I'm coming over to AMD from Intel and I had a few questions regarding the Ryzen 2700 vs the 2700x

Jump to solution

I'm coming over to AMD. Intel prices seem to be sky high right now, and if I can get at least ballpark performance for $50-$100 cheaper, I'm totally jumping on that! I've settled on either the 2700 or the 2700x, and just had a few questions about the difference between them.

The best I can tell, the 2700 and the 2700x are equivalent to an Intel chip, and the K version of that Intel chip (like a 7700 and a 7700k). They'll get similar performance at stock speeds, but the x chips can overclock and get higher performance, is that right?

Currently the 2700 is approximately $40 cheaper than the 2700x. I've never messed around with CPU overclocking before, and it's something I can always start to gain experience with but I'm always gunshy to try it because I wouldn't accidentally want to fry the CPU. Would it be better to put that $40 towards RAM, or spend the extra $40 and get into overclocking? I'll mainly be gaming, but I do use Premiere Elements for some
