[Question] i7 10700k or Ryzen 7 3800XT?


Hello members,

I right now have an i7-4930k with a GTX 1080 ti but I want to see better performance in gaming and be prepared for FS2020. Should I go for the i7-10700k or the Ryzen 7 3800XT? I don’t need more than 8 cores for gaming right now, so I see no point in a 3900X or 3950X (even though I can afford those) for just gaming right now or any time soon, especially since the upcoming PS5 and XBox Series X are going to have 8-core/16-thread CPUs.

If it’s just for gaming, then the 10700k is definitely ahead.

I trust Gamersnexus over any other source. Results at 1080p, stock to stock, is about ~12-15%. Intel has a bit more (though not much more) overclock headroom, so assuming you want to overclock you can add a few more percentage points to the lead. This is at 1080p with a 2080ti, though.

Not sure where everything stands with a 3090 now, though.
