    Re: i5 3570K to i5 8600K worth it?

    I went from 2500k (4.1ghz) to 6600k (4.5ghz) and I would say it was *barely* worth it.

    Yours is a different situation of course, especially with the additional 2 cores, but my advice would be either to go for HT (8700k) @ 4.7+ GHz or wait for Ryzen 2 (or even Ryzen +) as we're starting to see games using 6, or even 8 cores these days. It's a good sign.

    If you can get a good deal by all means don't let me put you off but I have Ryzen 7 1700 @ 4ghz now and I think I would prefer that long term (counting the platform) to 8600k @ 4.6 or whatever.

    thanks for the input guys, the more i read the more I see that It wont make that much difference in gaming as i run a 1070 @ 1080p / 4k downsampled with g-sync so wont notice much real world gain.

    I may do it just to do it

    I did a review of a GTX1080 with an IB Core i7 here:

    https://forums.hexus.net/reader-revi...enchmarks.html

    The CPU only runs at between 3.5GHZ~3.7GHZ and if you have GSync that should help.

    I'm in the same situation with a 3570k @ 4.4ghz paired with a 1060 6gb, however with the cost of ram at the moment, I just can't justify the outlay, especially as Intel seem to be releasing new platforms every 5 minutes. On the flipside at 1080p it seems as though something like the ryzen 1600/2600 wouldn't be a huge improvement simply for gaming and general every-day tasks.

    Dandy I know this feel. I think you do kinda already have a strong basis. I would just add that For Me a change from 6600k about 4.4 to r7 1700 about 3.96 was a subjectively large upgrade. You may need to budget about 175 for decent ddr4 4 Ryzen tho

    Yeah, I think i'll just stick with what I've got until the end of the year, possibly see if the ram market changes at all. You can bet we'll all be picking up 32gbs of ddr4 if the pricing ever gets back to what it was though.
