The only reason it's that close is that the 2700x has two more cores than the 3600 (8 vs 6). Look at the single-core and quad-core comparisons, and also note that the 3600 might be hampered by RAM in the first 2 benchmarks.
I think the 3600's benchmarks are promising
Edit: I assume you're saying "AMD won't be happy" that the 3600 isn't performing as well as they implied, which is why I phrased my post as a debate. If you meant something else, then I can change the wording.
There was some leak about the 12 core having been gotten to 6Ghz under LN2, and that they were able to do 4.8Ghz on air, and 5.0Ghz on water with semi unreasonably high voltages. Then again, like all things, it could also be lies.
I think I would rather be able to do just 4.8Ghz as opposed to 4.9Ghz. The idea of being so closed to 5Ghz and not reaching it would lead me to do whatever it takes to get it lol. I also prefer a bronze medal to a silver medal.
I am eagerly awaiting results. Zen/Zen+ was not enough for me to jump, but Zen2 might be (if it performs better in gaming than my 7700k in SFF conditions - or specifically, with a l9i/l9a heatsink using the stock fan ).
