Suggested updgrade for PowerSpec G700

First Anniversary First Comment
edited March 2022 in PowerSpec

I have a PowerSpec G700 that works very well. However, if I want to update to Windows 11 it is not 'supported' as it is a first gen Ryzen CPU (1700). All other specs meet the upgrade requirements. As the system is currently, no basic issues running Davinci Resolve or streaming software, just the Microsoft requirement.

What would be a suggested pathway to an upgraded CPU without breaking the bank?


G700 Specs:

Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 1700 processor

OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

System Board: ASUS PRIME B350-PLUS System Board

Memory: 16GB composed of 2- 8192MB DDR4/2133 DIMMS

HD: 480GB SATA Solid State Drive

Video: NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1070 PCI Express

LAN: Wireless B/G/N/AC

LAN: Realtek Integrated Gigabit Ethernet RTL8111
