As the title said, which is better overall in terms of cost to efficiency. Would be paired with a 2070 super and 32gb ram

CPU would be used for r6 siege and the new COD as well as other random games.

aside from the 3800X being less expensive somehow, there's never gonna be a good reason to buy it unless you cannot buy (as in sold out, out of stock, discontinued) a 3700X.

The 3700X quite honestly is a more thrifty purchase. The 3800X is slightly faster but this will not make much difference to your gaming. I often wonder why AMD bothered with the 3800X, the logical step up on the 3700X is the 3900X.

3700X replaces the 2700

3800X replaces the 2700X

more or less.

To get that extra $70 out of people who don't know any better lol. That's literally why it exists.

That might be a bit overstated - there are applications where the 3800X is definitely faster, if not by a lot. They just aren't game engines. If I were kitting out a bunch of corporate dev boxes I wouldn't rule out the 3800X.

It sure is a narrow niche, though, and one does have to wonder if it's worth the binning effort.
