    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.
