Absolutely. http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Comp...3957vs4040

I'm sure there are some people that can use the 8 cores and 16 threads of the 2700, but the 3600 is a lot better for most people.

+7% MC perf for the 2700 would not make me get it over a 3600 when the avg usr bench is like +13% for the 3600 overall.

It was on Newegg during Prime Day. I picked one up because I wasn't ready to drop $200+ for an X570 board.

I wouldn't depend solely on UserBenchmark. Google it and check the latest news on how they generate their scoring values.

Yea good point, but I think GN did a review of the 3600 and compared to a 2700x it was beating or within a fraction on rendering.

You're good with a 1700x, most games are GPU bound anyway so benchmarks don't apply to most people unless they have the top tier GPUs.

I just bought and installed one of these in a new build yesterday (OEM version from eBay for a bit less), immediately overclocked it to 4.0ghz (haven't attempted it any higher yet) with a Noctua U12S cooler and it's running great. My build was for work to utilize the extra cores, but definitely don't let the lower clock speed scare you off if this is the type of CPU you're in the market for.

Lol, I have a 2070 and a 1700x and the 1700x is not good enough, lots of games are not gpu bound, all assassins creed games for example are far more cpu bound.
