I would like to upgrade my current CPU (Ryzen 7 2700x) to an (Ryzen 9 3900X).

 

1) Does this motherboard (see below) support the Ryzen 9 3900X; I have been reading and I am just not sure if its a good idea?
a) Is there thorough QA detailing what motherboard works best with 3900x?
2) Known issues to look out for?
3) Any specific call outs for this upgrade?

 

Not as concerned about cost, looking for optimal functionality.

 

Thanks in advance.

The end goal... be able to apply ultra+ settings @ 4K , (With all the bells and whistles) ie. G-SYNC, HDR, 80k:1+ CT, 1 m/s or less RT 90+avg FPS -> Still a ways away, but, here's a start


PS: Depending on future product releases/tech advances, I may shift away from Nvidia in lieu for Radeon and associated hardware.

 

(I already transitioned to AMD CPU's as I'm confident they will take the number one spot soon!)
