AMD RYZEN 7 1700 Processor 3.7/3.1GHZ 8 Core 16 Thread 65W TDP AM4 Retail Box w/ Wraith Spire Cooler vs I5-6600K 3.50GHZ 6M Cache FC-LGA14C LGA1151 Processor Retail Package Skylake
 
I'll be waiting for the ryzen 6c/12t r5 1600 mate - that's where your price/performance ratio is going to be.

For the sake of 3 weeks its worth waiting it out IMO

$100 cheaper than the 1700 & for 99% of users performance is going to be the same.

What are you gonna use it for?
Gaming, 7600K
Web browsing, 6600K
Productivity, 1700

Right now more cores only comes in handy in a handful of games, you should look at the benchies for games you play, and use that to decide. In the future, it will be more important to have more stronger cores, but by the time that comes to pass more than likely there will be newer processors to choose from, hopefully AMD can put enough pressure on Intel to make Intel come out with 6/12 or 8/16 processors for the mainstream.
