Hey guys, I was reaching out to get you input on a hypothetical (currently). I have a buddy who is running a second gen Ryzen processor on an x470 with a 1070ti. With the release of the new lower end chips in the 5000 series and it being the end of life for the AM4 socket he is wondering if doing a CPU swap will get him 2+ years more of decent gaming at 1440p. Assuming his motherboard has the bios to support such a thing do you think the 1070ti would bottle neck an R5 5600? Or do you think it would be wise to look into a cpu and GPU? For the most part he still has no issues in most games. Thanks for your input!

Found out he is actually on a b350… Thankfully it’s a pretty well supported Asus model so maybe the next bios update will have 5000 support?
