Just sharing my readup on 3600 vs 3600x

https://www.techspot.com/article/188...3600x-vs-3600/


Spoiler!



so yeah, ~S$20 difference (as of this post), for a slightly better cooler & free game, up to individual preference. The cpus are exactly the same from the article

own preference ba....as long the user happy , can liao.

tdp 65 vs 95 watts

to me, i will only go for 65 watts cpu....

-less energy consumption
-less heat generated
-longer components lifespan
-quieter

Unless environment is air-con, then these factors doesn't really matter.

yes most important is user happy.
good that you are happy with 65w tdp but the 4 reasons you are happy with 65w tdp are all false.

https://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/3...turer-opinions

casual users will get 3600 or 3700x depending on how many cores they want because its the cheapest in that tier.
enthusiast oc will instead get 3600x or 3800x because higher binned & the last thing they want to get is a lousy imc/infinity fabric.
the current limit to ryzen boost algorithm is temperature which is not as simple to overcome by just lowering the temp & as such the next best route to boost performance is thru mem oc with tight timings.
x $ = y performance comparisons look good on paper esp on those amateur review sites & youtube vids but do not translate well in reality when in depth analysis are considered.

no. its not.
No its not what? 2-5% is still slightly better. The cooler is better and theres a free game. All these are worth the extra $20.

If you want to dispute something at least put up some points.
