All my life I have bought all my gaming PCs with Intel CPUs.
I always face a major issue, though: 2 to 3 years after buying a new PC, when I try to replace my 2 to 3 years old GPU with a brand new latest 2x to 3x more powerful GPU to match my gaming needs, my Intel CPU always becomes the bottleneck. I can’t even just upgrade the CPU to latest generation to match the GPU because the motherboard won’t allow it. As a result, just to use a new GPU, I have to buy a completely new PC!
Are AMD motherboards better future-proofed so that after 3 to 4 years I could upgrade my CPU to match new GPU speed without buying a whole PC? Or is Intel also more future proof in recent products they release?
I’m buying a new PC again, so this time I’m trying to decide: Should I go AMD or Intel; which will be better future proofed?
If history repeats itself, then only AMD motherboards can support the next few generations of CPU and Intel will not; right? Will an AMD socket AM5 motherboard support Zen 5 and Zen 6 CPUs too?
Will Intel launch any socket which will support a few more future generations?
