    ryzen cpu selection for windows 7

    I need a new system for heavier work. currently on 8320 fx and it does what I need.

    so I understand that ryzen 7 g2 will work with win7 with a bit of tweaking. but how about b450/550 and ryzen 7 G3?

    where is the limit where things get really difficult and also many programs wont run well?

    If I were you I would find a motherboard that meets my needs and then look at the manufactures website to see if they have downloads for Windows 7 64-bit drivers. I looked at a few motherboards with B450 and B550 chipsets. The B450 ones had Windows 7 drivers while the B550 ones didn't. I only did a cursory search so don't know if that is true for all similar motherboards.

    In 2017 I build a 1st generation Ryzen computer with an ASUS Prime X370-Pro motherboard with an AMD Ryzen 7 1700X CPU. Currently the computer has a 2nd generation AMD Ryzen 7 3700X CPU. I would have to get a new motherboard if I wanted to use a 3rd generation Ryzen 5000 series CPU.

    BTW, I still have a computer with an AMD FX8350 CPU. It's still running OK and even better after I replaced the 3.5-inch SATA boot hard drive with a 2.5-inch SATA SSD.

    ASRock x570 / b550 motherboard BIOS does not support win7 ACPI, need to use the modified acpi.sys. It is recommended that users who use x570 / b550 motherboard to install win7 buy ASUS, Gigabyte or MSI motherboard.

    I can sure that ASUS Gigabyte MSI X570/B550 can work on win7 and donít need mod acpi.sys,because I had tested them before. I recommend buy a mainboard without WiFi card, also can buy the mainboard replace the WiFi card easily one. My Gigabytes X570 and B550 platforms all replace the WiFi card with 8260/8265AC,RTL8822CE,Killer 1535 which can work on win7...You can buy a 8265AC to replace the AX200,it about $5. Also you can turn it off in the BIOS.
