On good motherboard overclocked 2700x will match stock 3600


And in 2023 the 2700x will still be very relevant - if buying new in 2020 buy 8c/16t. Unless you plan on upgrading in a couple of years that is.
steluca511/03/2020 21:35

This or 3600, better single thread vs multicore


To save anyone doing research these two are very close and it should go something like

Gaming - 3600
Multithreaded workloads - 2700x

this requires a discrete GFX solution, something to think about as its an extra cost you cant get away form, nice price though

There's no way a 2700X or 3600 won't have enough grunt in 2023. Even a 3rd gen i7 from 2012 still works easily good enough. My Mac Mini 2014 with a potato 4th gen dual core still works fine. I did a Ryzen 5 3600 build and I run Linux, I could make this build last 10 years if I wanted. 10 years from now, process rendering over the Internet will be far more advanced than now. 20 years from now, I bet we won't even need CPUs of any significant merit at home. !remind me 20 years oops sorry not Reddit.

That is fair enough. I still have a 2nd gen i7 4c8t. My son has a 1st gen xeon 4c8t. But can upgrade both cheaply to 6c12t. Point being that once coders got to multicore it makes no diffeence to scale for 6 or 8 or 10 or 12 threads. Great youtube video showing how intel held back development but since ryzen multicore coders have shifted from clock speed to core count

This video discusses game engine development and multi core

I agree. Even my first gen i7 870 was not significantly bottlenecking the rest of my system (including GTX 1080). Upgraded to a 3600 via a 7700K for other reasons, and gained a few FPS here and there.

Ha indeed. That is why the youtube aeticle interesting as he says programmers are now switching to multi core. See shadow of the tomb raider works great on low clock speed 10 core 10 thread xeons. But ubisoft still needs clock speed.
Nice .

I agree with you on the 2700x and 3600 having enough grunt. I didn't have that experience with my ivybridge i5 though in games. Began to struggle and hold back the system in gaming. Elsewhere I agree. My pc ran just fine even if it started to struggle at times with the ridiculous number of tabs I keep open on chrome and multiple spreadsheets and documents opened along with streaming music.

Who can say what will happen 10 years from now? Let alone 20? The world has changed so much from the early 2000s. Nobody could have predicted back then, to what it has changed to now imo. Most people are just rolling with the punches.

Back to the processor though. It's a price worth paying as far as risks go. We can't predict from here what the future gains will be in AMD and Intel processors but more importantly we can't predict if anything mainstream will even be able to take advantage of the gains. Most anyone probably can say is that the shift to 5nm will eventually happen and we will get some kind of performance and efficiency increase. That's it.

Bulldozer vs zen architecture. Almost night and day difference some would say. With the rumoured specs of the new consoles and 6/8 cores becoming common place other than laptops and ultra books (though this is changing with amd 4000 series), I do think developers will have little excuses to not invest time into taking advantage of multiple cores unless they can produce the goods more efficiently on one or two cores as they're doing now.
I currently have a Ryzen 5 1600x 3.60 coupled with a RTX 2080 would i nee much improvment if I went with this?

I am not doubting games will become more multi-threaded. I just can't accept the idea that a 6 core / 12 threaded IPC monster is going to be thrown in the bin in 2-3 years as people are claiming because it's going to be limiting games.

Even for gaming I still pick up 2700X. More new games are using 8 cores.

Neither can I tbh. Cpus are so powerful these days that they last a lot longer and the gains with new generations are going to be ridiculously massive. We're at the sharp end of the nm scale with AMD. It took a good 6/7 years for my i5 3550 to start giving me issues and its nowhere near as powerful as the 2700x and 3600.

6 cores will last a very long time. No way every game is suddenly going to use 8/16 cores. It'll be a gradual shift likely to quad cores or something to that affect.

Well the current 6 year old playstation and xbox have 8c CPUs and it's only now that 4c PC CPUs are showing their age.
I paid £300 for this in 2018. Absolute bargain.

I know what you mean, but there is no denying that currently the 3600 nets around 5fps in most games. Some people might want to work off that fact alone.

It's not worth the money. 2700X comes with better cooler, it's cheaper and more future proof.

Don't do it. You'd get more performance obviously but value for money wise? It would be suboptimal to say the least and for many, a waste of thermal paste.

Gaming wise there is a gap between intel and AMD until the current third generation. And if you look through benchmarks there's an improvement but depends on your resolution and even the games you play, if you'll even make use of the extra FPS.

Do you really need an upgrade? If I were in your position I wouldn't be thinking about one unless there were workloads or FPS issues with games at high resolution.

You can run a 3800X/3700X with that mobo. 6c/12t is fine for now so wait and see how you feel. For me going from 4c/8t to a 2700x the smoothness in big MP games was instantly noticeable and made games feel so much nicer to play. From a 1600 I doubt I would have noticed so much.

Only if you married it
There could be a Quantum leap in computing (according to D graig)
Edited by: "GwanGy" 12th Mar
Faster cores are preferable to more slower cores for workloads that cannot be/are not parallized to use multiple cores. Look at the total processing power of all cores combined (passmark or something), this is where a cpu with more cores could shine.. in this case 2700x doesn't pull ahead much from the 3600. There's no argument for more cores just for the sake of more cores.
Wish I had brought this rather then my 2700 in last weeks deal
Currently OOS on the website.
Thanks
I just bought a full prebuilt system from CCL computers It came with an option to get a 3 month xbox game pass for PC which I want to give to my nephew instead of using it myself. Is this possible??

Yes they just give you a code for the Xbox website.
This is a really good deal. I won't bother myself because I already have a 3600 but my next CPU will be Ryzen 7 I think.
