3700X Vs 9900K?

General speaking, which is faster? I know intel somewhat has the advantage in gaming, but across the board, which of the two is faster?

My guess is the 3700 because pcie 4.0 allows you to use the new gen of NVME ssds that do up to 70000 MB/S

they are pretty close

(If y'all) ain’t ready for the old murder, then what you gonna do with the new me?

if all you do is gaming and don't care about security, Intel is the way to go. anything else, Ryzen all the way.

Honestly they're about the same. The 3700X will be faster in some applications and the 9900k will be faster in others. I personally would go with the 3700x. If you get an X570 board you get PCIE 4.0. Also you have the ability to upgrade the CPU since AMD has already stated that the next Ryzen processors being released later this year will be AM4. And you don't have all the vulnerability issues that they are finding on the Intel processors. Not to mention the 3700x is cheaper.

The only way I would consider a 9900k over any Ryzen processor would be if you have a 2080ti and game at 1080p high refresh rate. Otherwise it's Ryzen all day long.

9900k unless you also render, then a tuned 3700X with a properly fast RAM (3600-3800MHz fine tuned as well).

It's hard to justify the i9-9900K for the price unless you're specifically gaming. I went with an i9-9900KF because it was on sale and I didn't want to deal with possible BIOS issues with Ryzen.

The upgrade path feather in AMD's cap was very meaningful a couple years ago when AM4 was promised to be supported for a few years. With no guarantee for new AM4 processors beyond this year, I'm not sure how much that matters with a Zen 2 system.

With the 3800X being much closer in price to the 3700X than it was on release, it's easier to justify the price premium.

It's literally user choice, i personally follow Intel these days.
AMD are killing it these days though, so just make your own decision, you'll be happy either way.

I like to have fun.
