Should I wait for ryzen 3000 series for my HTPC/gaming rig

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So this computer is the computer for our living room TV. I have a dedicated gaming setup in the basement but I will play on this TV. The problem is my mom wanted to get a 4k tv for that room and i just installed it. The gpu i have is r9 280 from xfx and it can't drive 4k 60 in war thunder and gta v. so i am getting a gtx 1080 but the computer is based on 8230e. it will bottleneck the gpu. I could either get intel's 9th gen cpus for their IPC over ryzen 2000 but with ryzen 3000 less then a month away from launching I don't know if I should wait.

You can just run games at 1080p on the 4k display and it'll look fine. Navi is also coming on the same day, and the 5700 looks pretty good assuming it's barely behind the XT model.

that's highly dependent on the display. Some fare ok, some do badly

Wait and see what Ryzen 3000 does to current gen part prices. I wouldn't be too shocked if you started seeing used Ryzen 7 1700s on eBay for $80-90.

well if it 350 i’ll get it but i don’t think so. plus i like nVidia’s Geforce experience software with shadow play. amd’s video driver interface feels way to streamlined for me.

Relive functions exactly the same as shadowplay?

I just like nVidia’s interface better and a used 1080 will be cheaper. But i am more worried about which cpu to get.
