I’d recommend waiting, specifically because Zen 3 will be the last processor on the AM4 socket, so you’d get the best bang for your buck out of it as well. At the moment, if the 4000 series mobile chips are any proof, its going to be a big performance boost, greater than the ~10% we saw between Zen and Zen+.
Should I get a Zen 2 or wait for Zen 3?
A Zen 2 build should carry you another 5 years just fine and are available now. If you can afford to wait a bit longer or perhaps a lot longer if their are shortages/delays, then by all means, wait for Zen 3.
Is Zen 4 worth the wait?
The Zen 4 chips might just be worth holding out for if you can wait another year to upgrade, with a report from Chipsandcheese (via Wccftech) claiming some pretty impressive gains over the previous generation. These include IPC gains of 25%, and total performance improvements of 40%.
How much faster will Zen 3 be?
Zen 3 is a significant incremental improvement over its predecessors, with an IPC increase of 19%, and being capable of reaching higher clock speeds.
Is zen3 better than Zen 2?
Zen 3 vs. Zen 2 improvements. … Zen 2 set the overall bar high; Zen 3 gives it a healthy, but not incredible, bump upwards. With that out of the way, the aim of Zen 3, according to AMD, is to lift both instructions per clock (IPC) and frequency over Zen 2…
How much better will Zen 3 be?
Based on AMD’s math, its Zen 3 Ryzen CPUs are also 2.4 times more efficient from a performance-per-watt perspective than its first-gen Ryzen CPUs, and approximately 24 percent more efficient than its second-gen Ryzens.
Is Zen 2 GOOD?
Beyond core counts, Zen 2 allows for better performance overall. Not only do clock speeds see an improvement – up to 4.6GHz on the Ryzen 9 3900X and up to 5GHz on the Ryzen 9 3950X out of the box – but also a massive boost to IPC (instructions per clock) performance.
Should I wait for am5?
You would expect am5 to stick around for a few years, while am4 is already on its last leg. It makes perfect sense to wait for am5 to give yourself a better upgrade path. and you don’t know the performance gains of the future amd cpus. the 5000 series cpus were unexpected good.
Should I wait for new Ryzen?
Ryzen is great for multithreaded applications and for gaming at 1440p/4k where the CPU matters less. Intel holds a good advantage still in 1080p gaming where your current CPU will outperform even a 3900x. If you want any improvements then look at a 10700k or wait for new stuff.
Should I wait for Ryzen zen3?
You can honestly go with an x570 and a 1st or 2nd gen Ryzen for cheap and then jump on the Zen 3 train when it comes out. If I were in your position I would wait it out since it’s probably not that far off (I think around October), but maybe you need the upgrade now for the games you want to play.
Will Zen 3 have a new chipset?
Very little is known about a new chipset for AMD’s Zen 3 CPUs, but we already know that current X570 and B550 motherboards will support Zen 3 CPUs. PCIe 4.0 is also supported by them as well so rumors that AMD will not launch a new chipset this time have been circulating in the last few days.
When can I buy Zen 3?
The Zen 3 and new Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processors were officially launched at AMD’s online event on 8 October 2020. All the new desktop chips in the Ryzen 5000 series then went on sale from 5 November. You can buy them now from the AMD website in the UK and US, as well as a host of third-party retailers.

Is Zen 3 faster than Intel?
Conclusion. After a lot of testing even I can confirm what other reviewers have reported during the Zen 3 launch: AMD has beaten Intel in gaming performance, but only in a best-case scenario, using fast memory and with the latest graphics architecture.
Is Zen 3 better than i9?
Tom’s hardware has the 5950X beating Intel’s Core i9-10900K comfortably in an average of eight games at 1080p and 1440p. Some other games are closer, but AMD’s latest Zen 3 chips beat Intel’s equivalents for single-threaded performance too.
Will Zen 2 prices drop?
Yes, Zen 1 dropped when 2 came out, 2 dropped when 3, etc. However, because how good the 3000 series is, it might drop a quarter less than previous price drops, unless AMD is going full steamroll, which I hope they do, we need even MORE competition.
