/amd-ryzen-1600x-cinebench-r15-performance-confirmed/ The first graph is the $250 1600x ryzen (mid tier depending on your budget), it would have been nice to see the $400-$600 1800x in the benchmarks which from all reports and leaks so far have claimed it is going to be on par or slightly better than the $1000 intel 6900k but even so the ryzen 1600x is punching alot higher up the intel food chain that I thought it could, it is also nice to see that AMD have worked on reducing the TDP on their chips aswell as single core/thread work load. Edit: Just found this nice bit of information/benchmarks on the 1700x ryzen, Dates for the information above their respective links 12th of feb http://hothardware.com/news/amds-ryzen-7-1700x-delivers-i7-6900k-performance-at-bargain-price 21st of feb http://www.forbes.com/sites/antonyleather/2017/02/21/amd-ryzen-7-1700x-performance-leak-faster-than-intel-core-i7-5960x/#69809f7662fe 21st of feb http://www.game-debate.com/news/22352/3dmark-benchmarks-leak-for-389-amd-ryzen-r7-1700x-intel-thrashed-on-price-to-performance 21st of feb http://wccftech.com/amd-ryzen-7-1700x-processor-tested/
