WAAYYYYY better. Totally get it. If you're looking for budget though. I recommend getting a Ryzen CPU if you don't have that much money. It seems like you do though since your considering getting an i7 8700K. 8 cores are better, but the quality of the cores really count. FX cores are trash and not quality. Intel cores, however, are quality, and even if you have fewer cores, it will still perform better. AMD Ryzen series, however, is way better in quality. Plus if you're going to get a new CPU, you also need to get an entirely different motherboard and the sockets are different. Tell me your price range if you want me to find one for you.
