Should I wait a month before upgrading CPU?

So I was thinking about upgrading lately (it's been a long time coming - i5-2500k! ) but seeing that new CPUs are about to be released, should I wait until then?

 

It's mainly for gaming so I had my eyes on a 9700k.

1) yes

2) you've waited this long. what's another few months?

3) don't buy a 9700k. it's basically an admitted mistake by intel.

Ryzen 4000 series is expected around September-October according to some rumors. Do you want to wait that long or do you have the money now?

Intel 9th gen and 10th gen - ehh, sort of useless seeing current Ryzen options.

Damn, I thought both intel's and AMD's new CPU's were at the end of this month. September is a little long to wait.

I'm was getting stuttering issues with Kingdom Come and COD Warzone barely even runs. What's the best options right now?

Thanks guys!

 

Edit: Should probably mention that my GPU is a 1070 so I don't think it's that causing the issues. The old 2500k with its 4 little cores must be holding me back there.

You can always buy the 3600 from Amazon (only if sold by Amazon themselves) and return it when 4000 comes out. Amazon have a 2 year no questions asked return policy. 

Isn't amazon.com 30 daysand amazon.sg is 15 days??
