EfT runs on Unity. Unity only utilizes one core, with maybe some other threads coded to handle minor tasks. These two chips will perform near identical in escape from tarkov.
If that is the game you will mostly be playing a 10700k would be a waste of money, IMO

Benchmarks indicate the i5-10600K is a solid enough value if you don't want to go Ryzen. Gamers Nexus tested the i5-10600K with overclocked cache and RAM and it beat the i9-10900K with their standard test bench. Overclocking the processor and cache each net a few percentage points of additional performance. The 4000 MHz RAM they used added up to almost 20% performance compared to their baseline results. The RAM they used wasn't cheap, though, so I wouldn't recommend pairing the i5-10600K with such a premium kit. At that point, it makes more sense to get the better processor.

Yes the 10700k looks like it's not worth. I play EFT but also a lot of games that could benefit from the added perf but looking at differences between the 600k and 700k in RDR2 or GTAV there's no real value in the 700k.

I saw the comparison of the 10700k today and yes the 600k is a clear winner for gaming. I've got 3000Mhz CL14 RAM, I guess that won't be a real bottleneck and I'll be happy to upgrade later.

Rockstar isn't exactly known for making good multi threaded well performing game engines, you can look up the horror they did with GTAV and RDR2 on PC. It's a similar story with Bethesda's outdated game engine.

The 6C/12T has been a sweet spot for just gaming for quite a while now since Zen is on market. The cost of extra cores is high and 8 or more cores is not beneficial to most games at this time.

Plenty comparisons each day showing up:



I would still rather get an AMD platform though.

The issue with Rockstar is their game engine doesn't like high frame rates, so you either have to force a GPU bottleneck or limit FPS.

I didn't look closely at the AMD lineup. I understand the 3600 is the best value on the market for gaming but if I want better performances the 10600k looks like the best buy. Which AMD would give as much fps for a better price?

People need to understand, If you are even (70% of the time) gaming then Intel all the way.

my answer: go with the 10600K, you want intel, you've made that more than obvious. It's the only chip of the two that's even worth it value wise and for gaming it's nearly perfect....

My opinion though, you should really consider an AMD build... performance per watt and performance per dollar are both better and sure you'll have to use process lasso on that one game, but are you really so stubborn that you'd be willing to pay more just to save a few clicks?

as for the if you game 70% comment above... my son went with amd due to budget constraints and is running a 2700x on his rig with a 1440p 144hz freesync monitor and is doing quite well... he tossed the money he saved into a better gpu.

True, but @ High FPS 165+ or even 240 that 2700x will struggle and if you monitor those 1% low you will understand why a lot of people are still preferring Intel for gaming.
