NEW PC BUILD - Ryzen 5 3400G or Ryzen 5 3600

Budget (including currency): 40000 - 50000 (INR)

Country: INDIA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Virtual Machine access, RDP access, email, multitasking, (BEGINNER TO LEARN EDITING, DESIGNING)

 

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc):

 

Hello everyone,

 

I want to build a PC for multitasking, email, remote desktop access, and I'm interested in learning some editing and designing,

 

1. Is Ryzen 5 3400g good for beginners (Ryzen 5 3400g has less core and thread count comparing to ryzen 5 3600) ?

 

2. Does core counts affects PC performance with a huge difference ?

 

I'm a kind of moderate to heavy user

 

Please advise.....

 

Thanks in advance!

Jumpa

 Go with ryzen 5 3600 cuz 3600 has gpu upgradability plus it is zen 2 which means much better performance. The 2 extra cores help at multitasking, making video renders faster, etc but not much.

if you have a dedicated gpu gp for 3600 because it does not have any king of igpu

but if you plan to use igpu for a while 3400g is your best option

Any specific reason for wanting to buy AMD ?

 

Intel i5 11400 is both cheaper and faster than Ryzen 3600.

OK, So if i don't have dedicated gpu my computer will not boot at all ?

 

If i choose 3600, my plan is to upgrade the GPU after couple of months till that i will use my PC without GPU for my office work (E-mail, VM, RDP ....) and some casual stuff.

 

Is it possible ?

Lot of youtube videos are telling that Ryzen is the best, when i am looking at the core count, threads, CPU Boost ryzen has more numbers for less price,

 

Please correct me if i am wrong

For that time, yes, it is technically the king of the CPU. Now, it is a little bit 'old'. The Ryzen 3000 series CPU came out at 2018.

 

Intel i5 11400 (non-F) is technically 'better' because it is newer, has integrated GPU as well, so you don't need a GPU. 1 Plus side is unlike Ryzen APU which only has x8 PCIe lanes for GPU card if you decided to add 1, Intel will have full x16 PCIe lane for your GPU. But of course, depending on your work load, but Intel lack in cache and has a slight performance impact if the application take advantage for high L3 cache, because 11400 only has 12MB while Ryzen 3600 has 32MB L3 cache. Another thing that Ryzen 3600 win over 11400 is power efficiency.

 

In any case, different CPU has its own gains and losses. AMD are more better in multi-tasking and CPU heavy load, while Intel are more focus on speed and are much better at gaming.

 

Still, this is just my opinion, so, take this with a grain of salt.

I apologies if my comments or post offends you in any way, or if my rage got a little too far. I'll try my best to make my post as non-offensive as much as possible.

Yes AMD is the best but to be more specific it is the new Ryzen 5000 series that is the best.

Ryzen 3600 is still a good CPU and it was the best in its price category for a long time.

But the Ryzen 3600 is now 2 years old and it has been surpassed by Intels latest i5 CPUs. 

 

My summarization of the current CPUs on sale today:

The absolute best are the Ryzen 5900x & 5950x but they are also extremely expensive (and overkill).

The best all-round CPU is Ryzen 5600x.

The best budget CPU is the i5 11400

(11400 has about the same or slightly better performance than Ryzen 3600 at a slightly lower price)

OK Thank you,

 

Is Intel® Core™ i5-10400 Processor OK ?

This is what my choice would be.

1: i5 11400 > 2: Ryzen 3600 > 3: i5 10400

 

But there is only a small difference between these CPUs so it comes down to price. 

Also look at the prices for the motherboards. 

If you can get any of these for a discount then that is what I would do. 

Or maybe there is a good package deal including a motherboard.

 

B560 motherboard for 11400

B450/B550 motherboard for Ryzen 3600

B460 motherboard for 10400.
