Pretty sick revelation I just had about when to Upgrade your CPU.

 Share

Alright so u guys never did shit to help me in my original post on here. So I worked to solve it myself, and I did.

 

Turns out if you bought every new Ryzen 5 1600 refresh from start until 2020 when the socket will change. You will end up paying only $310 dollars compared to $330 if you just bought gen 1 1600 and then the 5600 (skip 4 because china fyi)

This is of course only true if you sell each old chip at 110 bucks on ebay right after the new refresh happens. Or honestly you could sell it right before the refresh and just make sure your handling time is 3 ish days. 

 

 

 

Point is even if you bought the new chip every year you'd wouldn't be losing any money you'd be saving it. Hope this helps those willing to do the work. If you want to see my work I can DM ya but its pretty bad chicken scratch so I'm not posting it here. Just ask

You expect me to reply then you'd best QUOTE me so I can........thanks

Or, you could go with the option of only upgrading when the performance isn't satisfactory to your needs, which for the last number of generations (depending on which team you're using) has only been incremental improvements at best.

exactly why haswell is still being used. Unless people have money to throw around and they want to, theres no need to upgrade.

 I don't know about incremental we gained 300mhz with Ryzen 2. I could put that extra clock speed to good use for sure.To u it may seem not worth it but I'm pretty cool with saving 20-30 bucks while also getting better performance let it be minor or not EVERY year instead of suffering with a 3-4 yr old cpu with massive bandwidth games coming out by then. 

 

Idk for me its worth it.
