I am looking to make the switch from Intel to AMD and and with quality CPU's and GPU's being a bit hard to come by I am thinking of just upgrading my mobo and buying a ryzen 5 3600 until I see performance issues or newer CPU's become more available. My main issue is that I want to be as future proof as possible. I know that AMD will probably be moving away from their current AM4 socket sometime in the near future so that has me worried but at the same time there are plenty of current options to upgrade from the 3600. Right now I am looking at the X570 Chipset. Assuming that AMD uses the AM4 socket for at least the next couple generations will this chipset give me the best possibility of compatibility a few years down the road?

Thanks,
 
it's uncertain that AM4 will see any other CPUs. maybe the next one, will probably depend on when DDR5 is commercially ready. We could see AMD moving to AM5/AM4+ next Christmas, we could see another CPU line on AM4. "Next couple generations" is definitely not gonna happen though.

as for compatibility, most users don't need a x570 over a b550, unless you're planning on using multiple NVMe SSDs.

Thanks. That makes sense. I was looking at an x570 board but I think a b550 will be more than enough for what I am looking to do with it.
