Your 5820K @ 4.4Ghz: 5080 ST / 25572 MT 2700X @ 4.15Ghz: 5183 ST / 30245 MT https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/13708810 Look i'm not denying the 5820K is a great chip, it is, why so defensive? doesn't mean the 1600 isn't, your talking about a 15% difference because of higher clocks vs a CPU that's also 3 years old now, and it was less than £200, an entry level CPU from 2016 vs the top end mainstream from 2015. WTF is that? As for Ryzen 3000, Sub £200 3600 scoring the same at 4.2Ghz as a 4.7Ghz 8700K, it's the lowest clocked CPU in the Ryzen 3000 family, the cheapest, last year the 8700K was the best Mainstream CPU Intel offered. I think we should go back to Intel's incremental drip drip BS..... Its why you still have a 5820K. wonderful.
