hahahhahaha well thanks for the laughs, you didnt even mention the chart where there isnt a 4 fps difference but instead a 11-15fps difference, you didnt mention if you would buy a 710$+ cpu and cooler or if you would get a lower priced 10900k, you did touch on value of motherboards (but i dont understand you either get features you want or you dont and i dont care about pcie4) funny you mention a 2100$ pc when just the gfx card alone is 2000$! what happen to needing a more powerful PSU for this crazy power hungry 125w tdp chip!? should i get the 2000w psu or will the 850w titanium i already own be good enough? highs and lows are not for everyone, some people cant even notice the difference between 60 fps and 120fps some people dont notice pixels or rainbow effects from projectors, and SOme do. So my guess is you would rather buy a rendering cpu to play games on then a gaming cpu to play games on the 3700x is the closest listing in tomb raider and its 30fps away from the high and almost 20fps from the low.Do you like percentages is that it?
how about single digit percentage, do you want me to teach you how much % is 64 in 60? You can then use that number in any game you want.
Might use a pcie4 gpu or a pcie4 m.2 now or latter?
Are you sure you are really a gamer? I mean you didn't mention things like noise, because of the 'hot' intel will add that up, i know you can solve the problem with $$$, but $$$ are always $$$. Maybe you have unlimited funds or just like to pay a premium for no reason.
If that's the case then you need to know that the amd board is more valuable at the same price of the intel.
But that 100$ is 100$, and i see that argument here a lot!
It's not some percentage number, i don't have x% of money in my bank account i have $$$.
If the pc cost 2100$, why not save 100$ and pay 2000$. If all components are the same it means those 100$ are money to use else where!
That's why we are here to discuss, i try to understand your point of view, you try to understand mine. Then we argue
im not saying this chip is great or spectacular but it obviously is better at gaming (even if it is only the 4fps you claim ) ((even tho all the benches show more than 4fps what ever ) we all have our priorities in life, i choose a honda on my last purchase over the toyota because it had better gas mileage AND horse power, the toyota had better ride and sound, i wanted better speed and gas mileage so i went honda. as far as motherboards, just give me good audio / 10gbps lan 6+usb3 and im good to go. Not being able to upgrade the cpu well i usually give away my whole rig and buy another one so.. i guess its OK, a 200$ motherboard is just one time eating out at a nice restaurant.
