AMD 3rd gen Ryzen R5 3600 vs 2nd gen R7 2700

Reading the specs for Vue and it seems e-onsoftware prefer Intel over AMD due to AVX support.

I would like to upgrade my present I7-4770S to a newer cpu. Preferably 6 or 8 core with hyperthreading, giving 12 or 16 threads.

Ryzen 5 and 7 CPUs seem to be favorably priced but I am concerned about issues with Vue and Photoshop/Lightroom.

A 3rd gen Ryzen - R5 3600  (6 core/12 threads - 3.6 ghz) and a 2nd gen Ryzen - R7 2700 (8 core/16 threads - 3.2 ghz) are within my budget. Also a X470 or X570 mobo. I usually purchase Gigabyte as I've had good look with them. Asrock is my second favorite.

Presently I am doing more photography work (Photoshop/Lightroom) then 3D (Vue Creator, MOI3D, DAZ Studio, 3DCoat).

Anyone here using a Ryzen cpu and how has your experience and performance been?
Any thoughts on the R5-3600 vs R7-2700?

From e-onsoftware site:

Recommended System Specs

Windows 64 bit (Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10), Mac OS X v10.13+,
Multi-core CPU (Intel QuadCore, Core I7, or Mac Pro), AVX compliant,
8GB+ of RAM,
4GB+ of free Hard Disk space (on the drive hosting the OS),
We recommend a graphics card containing at least 4 GB of VRAM with a 3D Mark score of 10,000 or better.

Thanks kindly

I would go for the latest Ryzen 3000 chips. I went from a Mac Pro 2008 to self built Ryzen 1700x to the latest AMD chips. Just make sure you have really good cooling. These are really hot cpu's.

Ryzen series isn't that hot, with Ryzen 5 1600 3,8ghz I've had slightly over 30 degrees,  but I've been using Dark Rock Pro 2 with 1600 and now Dark Rock Pro 4 with 3700x.

Thanks for all the replies. However the R5-3600 and R7-2700 are both within my budget, so a R7-3700 is not.

Between THOSE two cpus which would you recommend? I think it would be better to have the additional cores of the R7-2700 over the faster cpu speed of the 6ix core R5-3600?
