I was possibly looking at ryzen for an upgrade to my 4790k i7, the recent vulnerabilities have made me think even if something like the 8700k is better even with the loss it still may not be the best bet.

Was thinking of using it mostly for things like emulation, and gaming.

The 4790k is a great CPU. Is there a reason why you need to upgrade? It's it the limiting factor in your PC?

Do you really need a new CPU? The 4790K is still good. What is your CPU not capable of that you need a better CPU for?

Don't let the 'vulnerabilities' get to you. that's the media trying to make it sound like it's worse then it is as with most things, it's really not that bad.

Odds are you are GPU bound, not CPU bound.

I have a 1080ti for my graphics card, just feel like time for an upgrade and more demanding games and such I see on youtube run better on the newer cpus even if its 5-15 fps difference.
