Intel vs Amd

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I have intel i7-8700 I want to upgrade and I am wondering if I should stick with Intel or go to Amd and if I were to go to Amd what cpu would be the best with an  RTX2080.

Tf do u do that requires u to have something better than that :NotLikeThis:

your current cpu should not bottleneck paired with a 2080, and even then if it does it will be so insignificant that you’d barely notice. IMO it’s a waste but if you wanted to upgrade go for a current gen i7 since it shares the same socket, but even then it’d still be a huge waste since aside from the +2 cores there’s not much to gain.

Why the heck would you want to upgrade from an 8700? It’s more than good enough for the next year or so at least for most games & consumer applications.

You have a 6-core processor that literally uses the same socket as the newer Intel processors but has a couple less cores and a slightly lower frequency; not worth upgrading right now but if you want to, you should wait a couple years.
