You can get the 2600x for 132. (From ebuyer)

Is that better than the 2700?


Yes. Higher bench in almost every way, 2C 4T lower but in real world applications won't make any difference.

Ryzen 7 2700 would be better future proofed with the extra cores/threads and uses less power. Would also probably outperform the 2600x if you overclock it. Positives and negatives for both.

It will outperform the 2600x when clocked but would then also be more power hungry similar to the 2600x so you're negating one bonus for another, in real world comparison they are almost exactly the same, with the 2600x edging out on a wider variety of tasks. I don't feel like the 2700 is any more future proof than the 2600x.

In a gaming sense - games don't even take advantage of hyper threading so having the extra cores for gaming doesn't really account for much. The 2700 does have a better cooler so that should be considered.

For people running heavy amounts of software and video encoding/ rendering then the 2700 is straight up better because you'll be using the extra threads.

I do music production so single core performance is more important. Guessing the 2600x is better then.

Single core performance is about 10% higher than the 2700, yes. It also has a higher clock speed thanks to being overclocked from box - 3.6Ggz vs 3.2Ghz.

Thanks. What about considering for a new build the Tomahawk Max + 3600 combo deal that's on here for £220 ish, versus getting a mobo and the 2600x separate?

edit: actually £242 hotukdeals.com/dea…466

I have bought a £72 asrock b450 pro4, so taking £72 off that makes it £170 for the 3600 which isn't that much off to be honest.

The 3600 is a monster though and you'll be wanting the tomahawk max for ease of installation. The mobo and CPU deal is really good tbh. If you're looking at gaming then the 3rd gen ryzen were designed for that.

If you just want your music production stick with the 2600x.

It's £125 at lots of places at the moment not sure why you'd go for that price.

I was speaking purely from ebuyer ebay store perspective. The lowest I can see it is £129.97 on laptops direct but they also charge for delivery making it closer to £130.

Thing is, music production needs low latency and as high as possible single core performance. The 2xxx had issues with recording for music production, well documented. 3600 is actually better. I might go for it you know.

If you are sure that you want really fast single core performance why wouldn't you go intel? Even the old I5 processors have higher single core performance than a lot of these Ryzen chips.

The I5-9600K is probably £150 on ebay store today from one of the retailers and is in the top 20 fastest single core performers. The Ryzen 3600 is fractionally higher but is also more expensive.

If you're staying Ryzen I would recommend 3600.
