much older intel equivalent are twice as better for gaming


Completly correct, look at this bench mark below... oh wai.. 8700k is £330+39616184-UMMzm.jpg
bobo5307/01/2020 17:42

I said "equivalent". I never talk about money, that is irrelevant.


Accept it mate you've been shot down in flames. "Equivalent" is similar priced item. Like with Like. In which case Intel are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY behind. And you HAVE to talk about money or you'd match a Ferrari with a Robin Reliant
And I'm an Intel user.

So unless you already have an old intel motherboard laying around are you suggesting people should buy an Intel platform years old with no upgrade path going forward over this? Or are you just stating the facts. Because stating the facts is one thing, suggesting people go out and buy it is another.

I am stating the fact and the newer one are at least 3 times as better than this one (for gaming).
Can we stop benchmarking CPUs with gaming please and use single and mutli core performance results? Thanks

What about multicore productivity though? I'm talking for the same price which I'm assuming would be an Intel core i3. Not everyone is a gamer.

So is an i3 8100 better for gaming then. Genuine question as this is Intel's £109 part.

Ok then, what is the intel CPU you are comparing it to?
Pfft ignore the trolls. Intel may have comparable parts available but buying AMD means buying AM4 means buying into a highly upgradeable platform. If the 2600 suits your budget now but you want better gaming perf later and already have a good GPU, move up to 3xxxx series when funds allow. Intel platform is a dead end with an apparent performance ceiling that Intel are having real trouble escaping.

Edit: Good price! If it goes under £100 the much lauded 1600 AF won't look so hot any more.

I just like playing along, it's fun 😃
Crazy to go Intel and have less cores for more money. Even if youre a gamer you probably dont only game. You might video edit or stream at some point.
Edited by: "andytomlins" 7th Jan
That's great CPU for the money, and the sad truth is that Intel don't have anything that could compete at given price point. Also gaming cpu Benchmarks are bad thing most of the time as author's of the test do whatever they can to reduce overall system bottleneck, ex. use fastest possible ram, super fast NVME ssd, best possible GPU etc. Things that no one would have in pc powered by this cpu...

To be fair you can get a 9100 for £68

Can you, though that was the 9100f?
I have been thinking of getting this cpu but as a none gamer what vga card would i get to go with it ? i dont need a flash exspensive card
It is the f yeah but it's a 9100, just without integrated gfx.
Very good for £68.
I think the 8400 and 9400 compete with the 2600 but the 9400 is about £20 more but slightly faster.
Got an 8400 and 2600x myself. So I'm no fanboy
I was going to put a 9700k in the Intel pc but now looks like I'll put a 3800x in the AMD one instead.

I've always seen the F parts as an equivalent to AMDs APUs though (Price wise). So I'd put the 3200g as the rival to the 9100F. Still I wouldn't buy anything unless it had at least 4 cores 8 threads at the absolute bare minimum. 6 cores 12 threads been reasonable.

That completely depends on your budget to be honest, and whether or not you're happy buying a second hand card or if you want a brand new card.

I recently put together a system for when I travel around and for when I occasionally go to Lan parties. It has a Ryzen 5 2600, 16GB RAM and an Nvidia GTX 960 4GB.

The 960 cost me £50 delivered off eBay and handles pretty much any game at 1080p medium/high settings at 60fps with the odd exception (Red dead 2 for example)

Push the budget a bit to £90/£100 and an AMD RX570 could be had which will offer roughly 70% more performance than a 960.

Sorry - just read you don't plan on gaming at all, in which case you can pick up an Ati 2400 off cex for £3

It only has VGA and DVI outputs, if you require hdmi then you'll need to push the boat out to about £8 for this

I wouldn't buy one but for the money it's a fast CPU.
I've got a much older quadcore and that's still ok. So I'd imagine the 9100 still does fine.

It probably does but there isn't even hyperthreading giving you just 4 cores 4 threads for this price. Intel really need to step up the core count at the low end. They will have no choice but to get out some of that unlimited cash reserve soon though and compete for our £££ as AMD seem to be slapping them about at the moment, and the only intel part of buy is the 9900k. But still I'd rather just get the 3900x

A bit like all of your comments. How is an older Intel 2x better and a new one 3x?

Like it or not your Intel shares have taken a hit and will continue to do so.
Excellent for the money. I built an editing rig with this processor about 6 months ago, seems to be really decent.
Following on from the suggestion above to get a Radeon 2400 purely as an adapter, they're very old now. Better to try and get a low end Radeon 54xx or 64xx for that job.
if you pair a 2600 with an RTX 2060 or a 9999999K with the same GPU there wont be any difference.
There is only difference in CPU performance with a 2080ti or similar (when you are not so GPU bottlenecked).

It is still better value than the 3600 and has an upgradable path for the future without changing mobo

3 times better? Please show me gaming benchmarks that show new intel CPUs performing 3 times better than a ryzen 2600 in gaming.

You should quit while your behind.
Below is a link to a Hardware Unboxed CPU comparison.Definatly not 3 times better.

AF vs AE is older CPU but fabbed on 12nm process , thus gaining many of the advantages of the 2600

3200G and 2600 have almost identical single thread speed. Depends if you need more cores.

You might be better off with some basic over clocking. A mild one is possible even with stockcooler.
