    frame times. some games that make use of more than 6 threads experience frame time issues on a 6 core cpu like the 8600k. many/most games still favour the intel chippies.
    many also favour amd arch.

    ...so the 8 core /16 thread thing...or possibly the 9700k 8/8 is the way to go. imho. you'll find a bottleneck with the cpu with higher powered gpu's, or whatever depending on your grfx settings., res. etc.

    some games will favour higher ram speeds too, more than others.
    9900ks are friggen hot. blablabla. 2cents.
    i have a 8600k but a low powered gpu, so the gpu is the bottleneck for me as far as i am aware. perhaps the cpu is still a problem for me ..i dont know.
