The faster CPU you buy now, the longer you can go before you need to replace it. Common sense. It doesn't have to push higher FPS at 4k right now, it will eventually as soon as the GPU catches up with it. Of course the GPU will eventually catch up with the CPU at 4k. We would run into CPU bottlenecks at 4k on current games if GPU performance doubled. Not to mention future games that will come out during the life of a new system which will be even more challenging.
The whole just because the console is 8 cores does not make it so the PC side cant use more cores when needed. Thats just plain non sense. And I will wait for independant reviews before beliveing an Intel slide, most slides I have seen in the past from them have been fud, I guess they could have changed with this one and taken a page from AMD but I will believe it when I see it.
