    Upgrade 8700k?

    I recently got a 3090 and im still running an 8700k at 4.7 GHz I was wondering if it would be worth it to upgrade to like a newer ryzen 5000 cpu or 11th gen when it comes out

    I game at 3440x1400 200hz and im fine with anything over 80 fps which I get in basically everything so im just wondering if it would be worth it

    all i do is gaming
    BTK is my initials if you were wondering.

    i7 8700K - RTX 3090 - 32 GB RAM - ASUS PG35VQ

    i5 8600K - GTX 1080ti - 16 GB RAM - ASUS PG27UQ

    Probably wait around for the 11th gen release and see some figures before making a decision. 8700K probably hold you over for a while.
