Ryzen 2600 vs 1700 for Streaming

I'm helping a friend upgrade his PC. He wants to be able to stream games, and edit and post videos. I'm not sure what software he uses.

He's on a tighter budget, but since he only really needs mobo, CPU and ram, my first thought was R5 2600, based on testing by GamersNexus.

When pricing out the build, I noticed that the R7 1700 is only $5 more than the 2600. Assuming average overclocks for both chips (2600 @ 4.1 and 1700 @ 3.9), is the sacrifice of frequency and minor IPC improvements worth the upgrade to 16 threads?

Thanks in advance.

Two extra cores will beat the IPC improvement between 1st / 2nd gen Ryzen and 200mhz frequency bump any day. Just make sure he does his research when buying his motherboard, and be sure to buy decently fast memory to improve the core complex latency.

It is what it is...

For multi tasking like you mention, the additional cores of the ryzen 7 will be a big boost.

For streaming the 1700, no contest.

Ryzen 7. Second-gen Ryzen can hit slightly higher clockspeeds and needs a bit less voltage than first-gen Ryzen, but they're the exact same chip in almost all aspects. Ryzen 7 sacrifices 5% of its single-core performance for an extra 30% in multicore based on your numbers, and if your friend is streaming and rendering, that'll be important.

I'll tell him to get the 1700 then.
He's getting the x470 Taichi because of the great VRM and it's only $165 right now on Newegg.

I miss the old REP system. Thanks everyone.

If you are planning to stream games than definitely extra cores gives you a better perfromance. Considering that there is only 5$ difference in Ryzen 2600 and 1700 i will recommend you to go with Ryzen 7 1700

I chose the 1700x over the 2600 on black friday. Paulshardware did a 2600 @ 4.2 and a 1700 @ 3.9 I believe and the 1700 was faster in games and more cores for streaming.

I'm not sure if you guys already built the rig or not but Microcenter is still having great Ryzen deals right now. $100 for Ryzen 5 1600 and $150 for Ryzen 7 1700. Plus you get $30 off when you buy a mobo with a CPU. So technically $70 for 1600 and $120 for 1700X. The performance you get for your $ is insane... For your friend's needs 1700 or 1700X is the better option.
