Meybe figure out what hardware everyone is talking about next time. Iirc you're the one that brought up the 8350...which is still relevant because games finally did take a turn towards multithreading but still not great if you plan on using a faster GPU for higher frame rates.
Whatever bud, evidence is evidence. Don't be bitter if its provided.
OP as stated, please do your research. Yes, your going to see performance gains. No they are not going to be eye poppingly enormous unless its specifically games that rely on and are limited by your CPU. Do your research in the titles you specifically play. Good luck OP, i'm out again.
Evidence of what? We already knew about the 8350 still being pretty good for current games. I literally just had 4c/4t at 4.7ghz...it was horrible in modern games. 60fps is possible but not 60fps minimums and trying for 120-144fps is so much worse.
Look at any GN chart of CPU performance and see where a 4690k ends up, let alone a 2500 lol
I'm of the same mind that if it's doing what you want on games you play that makes it good en ough. But a newer CPU with more threads will be noticeable everywhere. I noticed my little Devil's Canyon upgrade in all aspects of my PC, especially games but also in Firefox. Upgrading to something much newer would be even better. If you had a 2600k it would be a little different but that's not the case.
