Processor manufacturers want us to update our computer almost every year. After all, how can we do without a ten percent performance gain, because three frames per second solve absolutely everything? In fact, not everything is so deplorable, because sometimes there are big breakthroughs that lead to the growth of power of the whole computer, and sometimes you can sit on an old man five years ago.
One of the most popular processors is Core i5, produced by Intel. They differ in large batches, acting as a great alternative to the flagship. The guys from YouTube channel TheSpyHood decided to find out how much has changed the real performance of processors in 10 generations, at the same time to determine whether it is appropriate to update the processor often. Let’s have a look at the screenshots.
So, the models from Core i5-750 to Core i5-10600K were in opposition. As you can see, the difference between the eighth and tenth generation is minimal. This means that the owners of Core i5-8600K can not worry for long. But the owners of Core i5-2500K and i5-3570K should think about switching to new technologies. The point is that even with a GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card, the old stone loses a lot of performance. You can survive a 15% loss, but here, 30 percent or more just burn. The situation will be even worse with a less expensive graphics card.

Forza Horizon 4
Red Dead Redemption 2
Resident Evil 3
If you still have the Core i5-4690K, Core i5-6600K or Core i5-7600K, it all depends on your gaming requirements. If you don’t plan to play new games, the losses won’t be as noticeable, but if not, you should consider upgrading your computer.
