Looks like my 1700 is now worth about a Mars bar.

Great price
At that price, why bother with the previous gen?

For multi threaded applications a 2700 is 8 core and 16 thread, so nearest equivalent new gen will be nearly twice the price. Thats why.

Oh. I am sorry. I thought he meant why 2nd gen when 3rd gen is out a great deal for a lot of power.

Really is...it's almost double the passmark of my i5-6600. Tempted but really don't need it for the hour I use my PC each week!
still holding strong I see... paid 176 two months ago.

Oh sorry in that case it's me that misunderstood! The price of this CPU is amazing for a 15000 passmark score, sure the new one is near 24000 but it's also near double the price...

Great Price although the 2600X is a steal for £139 and probably better if your gamer as it's IPC clocks higher.

Then again the 3600 is only £20 more... May as well get that
Same price on Amazon now
Whats the best board for this without bios update (does it need one?)and memory..thank u in advance

Can anyone recommend an inexpensive motherboard? Not bothered about compatibility with 3rd gen Ryzen, since I doubt any 4th gen onwards would be compatible.

Get an Asrock B450 Pro4.
Got this, have it running at a steady 4.0 GHz Vcore 1.275 - 30-40 idle - 40-50 full load. Brilliant CPU.
Is the 3700x worth the premium over this for games, efficiency and higher memory speed support?

Both are 65w, gaming performance is meant to be about 10-20% better depending on the game.

Personally I'd get the 3600 and spend the extra dosh on gfx.

I thought about the 3600 and its a great vfm chip but are the 6 cores future proof enough given that games will probably be optimized for 8 cores in the future due to next gen consoles being 8 core amd parts!?

There's been talk about games being optimised for multiple cores for sooooo many years now..... Not happened as of yet!

What about for non gaming ,as a workstation is the 3700x worth it then ?

PS3 was 7 but given the weird architecture of that it probably doesn't count.

Xbox One X is 8 cores.

Meh technically the PS4 and Xbox one have 8 cores, just across two processors. Honestly if you have the money just buy the best processor you can get, just don't skimp on other components to afford the 2 extra cores...

Way ahead of you, my rig arrived on Tuesday and is running like a dream! Apart from the voltage issues ofc but there's a workaround and I guess it will be fixed once they bring a bios update

Yes ,I would be using it for work which can be demanding ,although Ram seems to be my main bottleneck at the moment .
I'm looking at either the 2700x or 3700x with 32GB of Ram .
Cpu Benchmark gives the 3700x 23896 ,the 2700x gets 16969 and the 1700x 14681 so the 3000 series seems like a big jump in processing power.
teale.leach26/07/2019 11:04

PS4 and Xbox One both have 8 cores (7 for games and 1 for the OS). This is also likely the setup for the new consoles and why they will be fully backwards compatible this time around.

If I were building a new system I would probably go for 8 cores as it adds a bit of future proofing as we are seeing games starting to reguarly use more cores.

Having said that if gaming is your primary focus the 3600 is the better buy as it's around 10% better FPS in modern games.

Is this worth £69.97 more than an AMD Ryzen 5 2600 which I can still return from prime day? Use is gaming and CAD work.
I was saving up for a 3600 ... I predominantly game and office work, with rare photoshop ... would it be better to save up for the 3600 or get this? When I read reviews, the 3600 is better at single core and similar to multicore... but at the price these are dropping

Honestly, Get a 3600, it will be worth it in games, and a 3600 is perfectly adequate for other tasks.
3600 for a similar price is showing better benchmarks. Literally sat in Scan buying one as we type. Just be sure to update your BIOS first or ask the shop to if buying a B450 based motherboard. Which is what I'm doing as they're like half the price of the newer X series boards.

No. Keep the 2600. For CAD you don’t need the extra cores unless you render with a CPU-based render engine.
