Out of touch with current gen.

Currently running :

i5 4670k @ 4.4 Ghz
16gb Dominator Platinum 1866 memory DDR3
GTX 1070

Any upgrade that would be a benefit in gaming ?

Or should i just hold on to my money

Cheers.

Right now, nothing.

When the i7 7700k is available, it'll be mildly better.

If/when games use 6+ cores all the time, then Broadwell-E and Zen would be good upgrades. But for now that's not a concern.

Depends if you are noticing any performance drops in games.

I went from a 4690k to a 5820k and noticed an improvement in some titles but it's a fair amount to lay down for an upgrade.

Stick mate, any upgrade right now wouldn't be worth the £££.

unless you find a dirt cheap 4770k or 4790k I would hold on.

I had the 4690k and never had any plans but through a deal I got my 4770k for my 4690k and not a lot of cash so I went for it.

Just to chime in with my two pence. I have a 3570k @ 4.4GHz and am noticing hitching in BF1. Mostly during screen changes rather than actual game play. This is paired with 16Gb of Ram and a 970 G1.

I'm kind of thinking its the CPU that's the issue.

And there isn't much in it between a 3570k and a 4670k.
