Why would you not just get the 3400g for £121, currently on Aria?


Half the core count and slower is a good reason

Likely to be further reductions on black friday? Unless the game promotion will have ended by then

Fair enough, going off this seems like most operations will be same on both. cpu.userbenchmark.com/Com…156

Secondly, I don't game much, so I'd need a separate GPU for the already more expensive 2700.
Sure if you don’t want discrete graphics and you’re not going to use the cores then 3400g is the right choice. But for anyone doing heavy desktop work or gaming the 2700 and 3400g aren’t in the same league.

If you don't game, you will be fine with a 3400g.
Thanks!

Even on your link, average user bench for the 2700 is 14-20% higher.

Real world performance is more important than hypothetical scores every day of the week.

My point is that for most people the 3400g represents better value for money, and if not gaming or super heavy task usage, they are like for like.

Genuinely interested in other benchmarks/comparisons? As you can tell, this isn't my strong point.

If you use your computer for light tasks like office and browsing the web then yes it's definitely better. Like you said, you'd save on the GPU.

However, if you already have a GPU, then the 2700 has double the core count for only twenty quid difference which is absolutely massive value.

It really depends on your specific usage.

Why not just get the 3200G or i3-9100 then? Both are 'better value' by the same metric and being quad-cores will be ample for non-gaming, standard workflows? The Ryzen 7 2700 is a phenomenal CPU for the money.
Alrighty then, I'll swan on out of these comments.
Honestly this CPU almost kills the entire Ryzen 3000 lineup. Sure the 3700x might be 30% faster but if you're not aiming for for high refresh 1080p this is the CPU to get. 8 cores at this price at that power draw. This is the value king of any castle. You could even put it in an x570 board and grab a used 3900x in a year or so after the 4000 series launches.
Black friday will surely see this CPU drop to record low prices.
TDP is only 65W on this
Holy cr*p, prices for these 2nd gen Ryzen are coming down like crazy the last few weeks.
Curious what Black Fridays going to bring, son wants to upgrade to AM4 and still needs a CPU.
