Re: I have an AMD Phenom II processor, I'm looking to upgrade what is a good one?

Hello Chris,

The Phenom II platform has already been phased out, your processor might be seated on the AM2+/AM3/AM3+ motherboard, which are also come to the end of their best time. So I would not suggest you to make any upgrade, but refresh your whole system if possible.

Best Regards,

It mostly depends on your motherboard capabilities.Maybe it can even support AMD FX CPUs

Wait a few more weeks when AMD releases Ryzen and Socket AM4. It's going to carry a 60% IPC improvement over current processors there's no reason to buy one.

Ryzen is AM4 so you will need a new motherboard, CPU and memory to upgrade

Not sure if a DDR3 version will exist like Intel Skylake does?
