After a surprisingly long time where I saw no reason to upgrade my machine at all and mostly played old indie games, I’m looking at least replacing my video card for Cyberpunk, Control, etc. And I realize that I have paid absolutely now attention to the consumer CPU market for the last several years. Steam popped up a hardware survey and my CPU seemed slower than average, but clock rate seems like an imprecise measurement. I bought a Intel i7-8700 Coffee Lake back in October of 2017 and remember thinking it was absurdly fast then, but that’s 2 1/2 years old now.
Am I good? What should I have to play new games?
