Hey everyone.
wanted to ask is it even possible to replace Intel Pentium G4620 @ 3.70GHz to AMD Ryzen 5 1500x.
If not, could u please suggest which motherboard this pc needs to fit AMD ryzen 5 1500x.

Operating System
Windows 10 Home 64-bit
CPU
Intel Pentium G4620 @ 3.70GHz 33 °C
Coffee Lake 14nm Technology
RAM
8,00GB
Motherboard
Micro-Star International Co. Ltd. B360M PRO-VD (MS-7B53) (U3E1)
Graphics
SMB2270HD (1920x1080@60Hz)
8192MB ATI Radeon RX 570 Series

Thanks.:)
 
You'll likely also need a new Windows license. If your current license is OEM not Retail. Sometimes registering it to a Microsoft account works for a motherboard swap.

You will most definitely need a new motherboard to use that CPU. Given that the 1500x isn't particularly impressive. You may just want to upgrade your current CPU to another compatible CPU.

If you already have the Ryzen 1500x. Sell it. Also sell the G4620. Take all that money plus what you would end up spending on a new motherboard and Windows license. Use that money to buy a Core i5 8400, 8500, 8600, 9400F, 9400, 9500 or 9600. It's a much easier path to take, will give you a faster computer and should have about the same net cost.

AMD cpu uses way different socket than G4620
you cannot just replace with one another.

if you want lightweight change, pick 9400 or 9600.

if you want more gain, but also way more investment, buy MOBO with AM4 socket and at least 2600 ryzen

The Pentium G4620 is a Kabylake CPU and uses Intel 100 or 200 series chipsets. The i5 8xxx and 9xxx CPU use 300 series and are incompatible with the 100/200 series chipset motherboards. You need to look at upgrading to an i5 6xxx or 7xxx.
