Is Ryzen 3 worth the wait?

*Chazz
 Share

So I am not a heavy gamer by any stretch. I am planning on building a rig currently with a Ryzen 2600 in it ( I actually already have it, its sitting in its box in my room). I am aiming for light gaming, with a bit of future proofing, along with being able to edit some 1080p video, and to engineering work loads such as solid works. Currently I have a gtx1050 which fits my needs perfectly.

 

I have questioned whether it was worth getting the 2600 though, as Ryzen 3 is coming out May of next year? It's apparently going to be pretty good. I have considered getting a 2200 (or 1200, 2400g is not worth it when 2600 is same price) , and using that to hold me over. The big picture though suggests otherwise however. For my work load the only thing that really justifies 12 threads is video editing. A 4 core would likely keep me quiet happy with gaming, engineering work, and maybe even my level of video editing. But I certainly don't want move to another rock to live under. (I have been using a lap top i-3337u). So what do you guys think?

 

1.Save $60 for now, flip the processor later if I am itching for more performance and a better release is available?

 

or

 

I have found the best processor for me at this time to keep me happy for the coming years. I have done enough research just chill and enjoy it.

 

Thanks guys.

Get a high quality X470 motherboard that has some good features like high speed USB and such, and use the 2600. When you need more cores, maybe you'll have saved up and there will be more Ryzen for you to choose from.

If only

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

There's always something better around the corner. With that mentality you'll be waiting forever.
On top of that all we have are rumors, nothing solid. So. I wouldn't wait, I'd just use what you have. It's not like you'll be saving thousands of dollars here, we're talking about at most a couple of hundred.

Just seeing if there are any serious points I haven't considered is all. Its easy to make an uniformed decision.
