Aidan- wroteThe main reason i started dwelling on the thought of it was after viewing some benchmarks (according) to what i have seen, it was anywhere between 15/45fps frame differences if i had the i7 6850k as apposed to the Ryzen 5900x paired with a Ti or AMD GPU.
What benchmarks were these? There are no reliable RX 6000 bemchmarks yet so the benchmarks you've seen would have had to be done with an RTX 3080 or 3090?
What clock speed were both CPU's running at, and what RAM was used with each test system?
What resolution were the benchmarks done at? For anywhere near a 45FPS difference, Id have to imagine that was 1080p benchmarks? The performance difference at 3440x1440/4k vs 1080p will be huge. CPU is much less important as resolution increases.

Hopefully NVidia grab their fingers out their asshole and release a Ti sooner than later as the Green Team is my preferred choice, solely for the G Sync I'm now tied into with my Ultrawide
Thanks for the response
RTX 3080Ti if it exists is likely to just be a 12GB 3090 basically. The 3090 already isn't hugely more performant than a 3080, so I would probably suggest just considering an RTX 3080 for $700, if you can find one in stock.
If you go AMD, then the 6900X doesn't look like it'll be worth the $350 premium over the 6800X IMHO. 6800X looks to be a good buy if you can deal without NVidia specific features like G-Sync, DLSS, etc.
