Just par with Ryzen 9 7950X and overpriced.

by far the MOST useless CPU you can ever buy over 7950X or 13900K. Only existed because silicon lottery while being overpriced. Only preferably for XOC.

bad cpu for price ryzen 5 3600 better

Amazing for the price. There's no point going the AMD route nowadays as Intel offers more compatibility (DDR4) and much better price to performance. Not sure why anyone would spend more for a worse processor.
