I'm curious what do you guys think about the "leaked processor specs" and if they were true would you be upgrading to it and if so which "leaked processor"? I am putting quotations as nothing is confirmed as of yet
That makes sense I am trying to keep a close eye on the news esp. when computex begins right now I am possibly looking at a 3600x because if those are the confirmed specs at computex that's a pretty big jump in performance for not much more expensive then the 2700My plan at this point is to wait until the end of this year and see what appeals to me as far as the Ryzen 3000 series CPU's are concerned.
I enjoy OCing so I'm thinking about replacing my Ryzen 5 2600 with a 65W TDP Ryzen 3000 and OCing it to see if it can equal its higher TDP counterpart.
Definitely get what you mean but since I am super new to all this I don't want to just jump into overclocking and then fry my system I want to slowly research overclocking with my chosen CPU so I don't have to cough up more money if something goes wrong and so if I don't feel overclocking is worth the performance gain I can just stick with stock GHz and not feel like I wasted my money^ I definitely get your point concerning the 3600x.
If I didn't enjoy OCing I would definitely be looking at the x versions.
But for me a 3600 that I can OC to see if I can match the 3600x for performance is more attractive.
I actually can afford to buy higher performing CPU's but for me that takes all the fun out of it.
Computex isn't far and yes I get rumors are rumors leaks are just leaks nothing confirmed but I think it's nice to see what others think and I did acknowledge that it isn't confirmed just wanted to strike some conversationLeaked specs mean nothing until we see retail processor benchmarked, until then nothing needs be said.
I am just getting into this kind of stuff so no worries I just wanted to see the route others would be taking if the rumors are true about the specs which we will hopefully find out most of this juicy info at computexNot a 2nd gen Ryzen owner, but I did just sell my 1st gen Ryzen 5-1600X system. My plan was to use the money to buy a new 3rd gen Ryzen if they ever get here. Not sure if I would go beyond the 3600/3600X or not. There's not much I do that requires more than 12 threads, if that.
I even bought a RTX 2070 to go with it. It's living in my i5-9700K system at the moment.
I feel you on the choice between 3600/3600x but atm I have a very low grade gaming laptop with a 8th gen i5 Integrated GPU 12 GB Memory and 1TB HDDAlso not a current gen owner, but am eagerly awaiting actual specs to see if it's finally time to replace the 6600k. Right now I don't think the performance of a 2600/2600x is worth it. Will be looking at the 3600/3600x, depending on overclockabilty to which one to grab.
That's understandable I was very with Intel and against AMD until recently because my parents got told by a retailer that Intel is best for gaming and that AMD could never top that (which is technically true) but since I plan to do a lot more then just game like video editing streaming I think AMD is the best choice for me even if it costs a few frames but I don't totally hate Intel tho I do now see why alot of builds on YT have a ryzen processor because they have a better performance per dollar from what I've learnedI'm not a 2nd gen Ryzen owner either. I've been Intel only for over a decade but may go back to AMD for my next major upgrade some time next year. I used to be AMD only until the Intel C2Ds arrived and lured me away with their massive overclockability on reasonably cheap motherboards and haven't felt the urge to go back since, until now.
If the 3rd gen Ryzens can outpace my current i5-6600K @4.5GHz by enough to make it worth the upgrade, I'm coming back.
This, 100% this!!! My 6600k is still kicking some booty, but feel something faster would better compliment my 2080. And a mobo/cpu for less than the cost of a 9700k sounds pretty great. Already have 3000mhz ram, so it'll be a fairly affordable upgrade if the leaks hold any truth.I'm not a 2nd gen Ryzen owner either.

I get you I got a pretty meh very entry gaming laptop with no GPU gonna be going with 2700(non x) or 3600x depending on specs as 3600x is a pretty big jump from the 2700(non x) with the higher base clock and having alot of overclocking roomInteresting thread; I too am waiting with bated breath for specs, benchmarks, etc to be posted. I have been nursing a 7 year old i7-3770 system for a while waiting for the right time to upgrade.
Perhaps that time is upon us.....my uses include general, Lightroom and some occasional gaming. Over the past few months I have upgraded GPU (1070 ti overclocked), PSU (Focus Plus 650 Gold), case (FD R6).
I haven't decided on 3700X or 3600X...really depends on testing results.....I sort of like the 3700X better, but not sure if I need all those cores and threads, but 5GHz turbo sounds good to me. : )
