Upgrade to Ryzen 2700X for less money or get the 3600 instead?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm considering upgrading to 2700X or 3600 from my lackluster i3 7100 and in my region, 2700X is about $15 cheaper than the $200 3600.So I'm asking for advices or opinions on how the performances of these chips may differ.

If you cannot utilize 16 threads for your every day use, the 3600X would be the better option because it has better single core performance. 

 

Either chip would be fine for gaming honestly depending on the video card you're using.

Price difference is damn near negligible, so it's up to usage scenario. IF you do more video editing and stream/recording games, then the 8T/16T 2700X would be more suitable. If you're more into gaming, the 3600 is the faster chip for games, but I don't think you'd lose if you pick either.....

Price difference would be enlarged if i include the motherboard, as it would have some kind of discount. I'm choosing MSI B450 A PRO MAX. This way, 2700X setup ($265) would be 12% cheaper than that of 3600 ($305), saving me up to $40

40 bucks to put towards a larger graphics card.
