It's hard to tell. Do you already have a compatible motherboard?Is the i3 8350k worth it for $169.99, is it basically a i5 7600k/ i5 6600k which has similar gaming performance to a i7 7700k, and does i3 8350k have similar gaming performance to i7 7700k?
Yes, I agree, I'd go for the R5-2600 over the i3-8350K. If you're going for upgrade possibilities you will have 3rd and 4th generation Ryzens to look forward to. Otherwise with Intel you're stuck with Z390 until you buy a new motherboard.The Ryzen 5 2600 is the best value in this price range period. 8th gen intel is basically dead unless you want to shell out for a Z390 board but that’s a waste of money for an i3 and will only provide you an upgrade path to the 9th gen series. A 2600 with a nice B450 board (which allows OC) will be cheaper and better than a 8350k with a similarly priced H310 board(which does not allow OC). That’s the end of the debate. The i3 might excel in some single thread workloads but you will not notice it in real world usage. Buy the Ryzen or wait and see what intel does this year.
Yeah try to do that,your new CPU will run the same way your 2017 CPU would run,ZEN+ on older zen mobos already looses the better mem controller which is the only (or at least the main) reason that ZEN+ is faster.You can buy a cpu in 2017 and still get latest tech without a new mobo 3 years later,
It's odd (to me, anyway) that the Z370/Z390 platform is somehow referred to as 'dead end', while some are virtually frothing at the mouth with praise over another platform's ability to dispose of a currently owned CPU and perhaps replace/upgrade it with another CPU that matches the 'dead end' 9900K's performance.... when the new CPU releases ....~5 months from now....
Ponder those deep-thought 'CPU-wars thought bits' and, perhaps a little element of the humorous irony of that situation for a little while....

It is the same kind of humbug AMD pulled on AM3 when they released the E models with half the clocks to not break their promise to people that their old mobos would support 8core CPUs...
