Are there any better amd cpus than the ryzen 5 2600/x, apart from the 2700.
So would the 2600 be better than the 2700 in gaming.the first gen Ryzen 7 CPUs go neck and neck with some tasks. Threadripper CPU's are worse in gaming compared to Ryzen 7 cpu's but have much more computational power due to so many more cores so they would be better for non gaming tasks generally.
If youre just gaming and the 2600x is the best your budget can do, go with that.
In a few months Ryzen 3000 should be released, they have been promising some pretty big performance boosts
