Ryzen 3600 ez winner. Get i5 9400f if you want 100% cpu usage while in csgo lmao
9400F here, 300-500 fps average
i5 - 6 threads
3600 - 12 threads
if you can get it for less than 130$ (it was 120$ a few months ago on ali but it got sold-out)
it gets the same fps on csgo as the 3600. even though it only has 6 cores with no hyper-threading but it doesn't matter on csgo
ryzen easiest choice. csgo won't be the only thing running. You obviously have faceit and some voice chat program right for premades.
i have i5 and ryzen is the better choice. %100 cpu usage in all games . its annoying af.
ryzen 5 1600af solid cpu and only like 85usd if you're trying to save money
This shouldn’t even be a choice. With Ryzen you get more cores, more threads, a better all around CPU, for gaming and other tasks. Also the upgrade path is possible with a B450 board, where it isn’t if you get a non Z motherboard for Intel. Also boards are far more budget friendly, and all around better in the 85-120$ price range. You get overclocking straight out of the box with Ryzen, and the stock cooler is even better. There literally isn’t one reason why the 9400F would be a better option unless you just like a Intel. The 8400 is more of a competitor to the 3600 but even then the 3600 still beats that out. ALSO, Intel will be releasing their new CPU line sometime soon. So buying an old refreshed Intel chip just makes zero sense.
i have 9400f and its much better for csgo. and cheap aswell so ezy intel if u knew something about pc
i have a i5 9400f.
this chip is cheap, powerful and runs cool
3600 has more threads but not more fps and it runs hotter.
so these threads dont add anything in cs.
It is always the question. Do you invest your money in the future or do you live in the past?
btw hltv is the wrong forum to ask and get serious answers about any hardware or peripherie :D
twice as many threads and superior single core performance, the r5 3600 offers a lot more bang for your buck.
in head to head benchmark comparisons, against the i5-9400f, the ryzen 5 3600 destroys it in core-heavy games and applications. it currently costs $25 more, but it was often 50% faster in applications and provided roughly 30% gains in modern games.
Also, don't forget when the B550 mainboards are released (june or juli) you can have an amd ryzen with PCI 4.0 support. That could help you in 2-3 years.
obv ryzen, whats the price?
Just go for i5-9600K instead of nether one of those, just bought it and cs go runs with stable 300 fps with gtx-960 gpu
cheaper in my country and better
thats an easy choice
pretty sure in terms on single core performance the ryzen does pretty much the same as the non overclockable 9400F, so it should be nearly the same for csgo
but the ryzen has double of i5's threads which is really helpfull (especially for the future), so i would obviously go for the ryzen (im an i5-8600k user myself tho)
Ryzen 3600 all the way, just don't forget to NEVER buy an old B350/B450 motherboard like I did or you'll have to update the BIOS with another CPU
-More fps than the 3600 in most titles
old thread, OP bought AMD, nothing to see here
wait for 10th generation intol
amd will absolutely rekt by it
i have the i5-9400f and 1660 super it performs well in cs about 300fps on high settings 1920 x 1080 whilst running many other programs in the background such as discord, google chrome, utorrent running torrents, spotify
I have an r5 3600.. so does my gf. I have an 1060 6gb and she has an 1660 6gb
We play both with 300fps +, i play in 1280x1024 and she on Full hd
i paid 999 reais on the r5 and i am happy as hell
where is the finnish intel fanboy guy to bash all you non fanboys with supreme fanboyism?????
It doesnt really matter, future u can upgrade both couple levels up like to high end ryzens or high end intel processors.
Both Intel and AMD will make new sockets for new generation so that what people are saying amd is more future proof is kinda lie because in couple years u still must uprgrade for new socket if u want go with the flow thats the way how it works.
3600 i think , Ryzen better for csgo
3600 have better fps in every game
also more cores and threads
no brainer choice.
3600/3600X better future proof for sure and today many thinks change every month so be smart and get 3600 or 3600X
