It's not relative when one online retailer offers delivery for free and the other is £11.50, around 6% of the items cost.

The key words were "Online retailer" and "offers delivery". Those two are equal from CCL to OC. It is not relative. One is objectively more expensive than the other and you throwing in 2 other shops does not change that fact.

Absolutely not! It's practically the same processor with the same 6 cores, just a newer version. Maybe slightly better IPC but nothing you would see in every day use.

Considering the previous 2600 was down to around £120-£140 on the better deals this needs to be a LOT better to justify costing over £50 more IMHO...

The i5-9600K is faster at gaming than the Ryzen 3600, at current prices the Ryzen 2600 for £125 or a second hand i5-8400 (£130-£140) offers far more performance per pound than the latest AMD processors.

The Ryzen 3700X though kills the i7-8700/i7-9700 for value, probably the pick of the lot if you need 8 core chip for production work.

It doesnt matter what it costs compared to the old CPU (which is no longer being made) Its how much it costs compared to current competition.
It destroys the comparative Intel cpu £ for £ so as buyers we have the choice. Zen+ or Zen2.
Every review ive seen is saying the same. The new chips are awesome. And the old are a bit less awesome but stupid cheap.

Would argue it does on a deals site! Bang for buck definitely favours the older 2000 series at the moment, barely matters that more aren't being made, there is still huge stocks out there. The 2600 in particular has been on offer seemingly forever suggesting retailers have more than enough. I put together a 2600 build over 6 months ago and it was pretty well discounted even back then!

For non gaming definitely the Ryzen 3700X kills it, for gaming even the i5-9400F which cost £145 new can beat the Ryzen 3600 for less, the i5-8600/9600K at £225 will destroy the Ryzen 3600X in gaming even at stock frequencies.

The 2600 is still a great cpu, just OC it a bit, 4.1Ghz is easy to attain. 4.2 on mine is a no go though without very high voltage, lost the silicone lottery.

What do you mean?


People said the same about the i5 7600k Vs Ryzen 5 1600x at launch, fast forward a couple of years and it's a different story.

In 2 years time games will be using every core and thread available, at which point the Ryzen will close the gap Vs current i5, plus it won't be a dead socket

So your choice is i5 150fps Vs Ryzen 130fps today

And in 2 years time the i5s will be around the same FPS as Ryzen with huge drops stutters as 0.1 lows will be horrific, just my 2p

I think everyone agrees that 4core 4 core threads is done, won't be long till 6 core 6 threads is considered bottom of the recommended list, as 8 core 16 threads and above is becoming mainstream, and looks like the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett will have 8 core 16 thread too

I agree get the faster cores, but the i5 9600k now makes no sense, it's £225 and needs a £50 cooler, has 6 cores and 6 threads.

The Ryzen 5 3600 is £190 ready to go and has DOUBLE the threads, it's a no brainer, if you are building a new system from scratch it is not possible to really recommend a £275 total i5 Vs £190 Ryzen 5 when that £85 difference could be the difference between getting a GTX 1660 or a RTX 2060 for example.

Unless you have deep pockets and have the monitor and the eyesight to tell the difference between say 134 Vs 146fps in 2019 titles and will be upgrading again in 2 years time, cos at that point the Ryzen will overturn the difference.

Intel are doomed at this point, they need a new gen ASAP, and they need to price it right and support it like AM4 has been

Also I'll add I don't feel sorry for Intel, they gave AMD a pasting during the Bulldozer years, and instead of building on it they got greedy.

I'm not an AMD fan, but I am happy for them Ryzen has been amazing and has pushed the realms of PCs for everyone, no longer are we stuck on

I would definitely sell it, simply as the Intel prices are crazy second hand on eBay, so you can actually move to more cores, more threads, same IPC and make a profit in some cases

£220+ £25 is still £245 Vs £190 with double the threads

I5 9400f + h310 is great value in 2019, I'd still rather have a R5 2600 + b450 all day long. If your buying either of those set ups, your not going to a RTX 2080ti, therefore are going to be GPU bound pretty much all the time, and the Ryzen will age better

I agree they do win in 2019 with older and current games, but like I said AVG 142 Fps Vs 134 makes little to no difference, but going forward the Ryzen will overtake. It's like the cheaper Kaby Lake i5s Vs Ryzen at launch, ahead at the time and now crippled going forward

For me, personally, considering VALUE, which incorporates power draw, productivity, gaming, socket lifespan, everything, I think Intel has basically just become a niche product, Ryzen is where it's at
