Upgrade path from Xeon 1230V3 to Ryzen 2700x

Hi guys,

I currently have the following system:

Intel Xeon 1230 v3 at running at stock speed 3.3 Ghz

Asrock B85 Pro4

Nvidia PNY GTX 1080ti

16.0 GB DDR3 running at 1600 MHz

Cryorig H5 Ultimate cooler

LG 27UK650 4K monitor

Samsung 850 EVO 256 GB boot drive

650 W power supply

I use the system mainly for two things: editing photos as I am a working professional photographer and playing games at 4K.

For the editing part, the system runs OK but it's obviously not blazing fast. When I have large batches of photographs to process as I often do, CPU usage hits 100% and it does struggle a bit. How much faster would Ryzen 2700x be in this specific scenario?

When it comes to gaming I noticed that even though the GTX 1080ti should be enough to run games at 4K 60 fps with high details, sometimes I only hit 50 fps on average and the game play isn't the smoothest.

Would an upgrade to the Ryzen 2700X noticeably improve my FPS in games? Remember that I only want to achieve smooth 4K 60 fps frame rate.

Would it be better to wait until 2019 and the coming Ryzen 3 CPUs?

 

Thanks in advance!

My advice here is as always, If you can hold on wit your system right now then please do as in the next 6 months we are going to see some more major products released. If that is not the case then then realise you will most likely see quite an impressive uplift in performance.

Ben, thanks for replying!

 

I can wait, I'm in no major hurry. By major products being released, do you refer to the the upcoming Ryzen 3 ?

Its not the exact but it will give you a idea check youtube vids like xeon vs 2700x game fps 

performance boost will be there  as you running xeon on 1600 mhz ram

Ryzen 2700x will run with ddr4 3200 mhz ram

Which is faster and 2700x is a great cpu for gaming  

Quad vs octa lol

I'd say go ahead with the upgrade. Get a quality X470 motherboard with that 2700X and you'll have a great experience. The next generation of Ryzen is likely to be around 8-10 months from now, so I wouldn't keep on struggling like this for that long. Time = money after all.

No worries, The other option is to upgrade now and consider getting the new Ryzen3 if it offers enough of an uplift.

In fact, I would wait until January as AMD is showing off Ryzen 3rd gen at CES 2019.

Hmmm, the thing is my system is not bottlenecked per se, but my Xeon starts to show it's age. I was interested in finding out how many FPs can I gain by getting a newer CPU and keeping my GTX1080ti?

Great news! I will wait until January to see what the Ryzen 3 will offer compared to Ryzen 2.
