Worth the upgrade?

Is it worth upgrading my i7 6700K and Asus Z170 PRO GAMING Motherboard to a Ryzen 5 3600X with a ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING motherboard?

Also i may be planning on upgrading my GTX 1070 black edition to a 3070 when they release and i can get my hand on one, would the 3600X bottleneck the 3070?

EDIT: Is the 3600X even worth the extra money over the 3600?

Thanks.

Depending on what game youre playing your 6700k might even be slightly faster then the Ryzen in some cases, so no not worth it IMO.

@Boon72 is right, these new Ryzen chips are looking to be faster than Intels current chips both per core and overall. Wait and see for sure.
