so i really want the i7 8700k cause my i5 6500 its struggling a lot recently ( my gpu is a gtx 1070),
but i dont know if i should wait until next year i mean the ryzen 3000 and the new 10nm intel architecture, is it worth to upgrade to the 8700k now? i dont want to wait the next gen but maybe its the right thing to do, what do you guys think?
 
The 1070 is usually a good 1440p choice. So as long as you are gaming at 1440p or less, I don't see why you need to wait. The 8700k isn't going to be too slow for games for a long time. New tech is always on the horizon, so how long are you willing to wait?
