It depends what you are going to use it for. For gaming and application using up to 6 cores, 3600 is better. If you are doing a lot of processing and can use all 8 cores, 2700x may be better.

True, but if you start with lower power consumption, you can better OC the CPU for even better performance - providing you have adequate cooling.crymson1979 wrote: ↑ https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/td ... ,5764.html
More watts equals better performance, but also higher temperatures and more power consumption.

So fun fact.....TDP is NOT the power consumption of a chip but the minimum cooling requirement (Otherwise I would be very concerned as my cooler has a TDP of 190w). Also AMD rates their TDP at maximum boost speed where intel rates their chips at stock clocks.

If you overclock it, it will be 105W too.

TDP =/ Power usage, they are almost exactly the same CPU. It's slightly variant on your usage, but a 2700 and 2700X will have very similar power usage:

I'm building a MAME cabinet, debating between the 2600 and 2700 vs 3600. What do you guys think? I want to keep the build pretty cheap since it's only going to use for emulation
