I currently have an AMD R5 1600 (AE model, not the newer Zen+ AF model) running on a MSI B450 motherboard. My GPU has just been upgraded to a GTX 1660 Super, which has quartered the rendering time of my old GPU (GTX 1050ti).
I’m debating whether to upgrade the CPU. My initial thoughts were to go for a R7 3700x, but I’m now wondering if it is going to make much of an improvement over my R5 1600, or whether I should just go for the 2700x. I only need it for modeling because I use the GPU for rendering, and I don’t think even the 3700x will match the GTX 1660 super for rendering.
Any thoughts, anyone?
