I want to upgrade from a kaby lake to coffee lake for better performance and future proof. Is it worth it or should I hold in a little longer?
PC was built in Japan in 2017.
But here is what I am looking to buy:
Current CPU and Mobo:
Asus Prime H270 Plus
Zip Code: 96504 (FPO)
Games I play:
Flight Sims (P3D, Microsoft Flight Sim and DCS),
I only buy from Amazon.
If you have a better upgrade path let me know please.
The improvement from a 7500 to a 9400 is about 10% single threaded. You do get a couple extra cores, which might help a couple of those programs. I'd take a look at performance monitor to see if all four cores are maxed out with your current CPU; if they aren't, you won't see a lot of improvement with the 9400F.
