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

Cheaper yet faster than the 3700x in gaming.


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.
