Bargain! Had a notification early morning about the PETAL10 code but code wasn't available then
I love my 2700x- it eats up any games/tasks i throw at it.
This or a £114 2600x for gaming money value wise?

2700 or 2700X. The extra £20-30 are more than justified.
Plenty of games already using 8 cores.

Between the two, purely for FPS the 2600x is slightly better value for money as the chips offer up roughly the same performance. If the saving allows you to get a better GPU then that's priority for gaming but if not then the 2700x is perhaps the 'longer term' option given the price difference is not huge.

Thank you for the reply, I've already gotten a GPU being the RX 580 Nitro+ for now as I'm only a casual gamer though I'm looking to upgrade in a few months. Is a 2600x good enough for that or should I jump onto a 2700x or 2700

I would invest slightly more and go for the 3600 if you're gaming only. That's the best value gaming chip out there right now.

The IPC improvements on the Zen2 series justifies the extra cost over Zen+

If i owned a 6c/12t 3600 i bet i would need to upgrade it before i would my 8c/16t 2700x. Already now in MP games i sometimes i see my CPU at 62% usage while gaming. Over 50% means all 8 physical cores of my 2700x are busy and its using SMT.
If buying new go 8c/16t in 2020 onwards if you want any sort of longevity.

I'm sorry but that information is completly wrong on so many levels.

The IPC improvements alone on the 3600 make it the better buy for gaming, you're going to be hard limited by your GPU way before you're going to be CPU limited. Even the new 3080TI around the corner will still be the bottleneck 3600, we're not even close to touching 6c/12t in gaming.

I respect this wont change your mind but hey, I feel I need to point that out to stop people making the mistake of getting Zen+ over Zen2 for strictly gaming.

Agreed, that's why I went for the 2700x over the 3600. More cores over higher IPC as the new consoles are going to be utilizing 8 core 16 thread CPUs. Will only mean more games taking advantage of more cores and threads. Plus I use my PC for heavy multi threaded workloads outside of gaming.

I think you are talking about now for some reason. 2022/3 rush of people moving off 6c/12t CPUs-prove me wrong! lol I won't be though as happy to take the slight drop in FPS now for overall smoothness and long term lifetime before needing to upgrade- smoothness and increased enjoyable experience i am sure will last a lot longer with 8c/16t than 6c/12t CPUs.

The 1% lows on the 3600 are much better than the 2700x. But alright dude, enjoy what you enjoy.

For you 100%. If happy to replace a 3600 years before a 2700x for gaming then people can go for it. I won't need too but can imagine seeing a bargain AM4 in a couple of years and buying it...but that will be through choice rather than (like recently with 4c/8t CPU) finding it more and more unpleasent to game with.

I've bought an X570 board as I wanted the PCIE4 for faster productivity. But I think what I will end up doing is keeping the 2700x until the last flagship AM4 CPU comes out and then waiting for AM5 to launch and the price of the old flagship AM4 chip to drop, then pick that up. Probably be the 4950x or something.

I can't wait as sure we can pick up a bargain. Got to love what AMD have done/are doing with the CPU market. We are the winners.

You're very welcome

As you can see from the comments above there is debate over which CPU is best, even between AMD chpis, and this is quite normal these days with a lot of good value chips around. If I were building for myself I'd probably go 3600 with an aftermarket cooler because I'm interested in the FPS gain in the games I play now (mostly games that are at least a year old already) then change my CPU or platform in ~3 years times depending on what the options are then (I don't have a crystal ball but maybe a bargain 3800x or a complete change if the h/w at the time is miles ahead - intel have been lazy/greedy and are on the back foot at the moment but they have huge resources and will be back) but the 2600x and 2700x are also good value, and people naturally have different strategies on upgrading.

In general (depending on game and settings, and what else you have running) your RX 580 will run out of steam before your CPU whether 2600x, 2700x (or most other new options.) Which GPU are you looking to upgrade to in a few months please?

Hello thank you for all of this feedback everyone

Though I have not much knowledge in either side of the debate going on here, I am lenient towards Chapchaps idea of having this cpu for two or three years until the fifth series of Ryzens come out when the fourth start to drop down as the last of the AM4 socket into the scenario we have here and I grab a great deal on a great chip.

I am torn between a 2600x (I've ordered already for £114, but has not dispatched yet), and the 2700x at £140. There is the 2700 though is that worth it for allot of gaming and maybe abit of CAD and editing on the side? I'm not sure. And maybe considering the 3600.

My RX 580 did not cost much and is temperamental until I can upgrade later on and actually costed less that the CPU but I am looking a RTX 2600 or next generation possibly for my casual gaming ballpark.

Any advice would be appreciated

If you have the budget for a 2700x or 3600 (circa £25?) then yes pick one of those over the 2600x because you say you are looking to keep for 2-3 years, and although your gaming performance will be limited by your GPU (in general) you are going to be looking to get a much better GPU in the not too distant future.

As for the difference between the 3600 and 2700x, the 3600 has improved architecture, the 2700x has more cores/threads, but they are not that far apart on the spectrum of gaming / productivity, they are both decent at both but the 3600 is a bit better for gaming (depeding on GPU, game & settings) whereas the 2700x is a bit better for productivity (depending on software - the s/w needs to take advantage of the extra cores & threads of course.) You could always punch "3600 2700x comparison" into a web search and watch a load of YT vids and/or read articles on the performance differences with different GPUs and productivity software but if your usage is not geared heavily either way then I don't think you'd be unhappy with either chip.

[ Edit: I don't want to muddy the waters more but your motherboard choice is important too if you are thinking about upgrading the Ryzen a few years from now so your board will need to handle a 3800x or whatever. I'm inclined to ask @sarden84 on this if not too busy...? ]

Hello thank you for replying. I may consider the 2700x as it's cheaper than the 3600 and most likely a much better cooler which would drive the 3600's price higher than it is for an aftermarket cooler.

What is a circa by any chance?

The CPU support list for your board is plentiful so you should have good options when/if you want to upgrade in the future.
