CPU Quest!

So I am looking to build a new rig this year. Finding the right CPU has been the hardest task. I don't mind going with a socket that isn't current like 1151. My current setup is running on a i7-4710MQ. Attached is a photo of what it's performing at in game, maybe max it goes is 75% load. The main question is, what processor could I grab that isn't on a super old platform, Intel or AMD that would be a decent bang for the buck, eBay buy, and give me the performance I need, paired with a decent GPU to play 1080p games. Overall goal is 1080p, 200 fps + in most titles, I'll probably be playing on 144-165Hz, but I may snag a 240Hz monitor this year if the deals are right.

Well, if you want Windows 11, then the CPU had best be modern...

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

How modern are we talking? The best bang for the buck CPU I see for the sub $100 on the LGA 1200 is 10100F

From another site:

The processor requirement is the most restrictive; supported processors include 8th-generation and newer Intel Core processors as well as AMD Ryzen 2000-series processors and newer. These are all chips that launched in late 2017 and early 2018. Older computers can’t officially run Windows 11. This is a big departure from Windows 10, which made a point of supporting pretty much anything that could run Windows 7 or Windows 8.

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

Does "most games" include the really demanding ones say RDR2? That cant do near 200fps with ab RTX 3090, if you can afford that I dont think you will be sensitive to prices of other components. I need a better idea to what you want before giving recommendations.

I also heard windows 11 requires a tpm, I'm not sure what this is tbh. And I really think I am going to get a used B450/B550 so let's build around that, like my 3600 rig I had. I see also 5600x's go for around $200-$300 on ebay that is a good deal huh?

Thoughts on 1600 AF vs 3600 performance. I loved my 3600 but if I went the route of the 1600 AF would I be disappointed?

1600AF may have similar performance to a 6700 intel chip. Not great, definitely slower than a 3600 by at minimum 10%.

I could live with that lol. How is the 1600 AF for OCing vs. the 3600? I pushed my old 3600 to 4.5GHz. 

 

The 1600 AF is the 12nm chip right?

Right 12nm zen+. Looking at 4.1 to 4.2ghz all core. 1.40v(ish).

 

What's the price on a 2700X then?

I think the 2700 is almost the same price as the 1600 AF and 2600. If I'm not mistaken the 2700 has a non X version too right? but for an 8 core around $100 used it may be the best budget CPU if I wanna save $100-$150 on the 3600 right?
