Is now a good time to upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys (and gals),

I was wondering the other day if now is a good time to upgrade my old editing rig. Like, building a new computer. My rig is getting quite old (I'm still rocking an i7 3770k and a GTX 1070) but editing on it is still fine to the most part (at least when working with ProRes footage and/or Proxys). Still, I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of potential workflow and rendering speeds.

 

So on to my question. Is now a good time to upgrade my machine to an i9 10900k based machine or rather is there any upcoming big hardware change or breakthrough that is worth waiting for a couple more months?

 

Maybe you guys can give advice on that topic. Thanks in advance.

I mean Zen 3 and RDNA2 is coming this October so it's worth waiting considering that your system should still do well in games, especially with an overclock on the i7

Do people expect a considerable advantage over the new RTX 30xx Series cards with RDNA2? Also gaming really isnt the main priority for me. Also I will probably stay with Intel for compatibility (still running a dual booted hackintosh machine lol).

We don't know yet but chances are AMD will offer better value just like they did with rx 5700XT which is priced like a 2060 super but performs like a 2070.
