The New AMD 3rd Generation Ryzen CPU LineupThe new AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs have arrived boasting higher performance gains over its predecessor lineup. With higher speeds, more memory and wider bandwidth the new Ryzen CPUs look to improve on and upgrade the way you relax, work and play. The AMD Ryzen 5 3600 processor includes 6 CPU Cores with 12 threads and a base clock of 3.6GHz that can be boosted to 4.2GHz. The new CPU's are backwards compatible with older motherboards thanks to the same AM4 slot socket however with the newly released chipset of X570 motherboards you can maximize the power the Ryzen CPUs have to offer. Support for DDR4 Memory continues but with the new Ryzen CPUs comes the new PCIe 4.0 Version which has improved the speeds of which your PCIe components such as graphics cards and some storage solutions communicate with the motherboard.

Too much for too little gain over 2600

The IPC improvement is actually insane. If you're not playing games then yeah, it's probably not worth the extra ~£70 over the 2600, but it's only going that low because it got so demolished by its own successor.

This or the 3700
According to the reviews, there isn’t much in it between the 3600, 3600x, 3700 and 3700x (for gaming anyway), so I bought the 3600 last night.

I was thinking of maybe going for the 2600x , as it was £60-£70 cheaper than the 3600 and the 3600 is only about 15% better.
I think the 2600x will be enough for my needs anyway tbh, but the gap is down to £50 now.

Too much for too little gain over 2600
Whenever I upgrade I always look around the £200 Mark. Had an i6 6600k, and an rx 580 for 3 years bought both for around £200 each. Now have the vega 56 and ryzen 3600, again both bought for around £200 hence why I went for the 3600 over the 3700. I always think if I paid £300 each for a cpu/gpu, I would prob still look to upgrade every 3 years so may aswell save the cash for next time..

I've got this processor along with an XT5700 and it's one of the best combos when making a sub £1k build

Huge gains in minimum fps, I'd argue that it's a pretty solid £70 upgrade for any PC.

Same man, got an XT and this, did the build 2 months ago for £700 and it cuts through anything.

Maybe at 1080p the gains might be considered good but not at 1440p where it's 5-10% max. Hardly worth 70 quid
I'll probably pick this up next year. I believe it's still compatible with the B350 motherboards.

It is but I had massive issues with my Asrock board. Constant boot loops. By then the BIOSes might be sorted better though. Ended up swapping to an Asus board which worked fine after a BIOS update.

I feel you man, at 1440p it's a small bump. I mean a
2600 + XT
will always be a better option than a
3600 + Vega 56/1660Ti
So in that sense, spend dat 70 on a card.
But if someone has cash for an XT and 3600, heh, why not
i was almost ready to get the 2600/2600x but is it worth paying a bit more for this ? this will be with a GTX1080 GPU , whats peoples thoughts .

Ah that's good to know, I've got an Asus B350 Prime plus, they seem to regularly update the BIOS so I'll just make sure I update mine again. AMD seems to be keeping to their word about AM4 as a platform.

1080 is still better than a 1660ti and is similar performance to a 2060 super.
i am aware of that , the quesrtion was is it worth the extra for the 3600 or save £70 and get 2600X ?

Save £70. Or spend that extra £70 and upgrade the 1080 to a 5700 XT
i already have a 1080 as i stated
sorry miss read that , is there much of an increase over a 1080 if i was to upgrade gpu was looking at a 2070 super.

Choose this over the 2600 - £70 spread over the year (at least) that you'll use it, works out to naff-all.

And I'd hold onto your 1080 for another year - The 2070 Super only really brings ray-tracing to your otherwise top-end system. Keep saving your pennies and see what Q1/2 2020 offers.

ok thanks
Shame about the included cooler, they should ditch the Wraith Stealth.
Out of stock at this price, though.

Do you mind if I ask the specs? £700 seems really cheap for an XT build.
Was thinking about buying this with a rtx 2070 super. Gaming at 1440p 144hz when possible. Think that combo will be able to last for 3-4 years before I upgrade to the presumable rtx 4000 series

Heyy man. I'm looking at doing a similar build. Do you know roughly what you spent on each item? I was looking at ~£800 build but that was a vega 56 instead of an xt.

Anyone with actual experience with a Ryzen that’s PCie 4.0 compatible if it makes a lot of difference with a compatible motherboard and m2 storage rated at PCie 4.0 ? Is there any other bottlenecks that would hold it up? Ram?

I wasn't planning on OCing and therefore investing much in cooling, so I went for a MSI 450b Gaming Plus. It has 2 RAM slots, plus an M2 slot, which is all I needed on a mobo.

I briefly looked at reviews for pci4 M2 storage, they were no faster than the existing stuff apparently

I think for the premium for X570 is better spent on a GPU? it seems easy enough with am4 to upgrade the mb later if you suddenly need pci4 support
Still on a i7 920 just bought a xeon 5675 to see what more I can squeeze out of it

Save £70. Or spend that extra £70 and upgrade the 1080 to a 5700 XT


Get the 3600 over the 2600 any day of the week runs well better I have the same combo as you 1080 and this from a 2600 my fps is now avarage 30 fps better
