    Motherboard Longevity / Ryzen 7 2700X, will it be likely that more CPUs of this socket will be released?

      It's been a LONG time since I have built AMD.  I feel that time may have come for me now.  If I purchase a Motherboard that supports the Ryzen 7 2700X as of November 2018, will there be a likelihood of being able to upgrade to one or two more powerful CPUs of the same socket to fit said motherboard? Or would I be buying into the end of a line of CPUs?  Forgive my lack of knowledge. 


      Basically I find Intel's i9 overpriced and the i7 being at the end of it's line.  This makes the Rysen 7 2700X look appealing if there is any chance that I could upgrade in 2 years or so? 

       

      What would be involved in that or is that not an option?

       

      Thank you.
