Pass. I didn't buy a Ryzen 3 so why would I buy a downgrade?

You didnt read the article at all to say something like that:

AMD’s next generation Ryzen 2 CPUs are set to debut on 12nm process technology in the first quarter of 2018. The new lineup comprised of 2000 series Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 2000 microprocessors is said to bring higher clock speeds and better overclockability to the table in addition to support for faster DDR4 RAM.
Pc: i7 6700k/980 ti/16gb ram and Ps4.

Any word on a core count increase or is it just higher clock speeds? Kinda hoping the Ryzen 3 2200 and 2300x will have 6 cores.

TweakTown is claiming the 2800X (successor to the 1800X) will be 12c/24t hitting 5.1GHz out of the box.

If the "new" version of the 1800x is pushing 5.1 GHz out of the box (as TweakTown claims), that's already pretty goddamn impressive for even an 8c/16t CPU - provided it's not pushing 100C out of the box, at least - much less as 12c/24t.

It'll certainly bear consideration if it pans out.

Probably about as believable as wccftech, but hey.

Doubtful. Pinnacle Ridge will have "up to 8 Zencores", so basically the same amount it was. So the reuction of cores from tier to tier should remain the same.

My question is simple: will it at least bring it in line with my i7 4790k?

My nephew definitely needs a new CPU. He's on a Core2 Quad. The problem is this machine has the i7 4790k and my sister's has the i5 4670k. As far as I understand it, neither of those machines will need CPU upgrades for years. As much as I like my family I'm not dropping hundreds alone on his machine though, but handing down parts for both myself and my sister seems like a nice thing to do for him.

As it stands now (especially with sky high RAM prices and storage prices slightly more expensive than a few years ago for the same size) I can't justify a CPU upgrade. I was very close to just getting the i7 8700k even though I don't need it, but the fact it's selling for higher than the MSRP stopped that insanity.

I'm hoping the Ryzen refresh will be better than the i7 4790k, or at least so close the difference is negligible. As I understand it even the i5 4670k can do better single core performance then the best current Ryzen chips. That's not to say Ryzen is bad; I just can't justify a slight downgrade of a side grade for either machine.

To truly upgrade my machine would take a couple months worth of pay, and while I could kind of afford it that's a lot of money to blow on equipment that will be outdated in a couple years.

2TB M.2 NVMe SSD with 32GB RAM with the i7 8700k and GTX 1080 would be the kind of upgrade that would be of any consequence to me, and I don't game in 4k anyway and the 4k TV is in the other room. My plan was 4k by 2020 or so, but considering how many amazing classic games are being ported to the PC and how my current machine runs newer games great at 1080p I'm having a real hard time justifying an upgrade.

I'm hoping the Ryzen refresh is a solution. I think if it's still inferior to our current CPUs I'll just get a mid range CPU for my nephew. He insists he doesn't need it, but he's always on my sister's machine...

Now if only their GPU's were good then the new 1180 TI GPU wouldn't cost $1000.
