mobo to support future gen , a key concern?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

take B350 as example for longest 3 gen cpu support.

who really upgrade in 3 yrs?

 

say ryzen 1200 vs 1600 on budget

low end $100 + mid range mobo$100

vs

mid range cpu $200 + low end mobo $70

 

in more practicle case that most buyers gets mid range cpu at first, should they even care for future upgrades?

Depends on the person. Some people upgrade every generation, some people wait significant time (10 years?) and everything in between. I personally tend to upgrade around the 4 to 5 year mark for cpu/motherboard swaps, so I expect to need a new motherboard.

B350 update the bios then you can use it for even 4th gen Ryzen

Why

1st, my question is as title

2nd, b350 was just an example

3rd, b350 bios havent released for any model for 4th gen

4th, b350 is most likely not supporting 4th gen

it just matters what kind of buyer you are. I make changes about every 2-3 years to my build. I'd love to toss in a 4900x (assuming its anther 12+ core chip) into my b450 board but the other part of me goes buy a new board so that my old CPU can replace my 6600k for server work then the 6600k becomes media center or maybe replaces my file server CPUs

Upgrading doesn't automatically mean buying something new. If you buy top end now, you might not need to upgrade in next 3-5 years. If motherboard can use 3 generations, you can get top-end from last supported gen used. Giving you some 40-50% performance boost. Also depending on how fast mainstream tech advances, you could use some parts for very long time. Like RAM. DDR5 is not even touched desktop range yet.

 

Overall it's really hard to futureproof things.

so thinking back that intel strategy may be correct lol

mobo futureproofing isnt quitr a concern to most mid high end users
