How does this compare to the new 1600 AF?
it would be like comparing a slightly slower version of 2600 to a 2700.

I bought this earlier this year. Performs great with gaming @ 1080p and a rx570. You definitely will not be able to set everything to Ultra or Max settings, but it does very well at High / Very high details.

With compute power I'm also very impressed. This isn't a 9600k or a 3700x, and don't expect it to be, but it can stream, decompress, and other high compute things very well.

Highly recommend for the price. If you're wanting the best of the best look somewhere else, but if you want very very good, this is it.

PS: I've highly disliked AMD and favored Intel until recently. They've really stepped up their game!

Alright, so I'm still rocking an Intel i5 6500 paired with a R9 390. I keep seeing the prices on these AMD processors dropping. Are they going to continue to drop, or should I jump on this?
Yes wait for 3 series at this price

This is a bit overpriced compared to what it's been for the past 2-3 months.

Will this work with a Dell Percision T3600?
No, that only takes Intel Xeon processors.

If I were to get this and the ASRock X470 Master MB, along with some Patriot Viper 16GB RAM, do you think it would handle 4k video editing in premiere ok? I don't do any gaming, just need an editing workstation that can let me edit smooth in 4k.

Excellent value if you're building a server or anything along those lines.

If you're gaming - might as well buy a Ryzen 5 3600 as the per-threat performance increase makes it a more attractive chip than the 2700.
I wouldn't say "might as well buy a Ryzen 5 3600" unless you can point me to one for $140. For the price, this is a good deal.

I just built a system with the 2700x (paid about $20 more around BF) paired with a GTX 1660 Super and have very good midrange gaming at 1080p. I would expect very similar performance with this cpu.

Ok so there is some fundamental mis-understanding on why these 2 series 8 core CPUs are priced so low compared to the 3 series. The main reason why is because these chips are manufactured at 12nm+ process with Global Foundries. It's an old process but AMD is contractually obliged to use Global Foundries 12nm+ process for a bit longer. Thus they keep making 2 series chips and sell them for super cheap.

The 3 series chips use TSMC's 7nm process. TSMC is oversubscribed for 7nm capacity. Everyone wants to use it. So most likely AMD will not drop the price of their 3 series chips any time soon.

Well, the reason why you are not able to set everything to 1080p Ultra or Max settings is due to the RX570. You are GPU bottlenecked in this scenario, limited by the frame buffer and frame rate the 570 will be able to output (albeit it's a great card for the price, probably the best in it's tier). This has absolutely nothing to do with your Ryzen 2700, which is more than capable of delivering at 1440p or higher as long it is paired with a mid-high tier GPU, such as the 5700, 2070 Super or 2080 range..

Oh, and I might add that in terms of compute power, the 2700 owns the 9600 any day, all day.

My bad I meant the i7 not the i5.and def know my bottleneck. Just saying that the proc rocks.

Agreed. This is a great deal too. Torn whether to go with this or keep the 2700x I have on order; could go either way. The 2700x costs me $35 more, but with free shipping, better binning, higher base and boost frequencies, power envelope and better cooler in the Wraith Prism. Will probably keep the 2700x and then the upgrade path will be a 3950 or 4xxx equivalent in 3-5 years..
Incidentally, I'm on an RX570 as well for now. More than capable in the older sim and strategy games I tend to play. Looking to determine if I'm going 5700 or 5900XT...
