i5 9600k Vs Ryzen 5 2600x

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am upgrading from an i5 8400 as it is lagging behind in VR. I play alot of very CPU demanding VR games like blade and Sorcery.

Which CPU is a better upgrade for me? 

For the Ryzen I would have to buy a new mobo but I can get the Gigabyte A320M-S2H for £50 and as Ryzen 5 2600x are very cheap, bundling the two together is similar priced to an i5 9600k

 

So which CPU will be most effective for me? 

Other specs:

Vega 56

12gb ddr4 2660mhz

2tb 7200 rpm HDD

120gb ssd

(current mobo) MSI H310m pro-vh

TXM 750W psu

Thank youuu

...you're kinda crippled either way.

2666mhz RAM isn't the best for Ryzen, and it's a weaker CPU.

But if you upgrade to the 9600k, you can't overclock it....so you miss a bit of performance there.

The A320 motherboards are pretty bad as well, I wouldn't pay that kind of money for one.

Yeah it's not a great situation but I did some research and found that 9600k Vs OC 9600k aren't that huge of a difference so what should I do?

Are there any cheaper options you can recommend something around £70?

what sort of problems are you running into playing blade and sorcery?, i had a 4670 with an 1060 6gb that ran it quite well and when i got a 9600k and a 2070 i ran it with mods and it worked perfectly, when i house sat i ran it with the same mods but through a laptop (3gb 1060 and a like 6th gen old i5 i think) and it ran it quite well ingame but loading is where most of my issues were

I'm not sure what's happening but even with just 1 mod installed CPU is running 70% with no enemies and 90-100 when there are enemies and this bottleneck causes alot of lag. any ideas??

The Outer Rim

interesting, because that is one of the ones that i had installed, might i suggest running malware bytes and seeing if that picks anything up, same as defender (defender will check for errors inside of windows along with a virus scan)
