i have 5600x really happy with it tho the stock cooler is kinda ass, temps get to like 75 sometimes (although they say its normal even up to 95 with stock cooler)
Idk how much you need the CPU upgrade rn, but if you could i would indeed wait for the new ryzen gen.
I have a 5600X myself and havent had any issues whatsoever.
How da fak is that even a question? HOW DA FAK IS THAT EVEN A FUCKING QUESTION?
Wait new overpriced not stock Ryzens? For what? For 2012 year game?
It depends on how much more you'd have to spend to get the 12600k +motherboard over the 5600x. 12600k is superior no doubt but if you have to pay much more for it than it's not worth it.
Depends on your budget & expectations.
finally intel got some good performance and tech to show but again it sips alot of power so their not as efficent and output more heat. in addition the p-core and e-core setup is the first generation so software optimization and useage is limited/WIP.
edit: the intel chips have more performance in games BUT frametimes and lows are higher on ryzen which results in a smoother experience. you also should know that no matter your resolution you wont feel the difference in max/avg fps but in the lows and 0.1%s
In General i recommend you to get the ryzen as the plattform is matured AF and you dont have to spend extra cash on overclocking features.
12600k with ddr5 is kinda future proof while 5600x with ddr4 will become outdated next year
Ryzen if you only want good CSGO performance, Intel in every other case
motherboard z690 too expensive
take 5600x or 5800x + 100$ b550 motherboard
ofc intel but only if u buy good cooler(like noctua d15)
the only thing intel cpu's are better at is lower latency afaik calyptos say dat
I have Ryzen 5 5600X and I don't regret switching to Ryzen, its great.
in this economy buy intel if its cheaper
but if the price is right buy the ryzen
right now ryzens are just superior
Ryzen 65W, Intel 125W. So the Intel one consumes more current, gets much hotter and needs a better cooler. So I'd get the Ryzen.
for only game it's almost the same ( but for game with the cpu is in priority the AMD is better for csgo more fps with AMD )
for work the intel is better
but you need to use w11 for have full use of the E-cores
mortherboard are expensive
you need to choice if you go for ddr5 or ddr4 so in the time you gonna need to change the Motherboard
Ryzen, they always support a wide range of mobos unlike Intel CPUs and also consumes less power
