Worth upgrading to ryzen ?

My friend currently has a 2500k at 4.6ghz with a gtx 980.

He plays games like PUBG, CSGO, Overwatch and Fornite.

Is it worth it for him to upgrade from a 2500k to a 2600x? What do you guys think? Saw some benchmarks on youtube, seems like a 30fps difference in games.

i7-9700k 4.9ghz, 16gb Dominator Platinum 3000mhz, Asus z370-f Mobo, GTX 1080 JETSTREAM, 970 evo m.2, s340 elite. Corsair h115i CPU cooler.

For CS:GO, not really. The Source engine would much prefer an 8600K over a 2600X.

For everything else, more than likely. Fortnite and PUBG will eat up CPU power if it's got it and Overwatch will appreciate it.

Yea i was thinking the same, but the ryzen is on sale now with a bundle for like 550$ with motherboard and ram.

Personal experience... i hope this helps you.

 

Going from i5-7600K oc'd to 4.8ghz i was stable low 100fps on pubg. When i swapped to a Ryzen 7 2700x i was holding 130+ fps on PUBG. All the same hardware. No other changes. 1080p.

I would wait for CES and look at the Ryzen 3000 series. If the rumors/specs are true it will blow the 2000 series ryzen chips out of the water. And will certainly be a very nice upgrade from your 2500k.

Potential spec's listed here.

Im slightly praying those 3000 chips will work on an x470 board lol

All AMD CPU/MOBO's are backwards/forwards compatible with a bios update.
