    Ryzen boost isn't time limited.

    The 1700X is still a super relevant chip with plenty of life left.
    Agreed

    but if you need some extra bandwidth from your ram (if you have nice ram) a 3 series over a 1 series is notably better

    I wonder if the higher clocks mean:
    1.) higher all core overclocks and stability
    2.) lower (clock relative) voltages
    3.) lower (clock relative) temps
    ???

    I would like very much to hear some suggestions on ASUS ROG STRIX B-350 GAMING/Ryzen 5 3600, CPU upgrade

    Are you upgrading that board with an existing CPU to a 3600?

    If you don't own a board, I wouldn't be buying a B350 these days.

    Sry, let me put it right: I already have, for some time now, an ASUS ROG STRIX B-350 GAMING/Ryzen 5 2600,and I'm thinking of a CPU upgrade only. What would you suggest considering Price/Value?

    Well as a general rule only upgrade when something feels slow, so where are you finding performance problems? What programs do you run?

    The 3600 is an awesome chip, I have one running a VR setup quite happily, but from a 2600 I have to wonder how much of an upgrade it will feel.

    I don't have any performance problems but due to my work that includes highly intensive arithmetic calculations, I would like to speed-up things, say 40-50%. So, the question is (keeping budjet low) what is the optimal solution for this...a 3700 or maybe a Threadripper 1920X + MB?

    Possibly depends on the nature of your calculations, if they use AVX256 then you want to be on a Zen 2 rather than an old Threadripper for example as Zen 2 doubled the performance for those instructions. If they are integer, then architecture changes won't have helped much.

    Going from 6 cores to 8 is a nice 33% increase off the bat, so a 3700X is worth a look. Increased cache size and higher clock speeds will hopefully nudge you the rest of the way.

    Basically, get the biggest CPU in your budget. 3900X is what you really want, but those are a bit pricey. 3800X isn't much faster than a 3700X, and I doubt anything slower than a 3700X is worth spending on.

    This makes the 3700X a much worse value, I've already seen the 3900X and 3800X get pushed a lot closer to its price point, nevermind the XT variants themselves. It's a good but expensive time to be a PC enthusiast, the upgrade war is back on
