Ryzen 3600 or Ryzen 2700

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My local shop sell Ryzen 3600 and Ryzen 2700 at the same price. I wonder should I go for Ryzen 3600 or 2700.

 

Here's what I initially aim for:

Gigabyte Aorus X570 Pro Wifi

Gigabyte Radeon RX Vega 64

16GB (2x8GB) 3200MHz RAM

 

Even if I'm using Ryzen 2000 series, I'll still keep the X570 motherboard.

 

Regards,

Chiyawa

drop to a Gigabyte Aorus elite wifi instead to save some money and get the 3600 if you are playing games.

Wouldn’t a 3700x be a better choice if one wanted to keep their cpu longer?

For the time being, there is no reason to go above 6 cores 12 threads. 

 

It could certainly be nice, tho the 2700 isnt great due to the lower singlethread performance

For just gaming there's no true need, might as well save the 120+ dollars and upgrade to octa-core when Zen 2+ launches if the need truly rises.

Is that so? I had thought of opting for a 3700x just to be safe with the next generation of consoles right around the corner. The “keep the $150 and upgrade in 2/3 years” argument is lost on me as I have no intention of doing so for at least five years.

I have to admit though I’d love to be told with a high degree of certainty that the gains in game in the future will be marginal, if that. Would be easier on my wallet! Unfortunately based on what I’ve read it is not as easy to tell.

Wow, interesting responses I get here. Okay, to answer a few question:

Both, so it's 50-50.

I wonder if it has 3 x16 PCI slots (or 2 x16 + 1 x4 slots).

I would like the 3700X, but my budget is a little tight for that.

 

 

Thanks guys, but I think I'll go for Ryzen 3000 series, because I need a PCIe 3.0 x4 for my SAS controller.

Grab the 3600 them the multicore performance is pretty close to the 2700.
