These kind of benchmarks are just dry numbers, with little relation to real world performance in specific tasks. I never bother looking at them - instead look for concrete examples of stuff you will be doing: eg GTA V @1440p or mp4 compress time, stuff like that. And even these difference might not matter much - so what if something is 25% faster if it's already very fast?

The fact that your CPU is 7 years old is meaningless if its performance is still great That is the biggest worry for the manufacturers hence the entire hype industry built around it.

@Valken: I see second hand 7700K costs ~400USD, then you need MB, RAM etc. A lot of dosh. What kind of emulation are you saying it will make big difference to? Can it really affect something like WinUAE?
