Thanks!

With this price drop I can afford to buy some maltesers aswell as the CPU!

3600 is very close here

or just buy the Ryzen 5 3600


I bought this over the 3600 as I plan to keep it a good few years. I think the extra cores will come into good use later down the line when the new consoles launch. Thought it was worth it in the long run over the IPC gain of the 3600.
If your primary focus is content creation then this is a good CPU.
If you want a gaming rig, pick up the 3600 for the IPC gains and faster clock speed.

Plus better RAM support/MHz. I owned 3x 2700X, bought one at launch, another mid 2018 and one at end. None could do 32GB at higher than 3333MHz, but Zen2 can do upto 3800MHz. I've had 5x Zen2 and all reached 3733MHz and only 2x 3800MHz.

TBH my R5 3600 with PBO+150MHz using 105W CPU PPT/TDC/EDC is about ~10% behind on a stock R7 2700X in things like CB15/20. TBH in encoding it's not that much of a difference either.

is this gen 2?

It isn't Zen 2. It's a revision of Zen 1. So, if by 'gen' you mean Zen core generation (which you almost certainly do), then no. It isn't.

Update with extra info: This is manufactured on the 12nm Zen+ process node, not the latest 7nm Zen 2 process node.

Yes you can OC a 2700 to 2700x levels but you need a 3rd party cooler to do that. If you don't have one (so added cost buying one) maybe just get a 2700x and use it at stock with the stock cooler and have done with it.

Not sure either chip is worth it for low to middle of the range gaming. I would say the dirty word and go intel.

Absolutely for content and other workstation uses, I wouldn't go intel at the moment, but when the i3 9100f is £80-£100 cheaper than the 2700x or 3600 (currently it's £65-70) and gaming performance is very similar. In some benchmarks the 9100f can even get a few extra FPS. The price difference just isn't worth it for lower end gaming.

Is this really true though?

youtube.com/wat…Mdc

From what I can tell the i3 has damned awful 1% lows. Take the Witcher 3

i3 9100f 0.1% low: 11fps
2600 0.1% low: 30 fps

And for Assassins Creed the 0,1% low of the i3 is 33 at points but the 2600 doesn't seem to drop below 50

What do you think? Maybe the 9100f is a nice buy for some, but I've found even a small amount of choppiness in game is really distracting. I'd rather play with worse textures on a console with a smooth consistent fps than extremes! But maybe these benches are isolated, I'm not sure.


Also guys AMD have a promotion ATM the 2700x comes the borderlands 3, the Ryzen 3600 does not.

Sell code on eBay for 20 makes this even cheaper. Just order from amazon not the 3rd party seller.

Can’t disagree- i3 9100f is 4c/4t so in 2020 that’s a no if you want any decent gaming experience. People often confuse FPS with smoothness and quality of gaming.

I'm so confused with what's the best
I want to build a system that's will last a few years before having to upgrade again, will be mainly used for basic processes but a bit of gaming in between (most likely FIFA and a few shooters) I want to be able to play in ultra settings no problem

I was looking at the following:

- Ryzen 2700x
- Asus ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming ATX AM4 Motherboard
- Gigabyte Radeon RX 580 8GB AORUS

Swap out the X470 for a cheaper b450 MSI tomahawk MAX motherboard. Spend the extra cash on a 1660 super. You will get much better performance.

Future proofing... buy cutting edge, its old hat after 2 years. On this platform ddr4.
Buy 16gb ram, the best gpu you can afford and a ryzen 3600 /2600.

Itll be old in a couple of years anyway. Tech gains will move faster due to competition between the main manufacturers again. Not like the relaitive stagnation we have had not too long ago.

I'd just get a 16gb 2x8gb kit of 3000mhz ram, the cheapest stuff from a decent brand, something like the link below. Ram is the last place I'd spend money as the difference in high speed ram for the price increase is negligible in most use cases.

I wouldn't worry AMD have just launched the 5600xt with 6gb of ram and that's fine. The 1660 super will still blow the 580 out of the water now and in the future despite a 2gb of ram deficit.

Appreciated, you've saved me abit of money!

Final thing though, if you know, Ryzen 5 3600x vs Ryzen 7 2700x - any huge differences. I hear (read) conflicting views...
Also, the stock fan that comes with the CPU Fan (Prism) worth keeping or selling... might need to do my own personal research on this I guess...

Depends what you are doing. The 3600x will get you more fps in games and a lower power consumption. But I have personally just had this exact dilemma myself and I opted to go for the 2700x. I feel that the extra cores will come in more useful in more workloads in the future for every task including gaming. Also I would not be buying anything with less than 8 cores at the moment, especially if 8 cores are cheaper. With the new upcoming consoles using 8 core 16 thread CPUs, games will becoming more optimised for more cores and threads. I'm running my 2700x with a 2070 super and it just destroys everything at 1440p max settings. I'm using the prism, it's fine.

You're the 'person'! This is exactly why I considered the 2700x vs 3600x
I don't think I'd need the 2070 GPU at this stage, particularly as I'm a casual gamer at best.

You can always upgrade the 1660 super in the future. The 2700x will still be going strong in 5 years. Some people are still gaming on the i7 2700k from about 10 years ago and still doing fine 😃

It is like comparing oranges and pineapples. this one cost £152 and 9100f cost £66....
For the budget setup 9100f is perfect, for the same price you can only get ryzen 3 1400.... and it is much more slower then 9100f

This whole thread isn't about the price of the i3 9100f, it's about this comment made earlier by Rain Man

'but when the i3 9100f is £80-£100 cheaper than the 2700x or 3600 (currently it's £65-70) and gaming performance is very similar.'


It appears that the 0.1 and 1% lows on the 9100f are far poorer than the 2700x and it has lower averages. They are no very similar, unless a 0.1% low of 11fps is acceptable compared to a low of 30/40fps/ That's the difference between smooth gameplay and stuttering

I have ryzen 5 1400, thing to note is It can be overclocked on the cheapest Asrock b450m - HDV motherboard with stock cooler. I overclocked mine from 3.2 to 3.8gHz, stock voltage, cnq enabled, cpu and vrm temperatures didn't even move.
I3 may be faster, but I'm not sure I'd wanna swap it.
