Hey, which CPU is better, the Ryzen 5 3600, or the Ryzen 7 2700. I saw that the Ryzen 5 is more expensive and wanted to know.

Depends on the workloads.

Something like gaming the 3600 has a slight advantage when your not graphics limited.

Livestreaming gameplay the 2700 has an advantage with more cores and less issues with core prioritization.

Productivity they swap places depending on the workloads.

Giving the prices right now I would probably go with the 2700 and put the money elsewhere in the build where it would have a larger impact.

At 1080pUltra the difference is smaller than at 1080pHigh. At 1440p the difference is even lower. Infact at 1440pUltra they might be completely identical. At 4K there is no difference I believe.

That is because as you increase the graphical workload you will become more and more GPU bound and it will start turning the CPU benchmark into a GPU benchmark, especially at 4K.

Plus, like every benchmark is paired with a RTX 2080 TI. Very unlikely someone would spend $1200 on a GPU and buy a $200 cpu. Any GPU less than a 2080 TI the fps become even closer to each other.
