If you can find one, yes. Unless you need to take advantage of all 8 (or 16) cores.

for gaming its faster, but for gaming and streaming, or rendering, editing, multi-core workload this 3700x will be a bit faster

for this price id honestly rather get a 10700kf, 260 bucks rn, and a z490 will run you maybe 180 ish bucks, so you for 50 bucks less than 3700x bundle, you'd have a faster gaming cpu

i was gonna disagree with you regarding the faster part, but then i read you mean gaming, for which i think you may be correct since gaming is single application. But for all other purposes, including video editing and processing, the Ryzen 7 listed here will be faster and at a significant less power draw (65W vs 125W). The pricing is thus justifiable.

I am astounded every time I read how much power Intel CPUs use compared to AMD (and especially ARM). It's just crazy how bad it is.

Quote from FuschiaPiranha299 :
dont trust the "tdp" as how much power it will draw, thats not what tdp is. only way to find power draw is real-life benchmarking and testing. Ryzen tdp is very wacky and a 10700kf is able to reach way higher clocks than a 3700x, so it can justify more heat and power. DONT TRUST TDP ALONE TO TELL EFFICIENCY, ITS NOT ACCURATE
How come you described Zen2 TDP is "wacky" when comparing to a 10700K? BTW PL2 spec is for non-overclock. I don't know if 5.1G vs 4.4G is way higher clocks but higher clocks not necessarily mean anything. A Pentium 4 can run at 5G too.

At this price point 10700 and 3700x is a draw. Just pick one makes more sense or you believe

True, but in technology terms next year is not soon.

I am using a 7 years old technology now. Two years old sounds pretty sweet to me.

This would be sweet depending on which motherboard and if you get a good 10700KF and you can get all 8 Core stable at 5.0Ghz with a good AIO cooler.
