I am looking to update my system. Currently has the Ryzen 2700X on the X470 chassis. Is the Ryzen 9 3900x a viable upgrade or has it swung the other way with the newer Intel 9's?


Thanks

Viable, sure. Worth the $500 price tag? That's the better question. For gaming I'd say definitely not, production and cpu intensive workloads, possibly.

Unless you just having money burning a hole in your pocket or the 2700x is no longer doing what you need it to, I wouldn't spend that kind of cash.
