Even then my only expectation was that it would prevent any CPU bottleneck for when I upgrade my graphics card beyond the GTX 1070 I owned now. I ran some benchmarks of the Batman Arkham games and the average fps for each at 1440p at max detail ( minus the interactive fog and debris for Arkham Knight) and this CPU raised the minimum framerates across the board. It turned out I was already bottlenecked and the 8600k alleviated it.
I should clarify that I was already able to achieve 70+ fps in these games before, but the streaming issues with the UE3 engine would cause many drops below 60 and occasionally in the 40's when gliding in the games at max detail especially Arkham Knight), which was disparaging for a GTX 1070. Even overclocking didn't work, and now I know it was due to the 4690k. Before, Arkham Knight used to dip into 50's and 40's when gliding over certain parts of the city and while driving. I just went over those areas again and those dips are gone ( I guess since the game was mostly optimized for the PS4, it preferred having more cores). I was actually struggling to find ways to lower the FPS outside of enabling more of the gameworks features. Certain stress points in the older games have also had less dips.
Lesson learned, even though a lot of sources may say the previous Intel quad-cores may be enough to give you a good amount of frames, the extra cores from the eighth gen can certainly raise the minimums.
Only downside is I'll need a space heater for my office, my old amd 955 worked great in that regard.
