Worth upgrading? I7 6700 ---> Ryzen 7 2700x

 Share

Go to solution Solved by _StrikE_,

In the future if you really do needed extra cpu power studying game development upgrade then. At least personally I'm still very pleased with what my cpu has to offer gaming wise, the only thing that would make it worth the upgrade is if your focusing on streaming i guess (which doesn't seem to be the case).

I am just wondering if you think that the upgrade is worth it? I mostly game and i will study game programming in the future.

There's Ryzne 5 2600X and Ryzen 7 2700X, not R7 2600X

 

I'd say wait for 3rd gen Ryzen's release, seems on track for early next year (so a month or two away). 6700 isnt bad.

I don't know a ton about programming, but I do know that some compilers like high core counts. Do you know what you'll end up using program wise?

As for gaming, your 6700 should be slightly better than a 2600X in single core games. If you overclock the 2600X, the gap will be a slot smaller.

I'd wait for the next generation of Ryzen.

thats not really an upgrade and more of a sidegrade, dont bother

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

Well if you aren't happy with your current streaming results then it might be a good idea to further look into the upgrade, since the 2600x has more cores, but if you're pleased atm personally i see no reason to rush with the way things are advancing this days, like others have said except from some specific tasks its more of a sidegrade then upgrade.

An i7-6700 will not only match a 2700X in games, in will also beat it in plenty of them as can be seen here:

 

 

It's a "sidegrade" as one user said or even a downgrade in many games.
