New AMD CPUs are on the horizon and many people want to check the compatibility of their CPUs. My question is that I want to know will this CPU compatible with this upcoming 7000 series GPUs: 

WWW.GETITEQUIP.COM

Visit www.altechdevices.com to purchase YD3400C5FHBOX - AMD Ryzen 5 3400G with Radeon RX Vega 11 Graphics Quad-Core 3.7GHz Socket AM4 in top condition with free ground shipping.

Please check and let me know cause I want to hold on this processor for few years more.

Hi and welcome to the forums. I am not sure what you are asking here. The next AMD CPUs will be socket AM5 and none of the current processors will be compatible. If you are asking if a 3400G would bottleneck next gen AMD or NVIDIA GPUs, the answer is yes.

Welcome to EHW!

 

If you are wanting to stay on the AM4 platform and not have bottleneck issues with the next gen GPU's for AMD/Nvidia then I would certainly consider nothing less than an AMD 5000 series CPU. 5600X is good bang for its buck.

I'll be the odd man out here and say it depends on which GPU.  If you're talking about a low or low-midrange RX 7000 series GPU, then yes your 3400G will likely hold up just fine.  If you're talking about an actual midrange "7600" series or higher GPU, then no the 3400G probably will not work too well for you as it'll hold back the GPU.

 

I'd say that CPU would likely be just fine with something along the lines of an RX 6500 or 6600XT, which those are available now.  Maybe an RX 6700XT even might play without too much bottleneck.  Anything faster, no you'll want a better CPU than the 3400g.

Isn't a 3400G still PCI-e 3.0?

Correct.

 

To answer the OP's initial question of compatibility...sure its technically compatible, but you will be bottlenecking new 7000-series GPUs for sure and at least losing some performance by being only PCI-E 3.0. I'd seriously look at just upgrading to a 5600/5600X for cheap if your motherboard supports 5000-series Zen 3 chips and PCI-E 4.0.
