https://www.techpowerup.com/review/amd-ryzen-5-3600/10.htmlThe 3600 is also slower the the 2700X in most multi-threaded tasks by about 15% but is the same price.
Provided you live near a Micro Center since that is in-store only, your going to find that most people don't.
It depends on the operations, in gaming terms thought the 3600 leads by a slim margin in nearly every title you can find. If you can pick up a 2700x far cheaper than a 3600 then yes it's worth it.I saw nothing in reviews comparing the two where the 2700X was faster/better....(except perhaps the 2700X's lower temps and power consumption under load)
Ergo, in comparison to the 3600, the 2700X should now be about $150 to be tempting..
