    yeah wish more reviewers also looked at little thing like that, or just screen cap the runs showing the frame stability.

    But fan boys will never accept minimums are more important.

    Yeah it's an interesting topic. It does seem that overall, having the extra threads can smooth out gameplay. 9900K in that benchmark test would have been good to see. HUB did a benchmark recently which showed how the new Ryzen chips may not net the top average results, but their miniums are higher. Minimums are more important than average, when the average is already high enough on both chips to be acceptable. Even more so when most people are probably still gaming on 60hz screens. Not enthusiasts obviously.
    I could watch DF for hours and hours, their content is extremely technical and interesting and generally well above what most reviewers give you. Most reviewers just chuck hardware into a case, turn it on - run a benchmark and post the results, while DF researches the actual technology and figures out how it runs, why it runs the way it does and gets inside developer knowledge on different techniques and methods for game and hardware development when they can

    Richard did mention the 9900k does not have the stutters in Far Cry 5 that the 9700k has - so hyperthreading is important in that game. I even went and eventually found a frametime video comparing the 9700k and 8700k and the issue was in that person's video as well - even the older 8700k is much smoother in Far Cry 5 than a 9700k and that's despite the 9700k having higher FPS

    And yet, someone who jump on Tomshardware, sees this graph and thinks the 9700k is going to clearly be the better cpu compared to the 3700x and 3900x for playing far cry 5.




    I imagine they'll do the same video but for the 9900k and 3900x soon.

    So here's the thing...

    The 2600 is currently sitting around US$125 on Amazon:

    The 2700 is currently US$199 but has been as low as US$150 recently:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...language=en_US

    I'm just keeping an eye for now but if say the 2600 drops close to US$100 or the 2700 hits around US$130 on Black Friday would that make them be a better buy than the 3600?

    I think he's an accountant, so that might be pushing it.

    If the 2700 hits $150 i'll replace my new 2600x with it and overclock it, if the 2700x hit ~$175 i'll have that.

    Which makes no sense, unless you're making videos / rendering stuff.

    Depends what the 3600 costs, I think it's worth paying a premium for as the boost above the others is quite nice.
