    Great news for me and my Tomahawk Max Mobo. Although I might hold off for Zen4 and do a complete upgrade then, ddr5, PCIE 5.0 etc. if all goes well.

    I expect most people likely will. But having that option for down the line is never a bad thing. When 6000 launches and 5000 gets cheaper, people might get a 5000 chip rather than upgrade to the new 'AM5' platform as a short term boost.

    Personally I don't intend upgrading for a few years and the B550 should have enough headroom to cope with that.
