For all you IT experts out there, what’s the % uplift in ipc to 2600?
Price is RRP

For all you IT experts out there, what’s the % uplift in ipc to 2600?


Varies per application but around 12-18%
this or 2700? Seem similar in the benchmarks I've looked at and can get the 2700 slightly cheaper. Suppose power use will be lower on the newer chip.
If you only need a 3.2GHz version they are £75 + whatever import charges you get to pay, on Aliexpress.

This unless the 2700 is a stupid low cost. similar sort of multi threaded results but single threaded this will be much better with that 15% average increase.
The 2600 can be had now for just £116 on Aria PC. Insane Value and you save £70 over buying a 3600, compelling choice if you want to save some £££
why is this hot? why is this a deal? it is £189.99 everywhere!
can someone recommend a board for this?

MSI B450 Tomahawk has very good reviews and is just £90. It supports BIOS Flashback so you can update the BIOS without needing a CPU since the BIOS must be updated to support this CPU

I found this video helpful to get my PC noob head around the new chips vs others

Because people think it's a good deal, even if it's the same price everywhere.
It's worth posting as a deal because this is an insanely good price performance and being brand new its very possible supplies will sell out fast. It is, on paper at least, faster than the Ryzen 7 2700 for the same price. The 2700 should in theory start to lower in price so you have to pick your poison.

I just ordered this from CCL because I'm putting a rig together and assuming stocks might be low I'm getting in now even if it is RRP.

About 20% in most CPU tasks as far as I can see. techpowerup.com/256…nce

The 2700 is actually slower in some benchmarks than the 2600X and others below it because even though it has more cores it runs at a slower clock speed and so I would go for this 3600.

why is the 1800x still £218 on Amazon lol ??

Again, you are cofusing "deal" with "value". Is this cpu a great value? yes, absolutely!

Is it a good deal? No, its not a deal!

What is a deal? Something less than RRP? Then what's the point of voting?
Ebuyer now listing this.
$199 dolars = £158.98, anything above that is a rip off to UK conumsers.

did you forget the 20% VAT?

159.98 x 1.2 = 189

There isn't a 3.2Ghz chip in the Zen 2 lineup? Unless you mean the R5 15/1600 which are not simply 3.2GHz versions of this CPU.
I still have the £10 code for when they canceled my 2700 order..

hmm

America doesn't include sales tax in its price


Still rip off Britian since America pays 0-10% sales tax (average is 8%)
We pay 20%

ok Norse


Sounds like sarcasm also are you joking? You seriously think they will higher the VAT because of the B word..

I would riot
In USA it's much lower, some states don't even have it, they're not in EU, weve survived hundreds of years without them, heck we used to rule their countries lol

It's the EU what forces countries to have a VAT me
