Worth a try, I guess. Already on a fresh new system, but one generation behind.
Me too. I'll wait a few more months before jumping to the new socket.
Just upgrade my my old reliable Ryzen 7 2700X to a Ryzen 5 5600 last week. No problems no complaints. Got a lot of help from the forum members in my decision to, I guess you would say "downgrade" going from an 8 core to a 6 core CPU. The 5600 out performs the 2700X so I am more than happy.
Now a Ryzen 5 7000X. That is a whole new ballgame.
By the way I just put the old 2700X into the old MSI X470 board with a Corsair 750 semi modular PSU 2 days ago. Just running a Prism cooler on it. Haven't decided what I would use it for yet. Why do I need 5 desktops and 4 laptops for just me and my wife. Anyway, I still need RAM, storage, wi-fi adapter and keyboard. I'll just use the integrated sound system for a while. I still have my old HD 1600 GPU that will work until I can get a new GPU and do some moving cards around. Right now I'm not to pleased with what I see happening with some of the GPU's, not just AMD, NVIDIA as well.
Hey! Glad to finally have an AMD community, been loving it here. Been teaching my 2 sons how to build PCs (13 and 16). One makes videos on youtube, and hes made a couple hundred bucks in the last 3 months. Be awesome to upgrade his rig, and surprise a friend with his old processor.
For production machines at home, I use mostly the top-end CPUs and GPUs in a Series to get the high-end power that I want for the family.
When a new series comes out like the 7000 Series CPUs, I like to build a "low-end box" in the "high-end series" like the 7600X for testing with other comparable lower-end components like GPU, DDR5 RAM, mobo, etc. at a reasonable price. When I'm done testing with these boxes, I will "GIFT raffel" them out to members of my FB group (Greatwood Tech Talk) and then build my next test box!
Can't wait to test the new Series CPUs and GPUs! 😎
While I'm not specifically looking to upgrade at the moment (I could probably squeeze another two years out of my current rig), I'd love an excuse to go ahead and move up to AM5. Then I could pass my current system off to my brother whose PC is definitely getting a little long in the tooth to keep up with modern games.
I upgraded my 10-year-old monitor to a 34" ultrawide late last year, and love the extra real estate!... but my 10-year-old PC and RX480 shudder at the thought of running any recent games at 3440x1440p, so I think it's finally time to upgrade 😛
