Which cpu for gaming?

 Share

Ryzen 5 1600 or ryzen 5 2600 is it worth the 50euro price difference? The 1600 is 170 and the 2600 is 220-225

If it is for gaming you're gonnna want the higher clock speeds of a Ryzen 2000 CPU.

I understand that, but that 0,4ghz worth 50euros(60$)?

True if it's being kept at stock speeds -- however, @SzaboAttila, if you're a tinkerer, the top overclocked speed of Ryzen 1000 and Ryzen 2000 are pretty similar (4.0 vs like 4.2ghz), and especially if you're fine with spending a few hours to get high RAM clocks, a 1000 series CPU is totally a viable option.

StoreMI is pretty much a gimmick IMO -- unless you plan to use it, it's basically worth nothing.

I had problems with StoreMI.  I've used it in a boot drive setup and game drive setup and both saw weird stuttering.  It's worse when it presents itself in games, but could be tolerable in other day to day tasks.  The worst part is that there isn't a non-destructive method of removing StoreMI.  Completely destructive and requires a lot of effort to remove.

Nope, get the 1600 and if you want those 400MHz overclock it, tbh you won't need them just for gaming

 

I picked up the 1700 (over the 2600) and it's great so far.
