This or the 3600 for gaming at 1440p?

This or the 3600 for gaming at 1440p?


for gaming and other common tasks, i'd get the 3600.
if you dont have motherboard yet, get a cheap x470 and spend monies on GPU. (generic rule)
For the experts. Have things changed much for cpu and gaming? Last time I bought mine (i5) most games were single processor and that was enough to play it all (gen 4 oc at 2.8ghz). Do u guys I need to upgrade for 1080 gaming? Got an rx480 but just bought a 1070 on amazon warehouse for cheap. I think I'm set for a few years but any thoughs appreciated
thats what im debating , i got all my p.c parts but my Motherboard is Msi x470 M7 it has im sure i have to update the Bios if i choose the 3600 ,
I dont think i need an old CPU to do that as it has Bios Usb flash i think but i've never done it before so not sure if i should just pick the 2700x
thought the smart money was on cheaper 2700 (non x) and overclock?

9700k or nothing
I have an x470-f mobo.. should I get this or the 3600? I'm not sure if i need an old ryzen cpu for the bios upgrade!
I'd get the 3600 cheaper and seems to perform better going by YT comparison videos.

Get the 3600 your always better to get the newer model, if your worried about flashing the bios I'm sure there will be 100s of videos to watch showing what to do. if you have bought the parts and never used them but you bought them recently it may already have the supported bios on there.

I'm stuck and don't know what to do, at launch I bought a MSI x370 pro carbon board which at the time was supposed to have been one of the best boards out there and a 1700x cpu. Id always Intended to upgrade in a couple of years rto the 3000 series as I'd see a substantial increase in performance as it was a 2 generation jump but now I can't make my mind up what I should do. I'm getting a 3900x cpu and don't know if I should stick it in my x370 motherboard as it has the latest bios on supporting the new cpu's and wait for a price drop on the x570 or pay through the nose now and get x570 or wait and upgrade board and cpu in a couple of months when the bugs have been worked out on the x570 boards and the prices start to drop.

When i initially upgraded from a Intel i5 to a amd rig I paid a lot of money, the MSI board was £190 and the 1700x was about £350 and within a month or 2 the board had dropped by around £40 and so had the cpu. It's not like I'm in a rush as my current rig is plenty fast and works fine. I also pre-ordered one of the amd 5700XT gpus that were posted the other day from Amazon for the same price or less as the none XT version to replace my faulty rtx 2060 but there's a wait on them and that's assuming Amazon honour the price.

Anyone want to weigh in I'd be glad of the thoughts.

Yes that's what I would do like with my current 1700 I overclocked it to 3.8GHz, maybe the vcore might have to go a bit higher but still worth saving a bit of money unless you really want to know the 2700X version has been cherry picked for the higher clocks.

A lot of modern games do like the additional cores now but you certainly don't these 24 / 32 thread CPU's for gaming. Depending which gen i5 you have, you may find it ends holding your GPU back a bit

Honestly, MSI's X370 boards were complete garbage. All of them. Even the Xpower Titanium had a very poor VRM relative to the competition, and it's not like the competition was of a particularly high standard on X370 for the most part. They used cheap Niko Semiconductor MOSFETs that were "fine" for the chips of the time, but not exactly built with the future and more power-hungry CPUs in mind. Really the only X370 boards which still hold up fairly well are the Crosshair VI and Crosshair VI Extreme from Asus and the Taichi from ASRock. The quality across the board was raised hugely for X470 and then again for X570.

MSI also cheaped out on the BIOS chips that they used, which means they've now had to put out a simplied "beta" BIOS for their X370 boards that's massively cut back, because there's simply no room on the chips they used to house the full BIOS now that the microcode to support three generations of CPUs has gotten so large. So if you want to use Ryzen 3000 on an MSI X370 board, be prepared for a simplified BIOS too.

As for whether it can technically support the 3900X - yes, it can. At stock at least. Though you'd probably want to make sure that you have some airflow over the VRM heatsinks, as it's likely to get pretty toasty. Especially if you use an AIO.

I've got a i5 4690k oc at 3.9. I just want 1080p. That's why I got the 2nd hand 1070. It might slow it down a bit but not life changing. As long as I can play OK for the next couple of years I'm good

if u ain't in a rush always wait. y bother upgrading. prices always fall, for both cpu and board. and you'll also know which boards are better than others in case of any issues.

Why do you feel ripped off? You planning on swapping your 3700x for an Athlon back and forth? Or you mess around in your BIOS so much/often that a "prettier" U.I is important to you?

Otherwise, why would you care?

I think for 1080p / 60fps you should be fine. Upgrading from that CPU now would be quite expensive as it would be mobo and ram too. You could always look out for a 2nd hand i7 to keep you going a bit longer.

Because they removed a BIOS feature on my board (raid support) after I bought it so that the ryzen 3000 CPU's could fit on the 16mb rom.

They are adding it back. In the next BIOS update. You can read that on the Tomahawk BIOS page itself.

So you can stop feeling ripped off.

Single core you say? cpubenchmark.net/sin…tml

The 9700K you say? cpu.userbenchmark.com/Com…040

We're talking a few fps here or a few % difference in a synthetic benchmark, that saving on the Intel tax however means you could go up a tier or even 2 when it comes to your gpu which will give you a lot more than a few fps improvement. In the majority of situations it will be the gpu bottlenecking way before the cpu, a 4790K doesn’t bottleneck a 1080ti. Who's the fanboy again?

So you are a fool, just because all you do is game on your machine not all of us do that. If all I wanted to do was game I'd have bought a i3 and a 2080 but I use my PC's as intended for video conversion Photoshop and lots of other stuff that uses more than single core. The way your banging on its like the difference is massive not just a couple of % and when it comes to multicore performance intel loses big time. Intel are losing the CPU war they are still building there CPU's on 12nm microarchitecture why AMD are using 7nm and it will be years before intel catch up leaving AMD CPU's to become much faster and efficient.

I was building PC's before you were born. I'm no fanboy at all infact up until I bought the X1700 I'd been running intel kit since before the Q6600 and just because you probably don't know, that was Intel's first quad core CPU which was 2 core2's stuck together. I have also been running Nvidia GPUs since the AMD 4890.
