As things looks now, AM5 is approx 18 months away so AM4 is still alive and kickin'. I upgraded because l had a great deal. If l hadn't, upgrade would wait AM5.When the right time is come I will upgrade from my CH6E to a X570 am4 socket board, or even I can wait for AM5 socket when is release , my current set up still deliver a very good performance ,I'm not complain with AMD what so ever , almost 5 years and we still enjoy our AM4 sockets
I got your point.so why old Intel chipset board will get Resize Bar and x370 are not? (for example)
it's not even about money and performance, but AMD BROKEN PROMISES, i prefer to have some worse but predictable Intel than strange surprises from AMD. With Intel i can buy PC and just use it, no headache with agesa , memory and so on, and then, after 5 years i'll just buy another mobo+CPU with no worries, i lost my enthusiasm with AMD
But, when you say you will have no worries with lntel. True, because intel is recycling same **** over one decade and it would be a very big shame that some experienced things like this.
Ryzen and 300 boards were build from SCRATCH with rushed out boards and BIOSes. But all later boards were 99% OK.
You know that Intel first "new" thing in a decade is Rocket Lake? And people have problems with buggy BIOS and things almost the same as zen+300 had.
Personally, l have never experienced problems with C6H. Ok, l had B-die RAM from begining and did not use water cooling. Everything else was A-OK.
Regarding ReBAR, to me that is completely useless feature nor do l have GPU that support it (RTX 2080Ti). When/if ReBAR will be gamechanging feature with next gen GPUs, 300 chipset boards will be even more obsolete by then.
As said, l understand your frustration with AMDs broken promises, l am not at peace also and certainly not advocating them. Just want to say that you will not be more happier with lntel, especially with some new stuff which will be also rushed since lntel is an underdog now.
We are in need of 3rd strong CPU manufacturer
