AMD Ryzen 7 5800X Review: 8-Core Battle vs. 10700K

Not true at all as AMD CPUs have shown to performance better over time then Intel.
Think again. My six years old I7 6700k Skylake trades blows in games vs Ryzen 7 3700x, which was released last year. Ryzen 7 3700x is only 4% faster as effective speed and only beats it in applications because of more core count and a smaller node process 7nm vs 14nm. Tell me just one AMD CPU from six years ago still on that level. You can`t. In fact, first gen Ryzens are already starting to become obsolete.

Your i7-6700k is going to slowly become obsolete. PC games will start requiring 8 core CPUs like the 3700X for 4k gaming. Your CPU is already a bottleneck. Now you can always game at Medium to Low at 1080p. Just look at game specs coming out. And there is the fact that some of us (me) actually do more then game on our PC. We earn a living using them.

That`s beside the point and the point is AMD CPUs until Ryzens were pretty much garbage (I own a FX8350) and it`s a flat-out lie what you had initially said that they hold better over time. I just gave you an example of a six years old Intel CPU battling AMD`s last year`s. A lot of people make a fuss about being faster in applications, but nobody talks about latency. I use Ableton and latency is more important than speed, unless you want distortions. AMD CPUs are historically bad in latency, although they have improved lately. My original point was not "don`t buy AMD", but rather not just yet. If the new Ryzens will hold up against RocketLake/Alder Lake than I`m all in.
