Question What CPU to choose


Oct 1, 2021
It depends upon the graphics card u are paring it with. If u plan on putting an RTX 3000 series card or any that requires PCI-E gen 4(u can find this out on Techpowerup site) then go with Ryzen as it has PCI-E gen 4. If not then u can also go with a i7.
They are comparable.
Both have 12 threads.
8700K might be slightly better for gaming because of a better single thread performance, but the 3600 will do better for streaming.
For office stuff, you want a ssd above all.
The graphics cards are comparable.
I would not be inclined to buy either.
