8700k is a 6 cores 12 threads CPU. Although a 3600 is most value for money today, there is a possible use case for 8 cores 16 threads just a few years down the road.

If your workload is just gaming today, 3600 is fantastic value but if you want a little more performance for video encoding/transcoding etc, a 3700X is better and won't need an upgrade in a few years' time.
by then u probably gonna upgrade ur system lo

But if newer 6 core also can win older 8 core both ways already then how?

If you need the 2 extra cores or more of performance today, get the 3700X or 3900X else if just gaming, get the 3600 and upgrade later to a 8 cores or more later for the most bang for the buck.

But if newer 6 core also can win older 8 core both ways already then how?

The question in discussion is whether today's games need more than 6 cores 12 threads. From the benchmarks only Shadows of the Tomb Raider and turn based games have some tangible gains from 8 cores and it ain't much.

If you are comparing to the Ryzen 2X00s, the IPC gains for Ryzen 3X00 make them a better buy for gaming as IPC is most important for gaming.


Anyways a new video from Gamers Nexus if the 3600X is worth the buy over the 3600 for the boost clocks.

i see the 3700x only use 65W and all other ryzen cpu like 105W, it looks very tempting with such low power cpu

Is it easy to push a 3600 to an all-core 4.1, or even 4.2 ghz with modest power input?

In most benchmark scenarios in reviews I seen so far, PBO (precision boost overdrive) yields almost the same performance as a manual overclock.

Also never seen reviewers talk about golden samples. It's possible that AMD binned the CPU really well and/or the PBO design is so dynamically efficient that it there is no overclocking headroom above what PBO offers automatically already.

It would not be unfathomable that AMD has kept all the golden samples for release as overclocked SKUs for future release too.
