Has this been cheaper?
Best value processor at the moment. Only 15% slower than the 3600 but about a little more than half the price.
I've been looking at these as an upgrade from an old i5. I don't think they are much cheaper at the moment. Also checked ebay 2nd hand and they aren't going cheap enough to be worth it.

Don't forget black friday coming up. Good chance they will be cheaper, so i'll hang on awhile.

For gaming the processor may only be 15 % faster but its the drops in fps which is the main difference between the 2. The 3600 is far more stable. Which is worth the extra in my opinion.

I doubt you will have much difference in drops between both of them.

If you are coming from an i7 3rd gen or soemthing then yes, its a huge difference but between the 2 Ryzens 2nd and 3rd gen, i dont think the lows will be any different.

I have a Ryzen 5 2600 and processor utilisation in games across 6 cores is usually 25-30% at 1440p and everything is quite fluid. So am sure the Ryzen 2600 will be fine for a few years.

I went from an overclocked 2500k & 16Gb DDR3, to the 2600X & 16Gb DDR4 3000Mhz, to the 3700X & 32Gb DDR4 3600Mhz...

The difference in processing performance was clear, but it was the tighter ram timings and giving myself more overhead that really made the difference.

...worth every single penny.

I've looked at some gaming benchmarks comparing the 2, and I mean real world testing. From what I can see you might get up to 10fps more in some games. Not worth the extra £70

It was £99 on Prime Day IIRC but only for students
£106.38 at aria pc but no game pass.

This is bs... you literally couldnt tell the difference of them ram speeds unless youre some kinda android :/

10 fps for 70 quid is the cheapest 10 fps youll ever get on a cpu... still its bs cpus dont really net more fps. Graphics cards is what gets you fps

Too much for little gain. You have to consider if the CPU is causing a bottleneck too.
The 2600 is better value and cheaper, the 3600 performs better but costs quite a bit more, just depends on your budget both are great choices.

Hardly "bs".
If I had the time to post up benchmarking scores, or upload the recordings of my typical workflow, then you'd see the same.

...but I don't.
Bechmarks are nothing... in a game or working youd never notice the difference. People go on like ram speeds are the omega. Literally clueless people. There would be no real world gains at all.

Some games can see double digit percentage gains by manual tuning and/or overclocking. Decreasing ram latency will also help with the general responsiveness of your PC. If you're argument is there's no noticeable difference then what is your minimum difference to be noticed? Personally I was surprised at how big a difference it made to performance.
How much of a difference will this be from an i3 7100? Ive started video editing and recently upped my ram to 16gb but i seem to get cpu throttled

Oh, there's no comparison. 2600 would be far superior.
