i want to play on 4k @60hz i am upgrading only cpu ram and motherboard my current specs are:Around here, we don't ask what your current setup is, budget, gaming resolution, and games you're playing. We just make random recommendations!
If you want to stay with Intel, a 10600K is a great choicei want to play on 4k @60hz i am upgrading only cpu ram and motherboard my current specs are:
gtx 1660ti 6gb
seasonic x650 gold psu
corsair carbide spec 03
which z490 motherboard will you recommend and ram?
If you go with the 10600K as Gikaseixas recommended, it looks like reviews are recommending 3200 - 3600mhz. That will allow you room to overclock. You ideally want something CL16 (timing) or less.ryzen 5000 will be of same price as intel? and i will play at 1080p till i get gpu thats not prblem and can you tell tell in ram timing is important or frequency does 3600mhz really help?
or go with 3000?
Its hard to say until release day. Most likely you can get an AMD that is faster than the 10600k for the same price. We need the reviews (out in the next 2 weeks??), but if you are a hardcore gamer and want to play at 4k eventually, the 5000 series Ryzen is most like what you need. As for the memory, again, we need reviews, but most likely 3600 cl16 or better is the way to go.ryzen 5000 will be of same price as intel? and i will play at 1080p till i get gpu thats not prblem and can you tell tell in ram timing is important or frequency does 3600mhz really help?

It'll be . . . yeah, whenever Intel gets around to launching these things. March latest, I would assume. For Intel's sake, let's hope Rocket Lake isn't as late as Comet Lake-S. That would be embarrassing. Regardless, I can't recommend an Intel platform to anyone right now unless they're going to buy Z490 today to upgrade to Rocket Lake later. So if you're going to go Intel, at least see what Rocket Lake-S brings to the table.That will be quite a while. He looks like he is open to Ryzen now, asking about it.
They locked down the gaming market, but will most likely loose that in the next 2 weeks to Ryzen 5000 series.DrMrLordX is spot on with the Intel assessment.
Intel is currently not that motivated to do much. They locked down the gaming market (raw performance-wise), and are doing very well in the business arena (roughly 70 percent market share). Intel's laziness seems to be a good position for AMD, and AMD are now gaining market shares compared to Intel. We (consumers) all win when the gap narrows, so I'm looking forward to see what happens!!
May I ask what games qualify as "heavy" by you? I haven't owned AMD in a long time, but when I did it was without problems. This being true, and not being a fanboy of any kind, I can't bash AMD. What I can say is that I've been VERY satisfied with my current rig: 9900k, 2080 super, 32G corsair vengeance and a Corsair ax1200i DSP PSU. For the past 8-months this rig has played everything I've tossed at it with room to spare for maxed out graphic settings and a muscular load of win10 overhead.Well, then you won't do as well at the heavy games that you want, good luck with that.
