Seems a bit high scene I paid £148 recently from ebay/ccl but there possiblly going up like ssds just now
I've not been looking again until recently tbh. I thought it was a good deal for the X variant.
Got mine from Currys/PC World last week for £159
"The Ryzen 7 2700X has the highest multiprocessing performance you can get on a mainstream desktop PC"

Seriously?
They jumped in price this weekend the non x was 140 now much higher
I don't have a time machine but it was much cheaper many times

Agreed. A few months back, a Ryzen 3600x was listed for around £149. I own the CPU, that’s a steal for it
Not really a deal though 😃
6 zen 2 cores can match 8 zen 1 cores, so meh. Not to mention the much better memory support, and (even) lower power usage.

I would pick a 3600(x, if you can get it for not much more) over this.
3700x only £199

Correct me if I’m wrong but would a good cooler on a 3600 be cheaper than the 3600X?
Cold paid £145 a few months back for my daughter and it's to close in price to a Zen2 CPU. It's about 3600X money and although the 2700X has 4 more cores the 3600X is just better in every way.
Guys a bit of help. My boy wants to upgrade his pc processor. Currently has Ryzen 3 1300x on a b450 gaming plus MB. Looking for a tidy upgrade around this price. I’m not a huge tech head, what’s the x variants? fitting seams straight forward (do I need to update MB bios) Thanks

The X are clocked slightly higher out of the box meaning they're slightly faster at stock speeds. The differences aren't huge though and most of the time you can overclock the non-X variant to match the X version. If you don't know what overclocking is don't worry about it, the differences are minimal.

With a B450 all the 2000 series Ryzens should work fine without a bios update, if you get a 3000 series you will need to update the bios.

The 3600 is probably the one to go for.
But if the X version isn't much more then go for that.
I have the 2600x and the cooler is better on x versions. Many say the wraith stealth that comes with the non X isn't great and end up buying another cooler.
So in the end that would cost the same as the X but then you'd have to oc it to get same speed.
Looking to upgrade from an i5-6600 in a new ITC build. Would I see a noticeable improvement in Cities: Skylines with this? Or any other Ryzen processor?

Brilliant thanks guys(y) . I think he already has a non stock fan. I won’t bother with the x variants then. Just got to decide on the 2700 or 3600. And see hoe hard it is to update bios if I go for the latter.

You'll see a frame rate difference and you'll not get any stutters but if you're current CPU runs everything reasonably well I'd hold off until the new ryzen's appear and prices drop.
Then you can upgrade to something really meaty like a 3700/3800x and pay a lot less money.

Outside of gaming below 1080p, there won't be much difference between the 2700x and 3600x, also in a lot of productivity task the 2700x constantly beats the 3600x by a big margin.

The 2700x also comes with a better cooler

You may need to update your BIOS on that particular MB depending on the Ryzen CPU you choose to upgrade to. Ensure you are confident in doing that if it's needed.

Otherwise, the easiest upgrade is GPU but on that small budget and possibly your 1300x as a bottleneck, you may also hit limits. What GPU do you have?

It's too much though at £175.. it's usually much lower , as is the 3600.
Better off waiting for prices to drop to normal levels.

With the R3 1300X, if you go beyond the GTX 1060 or RX 580 you get diminishing returns.

Unfortunately, RX 580 is only a 10% increased clock speed compared to RX 480 and you're paying £150.

If you get anything above the stated models, you'll still see better performance but just not AS good when paired with a faster GPU.

You have a good mobo, I think, look up upgrading the BIOS :)) Then you can buy a nicer CPU for gaming (the one in the OP ain't that great deal tbh) and later on, a better GPU.

Cheers I'll have a go at the bios. What reasonably priced CPU do you recommend? That's will give a reasonable upgrade.

That 1300X cpu you have is worse than a i5-4690 (released 2014) in gaming, and is definetely a bottleneck.

Best value for money combo upgrade FOR YOU would be Ryzen 2600 + GTX 1660 Super.
Avoid Radeon 5xxx XT series, will give you headaches.

If you could dig deeper for money, I would get a 2700 + RTX 2070.

Ryzen 3600 performs better, Is Zen 2 not Zen+, and cheaper. So why should anyone buy 2700 even x ?
