Ryzen - 1st vs 2nd generation

Hi P
 Share

Go to solution Solved by bleedblue,

1. Not much to miss out on. Can achieve somewhat higher clock speeds, marginally higher IPC, storeMI on b450 boards, and an RGB cooler.

 

2. Yes.

1.- What's the big feature (that I may be missing) of the second generation of Ryzen over the first generation?

 

 

Second question:

- I plan on getting a 2k monitor with 60 Hz

- Not overclocking CPU

 

2.- Would I be fine with a First generation Ryzen 1600 / 1700? (at first I thought I needed a 2700x but I was wrong)

 

Thank you very much

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

You forgot memory compatibility, which is significantly better on 2nd gen.
