You are likely fine to sit out this gen. I have a 3900X and the only reason I am getting a new chip is because it is my hobby.This is a bit of a weird spot if we stay at 8 cores for a good while. I have 9900K, you'd have to tempt with with crazy IPC improvements to get me to buy another 8c CPU instead of a 12+. I imagine quite a lot of people are in a similar situation.
