ASRock AB350 Pro4 with Ryzen 5 3600?

Right now I am running the ASRock AB350 Pro4 with a Ryzen 3 2200g. I cannot complain at this point, it has done me well for the price point. With that being said, I am running into limitations with that CPU even though I am only running an RX 480 with it.

I see that my motherboard is getting a BIOS update for the new Ryzen CPU's. So i guess I'm looking for opinions, Am I better off buying a current gen CPU at a reduced price point? Or am I better off swinging the extra $$ to the next generation? I don't see myself being an early adopter, only becuase I see there being a shortage for a while because of hype. Hopefully someone can give me some good insight on which direction I should go. Thanks!

Your board is fairly decent and should perform quite well with an R5 3600. Especially with that CPU being only 6 cores and looking to be not nearly as power hungry as an OC'd 1700 can be.

We also won't know for sure which new motherboards perform well until after a bit of time. Whereas the CPU will perform best right away at launch.

I say go for it, put the cash you save by keeping the mobo into the newer better CPU.

Also, hello from a fellow Wisconsin member.

I'm actually surprised with the quality of my board. I understand if it wont be the best overclocker, but I think the increase they're claiming on the cpu is going to make it worth the extra money. Thanks for your input. As a fellow Wisconsinite How are you enjoying our brutal heat wave? I"m not built for this haha

So how did the ryzen 5 3600 work out with your asrock ab350 pro 4. Also looking to get the r5 3600 or r5 2600 and see which is more stable for the Asrock ab350 pro4. Thanks

sorry for the super late reply. I just saw this now. I did not end up going with the 3600. Early on it sounded like there were a bunch of issues. I came across a great deal on a 1700x and I grabbed that.
