MMO cpu

I am building a new PC and I am coming with the eternal discussion between the 5800x3D and 13600K. I've been reading on them for quite a while, and I've seen that they can be quite close to one another trading blows. However, something I have heard but haven't seen much data about, is the MMO performance. I plan on playing some WoW and I figured the 5800x3D would be a better pick for that, but not sure how much it would help. I am also pairing it with a 6800XT and even if I am going the Intel way, I am looking to go DDR4 for now (and the 5800x3D combo would be about 30-50GBP less compared to the intel, considering a B650/Z690 motherboard as well).
