just a quick question...say i jump to the new zen2 platform
How much do you think i would be able to sell my?
asus z170 gaming pro (1301 bios for OC'ing non-k cpu)
i5 6500 with a dead core, but cores 0,1,and 2 are synced with stable OC up to 4.3 @ 1.3v(can push higher but whats the point))
16gb 2x8 2400mhz (oc to 2600ish from the blck OC)
Or i might just give it away to friend. If you guys think this can out preform a fx 6100 on some crap mobo with 12gb ram.

With the PS5/XB2 coming soon, 7700k is soon running retro-gaming rig status, Anyone who isn't interested in the 3900x as their next gaming CPU doesn't understand what they're looking at. Running next-gen console ports and budgeting for a build is going to center around 8-core vs. 12-core [...the 16-core is more of a "money no object" thing]. A contest between getting 8 vs 12 cores is basically a redux of the E8400 vs Q6600, faster IPC vs 50% more cores question. The Q6600 won that long term even w/o overclocking and the difference in single core performance was significantly larger.
When do the 12-core gaming laptops come out? [...don't I wish.]

|BroadPwns||Yup, a database of three games that is completely useless. Though you can see clearly why you should not even consider 7700k by looking at the Far Cry 5 chart.|

Something to think about:
|06-24-2019 06:18 PM|
700$ price Mark comes from 3700x + x570 mobo + better kit of ram to get the most out of the cpu.
600 to 700 for switching platforms.
Which will mostly only affect the 1% lows at 1440p 144hz even on the newer platform.
I just don't the price to performance being there. Even with i7 7700k being overpriced atm. If I already had the platform to run the 3700x it would be a no brainer.
Am I miss something here?

You're way better off with a Ryzen 5 3600 , Ryzen 7 2700X , or Ryzen 7 3700X IMO.
I bought into the Ryzen ecosystem when deciding between the i7-7700k and Ryzen 1st gen (around AGESA 188.8.131.52) and it's been the best decision.

you mean this one?
yes the i7 7700k has no path past that. which is fine. still and upgrade from what i currently have.
i'm not using the system for productivity only gaming and its at 1440p. which is still sold with the i7.
the ryzen 1800x is better with its 1% lows, but spending 700$(450$ difference) to have maybe up to 14% better 1% lows seem like a not so good idea.
You can still find it on Amazon.com for $216.95.
Yes, that was the comparison and think how good you'll have it with a Zen 2 which is 3rd/present gen!

where are you getting your $700 number from? and why is your option 7700K or 1800X?
7nm Ryzen launch on the 7th, the 1800 is basically 3 generations old at this point.
