Greetings.

So I upgraded my system about a week ago and picked up a x470 prime pro with Ryzen 7 2700 and have looked into the specs of these Ryzen 3000s.
Would it be a recommendation to send back the 2700 and pickup the 3700x for the extra £70 or so?

My use is of gaming/streaming. Not that we know the benchmarks yet and won't until a short while after the release of the cpus but I have until the 8th July to send the 2700 back.

I currently have a GTX 1060 3gb which I'm aiming to replace with a 2070.

So I either stick with the 2700 and add the funds towards the gpu or send the cpu back and pickup the newer version when it's out.

Cheers folks.

The 3700x should be a decent improvement. Make sure your BIOS is up to date. Otherwise it won't be able to BOOT with the new CPU. It can only be updated with a compatible CPU. The board or box may list the BIOS revision somewhere.

I guess that even if you add 70$ on your GPU you can't really do a step further than the 2070 now. You can also keep this cpu and than go with the 2070 super. Or just take the new ryzen (wich in my opinion is a really good cpu for the price!). But in this case be you want to update the bios to the new version before installing the new cpu.
