Intel $500 (+ cooler) 8/16 CPU is just roughly 5-10% better than AMD $320 ar 1080p depending on the game, and at 1440p the difference is negligible.
So while i agree that Intel is the best in perfomance, the advantage is very small, and not worth it imo. I would rather buy a 3900x for more future proof or a better GPU.
So you'd spend $500 on a CPU that is a few percent faster than the $200 3600 just for future proofing? But won't spend $500 on a CPU that is already proven to be faster?
And what about Zen3, don't you know that AMD releases faster CPUs every 15 months? A $200 Zen3 will probably be faster than the 3900x, but still slower than Intel.
