Keep my Ryzen 9 3900x or wait for Ryzen 4000s series

I think the 3900X is going to be absolutely fine

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I just got the Ryzen 9 3900x* and was wondering if I should return it - which I only have 4 days left for - and wait the 1-2 months for Ryzen 4000s series or keep my stuff.

 

Some info on what I currently need the CPU for in amount ratio 5:2:
- gaming (everything from Civilization 6 to Battlefield 5 with RTX)

- productive work in Unreal Engine, Blender and Adobe After Effects

 

Current "CPU setup":

- Ryzen 9 3900x

- ASUS ROG STRIX X570-F Gaming

- G.Skill Ripjaws V 3200

- be quiet! System Power B9 600W (I will be changing it soon due to the missing 4-Pin power thingy for the motherboard (it needs an 8-Pin and a 4-Pin on the EATX12V))

 

Backup "CPU setup":

- i7 8700

- MSI H310M Pro-D

 

Also, I'm not even sure if it will be worth getting the 4000s series, and if keeping my current stuff and waiting for 5000s series would be better.

 

 

*I used it for one day in a round of Overwatch, some osu! and maybe an hour or two in GTAV

keep the 3900x


Judge the product by it's own merits, not by the Company that created it.

If you already used it I don't think you'd be able to return it, and frankly if you did it's a massively dick move.

5000 series wouldn't really be worth it either, you're probably best off waiting for 6000.

It's not going to be a one or two month wait. More like 4 to 6 month to actually see it on store shelves. 

 

With that said, I'd wait. (I actually am waiting)
