    Zen 3 has arrived on desktop. Are you making the move?

    I am sure many will,but at current pricing unlikely in my case. I might hold out and see what happens next year,but I am pessimistic about it.

    I am not upgrading right now from my 3700X but will in about 2 years with a used Zen 3 CPU. Right now I'm happy with its performance and don't need more for gaming @ 1440p. I bought it 10 months ago, hoping Zen 3 would be great (which it is) and hoping for a great upgrade 2-3 years down the line, getting a used Zen 3 CPU. Looks like everything is lining up and I am grateful for the continued support of the AM4 socket.

    Even with all the noise on price, they're sold out everywhere so the question's a nonstarter.

    They look pretty juicy but I'm happy to wait until the new year, see where the price/performance on these and Rocket Lake is at that point.

    Highly unlikely, I am likely to wait for socket AM5, go for a new motherboard and CPU then and leave the way open for a further CPU upgrade, on the same motherboard, a few years later. Added to which, there's nothing wrong with my R7 2700.

    Re: QOTW: Are you upgrading to AMD Ryzen 5000 Series?

    Yes, although i may have to wait for better pricing. I'll pass on my i7 6700K/mobo to my sons rig, to replace the i5 2500K that is still going very strong even in recent games.

    I'll grab one hopefully cheap in a year or maybe two to upgrade my 2600. Long live AM4.

    Re: QOTW: Are you upgrading to AMD Ryzen 5000 Series?

    I like the improvements they have made, but the cost increase for particularly the 5600X is too much compared to the performance increase and the 12/16 core CPUs aren't really in my budget as a consumer. Plus I got a 3600 last year and I don't see the point in upgrading next generation for anything. I'm also more interested in am5.

    Re: QOTW: Are you upgrading to AMD Ryzen 5000 Series?

    I built my system with some future-proofing in mind... e.g. X570 motherboard - so may get tempted. Depends on work situation, less keen on spending out on big-ticket PC components since the pandemic has taken hold.

    And my current 3900X isn't exactly a slouch - so it's a tough sell at this exact moment :-|

    If it boosted my FPS drastically at 1440p I would.

    Re: QOTW: Are you upgrading to AMD Ryzen 5000 Series?

    NO.
    When i upgrade again it might be to AMD 6 or 7000 series, for now i am covered, and a Danish pension do not make it possible to upgrade just like you feel like it.

    nope,
    Last upgrade took me 5-10 years to get round to.

    Re: QOTW: Are you upgrading to AMD Ryzen 5000 Series?

    yes - My ivylake rig with 1070gtx and ddr3 going to youngest and new 5950x + 6900xt on order.

    OFC new stuff round the corner but PCIe4, DDR4 and my first all AMD system for many many years will be a hell of a step up from where I am today.

    Re: QOTW: Are you upgrading to AMD Ryzen 5000 Series?

    yes, upgrading from my overclocked i7 920, it would be nice to wait for DDR 5 and Zen 4 on 5nm, but the 4 cores are starting to struggle in some games now...
    Although I might get a 3600 to start with and get the CPU later, as I have my eye on the 6800XT as well.
