Quote:I was merely pointing out that upgrade options do exist, however unrealistic it is that a budget user will upgrade on a regular basis. Given Ryzen's per core performance, a thread upgrade is the only relevant thing in the next 5years for a Kaby Lake platform. It's not like Intel was making performance breakthroughs each generation.
Case in point consider that current ryzen mainboards are dual memory channel, intel's 6cores platform is quad channel, Skylake-E is hexa-channel. Like said not that i think upgradeabilty is a thing, but there is a bottleneck in current AM4 boards which will not age gracefully, socket compatibility or not.
