    So I've had this build for a little over 3 years now I think. My main use is for gaming, coding and (mostly) VR and it has been working great for the most part.

    However, I'm starting to notice that my CPU is a bottleneck in some VR games which causes heavy slowdowns. Ex. Some sections in Boneworks run at 40fps.

    Checking the graphs inside SteamVR I can see my CPU is just not cutting it somehow. I need to upgrade ASAP because this is giving me some serious motion sickness in VR.

    Is the Ryzen 5 3600x a good upgrade for my current i7 7700?

    Well, based on what I'm reading on these two links:

    https://www.amd.com/en/products/cpu/amd-ryzen-5-3600x

    https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us...-4-20-ghz.html

    Yes, the Ryzen looks like it's a better CPU. More cores, more threads and base/boost clock speeds higher.

    Now, all this is based from what I'm reading. I have no experiences with either CPU.

    The R 5 should be a good upgrade from the i7. The only thing I am not sure is how well it can do VR. Everything else is going to be fine.
