Why get this when a R7 3700X is the same price?

have one runs very good almost the same as 9700k notice no difference at all in any of my games. 2 avg frame rate drop and is cheaper


Average

Offered pretty much same performance as i7-9700K but without ability to OC and has lower base clock and all-core boost clock. Would opt to buy i7-9700K instead because this CPU is priced same as the OC-able counterpart.

A quite balance choice, even though the price is not far from 9700k. If you are not interesting in OC and just want a stable gaming environment, a good choice is here.
