Thinking about to upgrade my 2600k because of the game squad still in alpha; currently my CPU is the bottleneck

Currently my setup is:

https://de.pcpartpicker.com/user/dalex00/saved/D8L4D3

Thinking about to buy:

ASRock Z370 Extreme4 = 160 EUR

16GB G.Skill RipJaws V schwarz DDR4-3200 DIMM CL16 Dual Kit = 144 EUR

CPU 8600k = 240 EUR versus 8400 = 170 EURO

Should I wait for new gen 9600K? If yes for when will happen and how much would it cost?

Should I choose other mainboard / ram alternatives for better price / value?

Thanks for the advices!

Assuming the i5-9600K is also six cores without hyper-threading, there's no point in waiting. As for your CPU being the bottleneck, you are talking about a game in early stages of development. Do users with a newer CPU and same video card have a better experience? It would be a shame if you threw all this money at an upgrade if it doesn't change much.

The new assuming i5 9600k should be introduced in October. From all the rumors it will only have speed bump with a 2-4% performance increase.
