Ryzen 3rd Gen or 2nd Gen?

Which would be the better upgrade path 2700x or Ryzen 5 3600x? x470 or x570? With all this new AMD Tech coming im a little lost lol.

Just Google it. They have comparison charts all over the place

I’m still rocking fx6300 best money ever spent.

FX 8320 here but wanting to upgrade and get on the ddr4 platform so when I upgrade my graphics card I dont have a huge bottleneck

Are they introducing a new socket or something?

No, just a new motherboard x570 and a faster CPU supposedly with a better IPC and such.

In that case just check out comparisons online. If it’s the same socket, you can always upgrade again later.


It’s magically compatible

If you can, go for 3rd gen, if not, make sure that the board is forward compatible and you’re good to go :slight_smile:

Wait for the 5th gen

To far off, PC may not even last that long that I have now lol

The new chips coming out on July 7th will have pretty decent improvements over the older generation. There are some leaked benchmarks out there. I am half tempted to upgrade from my Ryzen 7 1800X to one of the newer ones…

I’ll wait for another year and half for my mortgage to end and then go for a new Ryzen build. Hopefully my i5 haswell will manage until then. So far I can’t complain.

Yea, I think ill wait 1 month more before I start the Ryzen upgrade and see about a GPU Upgrade this month… cause The Ryzen 5 3600/3600x is looking nice :wink:
