Actually, not entirely correct. There are several games today that do 'care' and do use more than 4 cores. BF1, Battlefront II, Destiny 2, The Division, and many more use more than 4 cores. Future games will also do the same.
Intel just doesn't get it - especially there moronic marketing department and corporate level idiots that continue to make horrible business decisions. Not only is the Coffee Lake performance abysmal with literally no improvements in overall IPC ratings vs. Sky Lake and Kaby Lake, but their product line pricing is absolutely ludicrous stupidity at it's best. AMD will continue to destroy Intel at both the consumer and commercial markets because Intel just does not know how to adapt to existing trends and needs of their customers.
You guys seem to be up to date on cpu's...
Im about to buy a EVGA GTX 1080 Ti with ISC Cooler, aand right now I use a i5-6500 and therefore wish to upgrade, recently PS3 emulation have got better performance and my current setup (GTX 1060 6gb, i5-6500 8gb) is running Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time 9-12 fps in game using RPCS3 (latest software and Sony firmware) so Im looking for *> a cpu that can encode very well
No, you can not. Coffee Lake uses an all-new 1151 socket that utilizes different voltages. You will be required to buy a new Z370 motherboard if you want to upgrade to Coffee Lake. At least you will be able to reuse your DDR4 ;-)
