    sell while it's got some value ?

    theres people bidding $430 and counting ATM for an out of warranty 7700k+matx z270 mobo. that sort of desire for one those can't last long surely. You could pick a new one of these up with even a higher end b550 mobo's for what, $380 all up? :o much less if happy with a lower end board

    199. killer deal :D

    great time to be alive. sticking it hard to intel. finally !
    early adopters of amd ryzen platforms have really helped it along. good job amd. awesome to see.

    i'm drooling over another build for the fetish. b550. i might just plonk a 3000 in it.

    yep, 3300x at 205 with a 150 buck b550 mobo and a 140 bucks of fast ram.... life looks good at the bottom end :)

    edit - with a upgrade path to 4000 something when it EOL for the ultimate fast bargain

    Yes tell that .. to the poor bunnies that invested in threadripper..
    1st gen TR4 is basically dead.. but socket 2066 is hanging in there... 3 CPU ""generations ""' later..

    P.S. there are three threadripper gen 1 combos around the house...

    My $80 crappy B350 motherboard.. gets a much better CPU upgrade options that my premium $500 threadripper that was bought later..

    amd never promised anything on tr4 ...

    and not to be nasty or shitty but, the hedt end of town is always for those with more money than they know what to do with

    its either used appropriately in a workstation and recoupes the investment in 12 months

    or its a toy that turns into a paperweight in 12 months

    I thought 4 core core CPUs were essentially dead:confused:.

    Suprising to see this outperform the 2600 I haven't read the reviews yet, surely theirs instances where the 2600 does better?

    What a strange world, higher price CPUs time after time showing poor longevity better off in the low-mid range.

    That being said perhaps their will be good deals on the R5-3600 soon enough for low $200s?

    Think that'll be the final piece for my crappy B350 board.

    maybe for gamers and content creators
    the rest of us doing OK on 4c/8t [looks lovingly at 2600k]

    What's really surprising is the 3300X essentially matching the R7-2700X for gaming:shock:, just going off the hardware unboxed video anyway.

    Thinking about this again perhaps best bet is jump to the new B550 platform even with the 3300X because it's not far behind the 3600 and should be a fair chunk cheaper.

    Never really got around to gaming on my budget B350/R3-1200/16GB 3000 memory & RX570-4 Gig computer:Paranoid:.

    For desktop use theirs nothing wrong with it, I always envisaged upgrading but with nothing really for gamers (3600 over 3300X) might as well look to build a new PC and perhaps if the old machine still runs in a few years their'll be heaps of cheap 2-3000 cpus to give the machine more life.

    I think 4c/8t is now considered minimum spec. Someone forgot to tell the guys in the For Sale forum who are bidding over $400 for a 7700k + mAtx mobo.

    still a lot of threads if you are into those types of workloads.
    ----------
    Also. that bloke at tech deals makes the point that frame times are much smoother with 6/12 cpu's versus 4/8's in many games, which can be seen on his graphs. it isn't just the raw average fps. it's about optimisation for more cores.

    Now I'm conflicted,

    3600 or 3300X
    B450 or wait for B550

    Some gaming on a RX570, looking forward to cyberpunk 2077

    check optimisation for cores (for cyberpunk and whatever else you play) ...and at that level of graphics. b450 is fine.

    but still it is a dilemma. :)

    Yep, ran my Ryzen 1700 on a A320 board for several months before buying a X370. It never missed a beat, and after upgrading to the X370 I wished I'd just kept my money in the bank.

    I would go for the B550/3300X route, resale is likely to be pretty good on the 3300X when you decide to upgrade to a better cpu in 6-12 months and will be much faster than the 3600, I reckon the 3600 would want to drop a fair bit to make B450 attractive at this stage.

    Generally resale values on AMD cpus is simply crap..

    Buy what you need..

    If the release price of the 3300X is around $205 - at PC casegear

    the 3600 is been as low as $259 delivered pre covid and $279 recently.. at shopping express..

    Its probably worth spending the extra $80-$100 on the extra two cores.. given the next gen console are meant to be 8 cores / 16 threaded AMD CPUs.. and games are likely to be optimised for that configuration in the further.


    As part of a whole machine.. the extra $80- 100 gives you up to 50% more processing power / cores..

    Looks like B550 is the way to go..



    Although I expect you'll be able to pick-up a B450 at a very good price soon!
