Should I upgrade my 6700k for 1440p? I just upgraded to 2070s. I'm upgrading my 144Hz 1080p monitor to a 1440p 144Hz. Think that CPU can hack it? I have it stable at 4.6 Ghz. And there's still some OCing head room.
 
Theres nothing on that socket worth upgrading to.

As someone that has the ever slight more powerful 7700K, 1400P runs fine, some games def push the bounds of 4c/8t and I myself will be upgrading to Ryzen once the B550 boards are out for alittle while.

Don't change, for now. Wait for intels 10nm chips, or AMD Zen 3 ones, and then you can watch and read a few reviews and see if its worth it (you can take the i7 7700K as a point of reference if your cpu isn't in the charts).

Cheers
 
The intel 10th gen processor release was needed to combat the ryzen success.
They are better price/performers than the 9th gen processors and have higher single core performance.
That is still the strength of Intel for gamers.
If one is going to buy new intel today, 10th gen is better than 9th,

However, change is on the horizon.
Rumors are that amd will offer an updated ryzen in the fall, and Intel will respond.
The big thing will be the IPC improvements, if any.
Intel has shown some 18% ipc improvement in mobile processors with the new architecture.
The question is if it will be on a 14 or 10nm process.
Since 14nm is more mature, one can expect a higher clock rate to be available initially so that might be one option vs. 10nm.

On the amd side there may or may not be a big ipc change.

Both will tout pcie 4.0 but since there are no parts today that can benefit from 4.0, I see that as mostly marketing for a while.

All this comes down to buy what you need from available products when you need it.
