I run fortnite at 120 fps and epic settings with a core i5 - 6500 and a 1080........ its a single core game, it needs clock speed and descent gpu. I rarely drop below 100 fps, seems to only happen in the loading area. I can maintain 120 in tilted towers :p

It's not a single core game. Either way PUBG runs like a potato so an 8700k is warranted even if Fortnite runs great on 4 core/4 threads.

i may be parting with my 8700k in the near future.. im about to pull the trigger on a new 7820X .. if I do, I'll be selling the 8700K. however, it may be a few weeks until im in a position to sell it. because im doing a new build, into a new case, i wont be dismantling the 8700k build until the other is completed (cant be without a PC, yknow?)

lol

i came form a 6600k and you definitely do not need to warrant a platform upgrade to 8700k for just pubg and fortnte

the game is poorly optimized so believing that you can just throw raw compute at it might not be the best approach
but i do suggest that throwing raw gpu power helps better!!!

for pubg i jumped up maybe 5-10 fps on 1440 resolution 144hz (maybe) , on ultra settings jumping from 6600k to 8700k

granted i'm running a 1080ti

when i had my 970 single and sli on 6600k , i was averaging 40-60fps , single and dual ( game doesn't really like sli)
to 1080ti i jumped up to ultra settings averaging 100-120 fps

going to a beefier video card made all the difference


if you're playing at 1080p and under , then yeah that'll help your frames

but i think a videocard upgrade ( if it's in budget ) makes for more appreciable gains
