While I want AMD to dethrone Intel to break up their monopoly it doesn't look like they're going to do so in gaming performance quite yet and hopefully AMD can gain the lead until Intel can produce 7nm.
If I were to build an entirely new system I would go for AMD, hands down. However if you have a 2700X or 6700K it seems it would be a waste of money to upgrade to a 3700X/3800X for gaming.
Thanks to intel is isn't
It's very sketchy review, don't base any opinions yet.
With proper motherboard, bios, ram speed, I expect the 3600 to perform much better(than what this review suggests) than the 6700k. Especially with modern games the gap should continue to increase.
Perhaps similar to the 8700k.
I'm not saying it'd be a solid upgrade, but an upgrade nonetheless.
For the core count & perf. could be a very impressive $200 CPU.
