With the recent releases of info on the 4000 series ryzen cpus in 1st half 2020 and Intels 10 series cpu debuting around the same time. I’ve been rethinking spending upgrade money right now to see what pans out. I’m hoping for a significant boost to get the best bang for my buck. Can’t wait to see what’s coming!

I'm in the exact same CPU boat as you. After doing a reasonable amount of research I've come to the conclusion that the current gen Intel and Ryzen CPU's are only giving about a 10-15% improvement in gaming performance over an overclocked 6700k. Hard to justify an upgrade imo for just gaming. Also depressing how little progress has been made in 3 years or more (aside from core count).
