    Im trying to upgrade from a 4790k. Right now where I live, the 5600x is going for 350€ where as the 10700k is 290€. By the price alone i can tell the 10700k is the better pick, but im willing to pay the extra if the 5600X is better by more than just a little bit.

    How things have changed. 5600X = $350 @ Microcenter .. $330 Best Buy 10700K = $270 @ Microcenter .. $325 Best Buy If you're watching this today, the 10700k is the better buy.

      Just checked into MC and it looks like they've dropped the 5600X to $290. 10700K still holding at $270. I'm honestly thinking about building an Intel for me and a Ryzen for the Wifey.

    Right now in April of 2021 a 10700K is $320, and a 5600x is $439 in USD. Right with Intel you will need to get a new motherboard, but if you're a sane person who doesn't upgrade the PC hardware every generation like most normal people, the value here is with intel. Intel being price to performance, what?

    i7-10700K isn't mid range 😂. it is the first truly best all around i7 ever made since Haswell and the fastest 8 core when it was launched a year ago. Basically i9-9900K with a discount, includes integrated graphics, so you don't necessarily need a graphics card. 5600X is a worse product in every singleway minus the efficiency or the platform useful for people upgrading from Zen 1 or something like that, i7 with undervolt (not overclock), can get 7-10% higher singlethread speed or putting on the 5600X level while you get 8 cores.

      i7-10700K can get better singlethread perfomance with a very easy undervolt, at stock it beats the 5600X, the i7 has 8 cores with hyperthreading/SMT and high frequency instead of 6 cores that have lower frequency. i7-10700K also includes integrated graphics ( you can buy the KF version that lacks that). If you want a faster i7, 11700K exists with new microarchitecture and respective IPC increase, PCIe Gen 4, 50% faster iGPU.

    Take price to performance with a grain of salt on older videos. Obviously Jay can't predict pricing changes and availability and can only base his prognosis for this moment in time. Still a legend. I got the 10700kf for $249 at microcenter. I was deciding between the that and the 9900k at the same price! Don't fall for the AMD hype when the cost is significantly more after intel drops their pants.

      @Anas El Gharras The "K" part means the CPU can be overclocked. "Non-K" means it cannot be overclocked. This is only for Intel CPUs. You should google "pc part picker" so you can tailor the pc to your budget. The 5600 is great but its also expensive now because of high demand. The other processor you might want to consider is the 3700x. Either way, all of them are great and there's no wrong answer.

    These days, you can find the 10850k for 319.99, the 10700k for 249.99 and 10600k for 189.99 at Microcenter. However, you could get Best buy to match those prices. I was able to get the 10700k for 249.99 from BB. I'd say that is a good deal for the Intel CPU, as the 5600x is usually out of stock and if you can find it in stock, it is overprice.

    The Intel is now $20 less at Microcenter, which makes it look like the better deal, despite the higher power consumption, heat and lack of cooler. I mean, sure, I can buy less performance for less total money going AMD, but that 27% argument no longer i s valid. I'm shopping for parts now and was expecting to buy AMD, not I'm less sure.

    First, I've always been an AMD fan and happy to see Intel's monopoly get broken. Got to love the new CPU prices. This said, I'm running two systems, a 5600X and an I5-9600K, both on MSI midrange mobos. The 5600X has almost zero headroom and barely can meet stated specs for max turbo unless running 3600Mhz ram. And not just any 3600Mhz, but good stuff. I have cheap 3600Mhz with terrible timings, and I can't overclock above 4.68GHZ without tweaking RAM timings. I could probly get 4.8Ghz if I overclocked the RAM a little and tightened timings. Or just buy much better RAM. Intel i5-9600K...lots of headroom and not nearly as RAM speed/timing limited. I understand that this is expected based on how each manufacturer builds their CPUs. Intel natively has lower latency on better silicon. AMD's tech makes multicore cheaper, at a cost of latency, but the new single CCX helps a lot with that IPC-killing design feature. Lesson's learned from FX CPUs...latency kills.

    Well, actually i7-10700KF costs $10 less in Canada than Ryzen 5 5600X. And it overclocks really well - way better than 5600X. And it has 8 threads, not 6. And Intel Motherboards don't have USB connectivity issues. Realistically i7-10700KF is better option. Neither Intel nor AMD will keep the current socket since next gen CPUs (except of Intel gen 11) will need a new socket anyways because of DDR5 standard. i7-10700KF + Z590 is a better purchase than Ryzen 5 5600X + X570.

    They were virtually the same price here where i live, but the power consumption of the 5600x seems to be much better, and also a good motherboard for it is cheaper to come by. I ended up choosing the 5600x.

    Seems like Intel is a no brainer. Why would I pay an extra $60 to get the 5600X over a 10700K?

      Especially when you look at min fps and 1% lows. 6 core is not a good idea. 8 c/16t is a must.
