Need to upgrade my 6700K Skylake build

Looking at upgrading my now aging system to something that will handle new and up coming titles.
The new DDR5 platforms are now as must for going forward from a future upgrade perspective.

My question is should I go with a Ryzen build or stick with Intel for this generation?

All I will want to be doing is replacing the CPU, Mobo, Ram, CPU Cooler, and PSU
(My PSU is getting on and a faulty / aged one could kill the system due to a surge)

This time around Z Line (Intel) and X Line (AMD) Motherboards don't offer many more features other than a second GPU slot (redundant) than the B Line (Both Intel & AMD) maybe better boost clocks on some models maybe and power distribution im guessing?

Also I generally prefer ASUS (motherboards) due to their reliability if thats any help.

Many thanks in advance.

@BasardAre you saying you already have DDR5 RAM? If you're wanting to upgrade to a DDR5 board, you will need DDR5 RAM as well. If you're not used to the idiosyncrasies of AMD chipsets, I'd say stick with what you know and stay Intel. I know a lot of folks who have had a ton of problems figuring out AMD issues if they've been Intel-only. If you're familiar with AMD, then I'd say go for the best bang for the buck.

I'd also check for the number of NVME slots on both, those are essential for modern gaming. If only 1, it's not enough. If 2 it's adequate. 4 is preferred.

I would wait till the 27th, amd's 7000 chips will be released for actually 3rd party benchmarking, along with that day intel is suppose to announce details it's raptor lake 13k series

Yeah I'll have to purchase new Ram mate If I go AMD.

I still have 2x 2-Terabyte FireCuda SSHD Drives (lol) and 3 Older SSD's currently. So I'm guessing 2 NVME slots would be the sweet spot for me if i get hold of 2 new Drives. 😁

Roll on the 27th mate :)
