Why is EVERYONE buying this CPU??

There are dozens of CPUs on the market for both productivity and gaming, but one stands tall above the rest – Why is everyone buying it?

"Why everyone buy the R5 3600 ? "
Well because the 3300x is still unavailable and the Ryzen 7 is two price range above 😛

Finally after all these years I realized, that the mid range products usually deliver the best performance for the money. WHO WOULD'VE THOUGHT

In case of USB confusion, refer to this sh*t.

  • 10Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2
  • 20Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2x2
  • 40Gb/s - Thunderbolt 3
  • 40Gb/s certified - Thunderbolt 4

So 6-core is the popular choice in 2020. I plunked down on a 5960X back in 2014 - yeah it was expensive but I've been enjoying 8 core performance now for 6 full years. More importantly it still feels up to the task today so my investment is still paying dividends. Some say I should throw away my 5960X just because modern chips are faster clock-for-clock - not when it can still get what I need done. It's stupid easy to OC, the board it's on is solid and the RAM is cheap to replace if it fails.

 

If I was building today I would most likely either go Threadripper or last year's W3175X. I won't say the new 5950 is a bad thing but look at the boards for it - consumer level stuff just doesn't have the same feel and feature set as enthusiast level gear. I've found that low end stuff does become a throwaway fairly quickly simply because it cannot handle the tasks you begin to throw at it many years later. That's unlike high end server gear which still sells well on the second hand market for obvious reasons.

I feel like this video is begging the question.

These might go on sale / drop in price after next gen release. So obviously everyone is set on buying to some extent, perhaps not straight away but with this in mind.

idk maybe I'm stupid and missing something important.

It's cheap it's good, the boards are very affordable and there is a stock cooler that works.

Great point on how cheap and efficient the boards are, but the stock for the R3600 is horrible! The Prism outclasses it.

Well-priced, Supported on a wide variety of motherboards, Overclockable-ish, 6 core 12 threads, and the feeling being different from other people that are using Intel. Oww... and also cool product name.

Bought it because it was cheap, good performance and it had 6 cores and 12 threads. 

 

I have my R5 3600 overclocked to 4.5ghz at 1.288v and this thing is a beast.

I'm curious from this video.... my pc has Motherboard: A320M PRO-VH PLUS  & Processor: AMD Ryzen 2600 3.4 GHz

What kind of real world improvement would a 3600 give me? I looked it up one time and from my minimal understanding at the time I looked from the differences between a 2600 and 3600, there didn't look like it'd be much..just a little speed.. but since the video raised the topic, and there are people who actually know what all this stuff means, unlike me, would a 3600 be a big improvement in real world terms to the 2600?

10, maybe 15 percent speed bump and/or FPS. Changes these days are incremental, not quantum. It's for people who are going from a 3rd/4th gen Intel CPU, starting fresh, not for people who bought a SoTA CPU 1-2 years ago.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

Going from a 4790k to a 9800X now was well worth the upgrade. Yes a 9800X was not the best purchase (February 2019) I made when there are other CPU's out there that offer more cores for less but didn't want to encounter issues with AMD.

@gabenjr implied otherwise in the video, though. But 10% likely isn't worth the money and time at this point.

I am currently using a Ryzen 3 3100 for now .... but in comparison to when I was using 3600 I miss using the 3600.

 

The single IPC of the 3000 series is great.

 

Previously I was using a 1600 first gen too.

 

I will switch back using a 6 core soon. I need 6 cores as I am so used to it
