@Noxia i use my computer/game at 1440p and there's not a lot that would tax a 7700x+7900xt currently to warrant an upgrade tbh. not even sure i'd want to upgrade to the 9000 ryzens/radeons unless there's a compelling reason to

Yep, yet you still get that urge to change lol. I get it, It's in the same logic that I'll get tempted by new GPU's despite the fact there are barely any pc games that push GPUs for the right reasons anyway.

yes totally lol. need to resist any temptation :cry:

Stick with your 7700x, I have the least powerful CPU in the household now, but I did upgrade, from a 5600G to a 5700G. :D
I really would like an AM5 equivalent, but hard to justify given the high prices of the 8600G/8700G.
haha you need to stop computing like a serf and join the AM5 crew

@Journey i'd have thought that unless you needed the cpu performance, a cheap gpu on the 5700G would outperform a 8600/8700G for gaming?
unless your aim was compact and low power?

I stopped playing games for a good while, so downsized, then I got into OC'ing the APU's which I found fun so stuck with them. Have a GPU I could install but that is boring. :D

TBH. Considering the games I mainly play, and the actual time spent doing so, I could probably get by with an APU.

At the rate we are going at we are still going to be tweaking Zen4 when Zen5 arrives and if you upgrade, that tweak path is going to start all over again :D

Some good news I read today though said AMD have changed their roadmap and were going to support AM5 up till 2026, I'll see if I can find the news post, but that means at least Ryzen 10K will come to AM5, and last I heard about Ryzen 10K is they were going to move the 3D cache to the IO die on X3D CPU's so all cores can use it.


And in other news, zen6 info https://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Z...alizing-designs-in-a-few-months.830024.0.html

it feels like Zen5 will be a Zen1 moment, with Zen6 being the modern equivalent of the Zen2 revolution.

i.e. the arch first, then the packaging that allows the arch to reach its potential.

i'm slowly moving into the new PC excitement, but i'm hoping that I can hold it off until Zen6.

AMD covering all bases now if EPYC comes to AM5, specialised CPU's for multicore, gaming, IGPU/APU.
