AutoCADs been around for years. If they're going to change, it's slow coming. You'd figure apps like that would be among the first pieces of software to hop onto the core bandwagon and optimize their code, but they haven't done it yet. Very strange.

NEVER upgrade because of something that might happen/you might need.
Things are changing way to fast for that to ever make any sense.

A 4690k is more than capable as a gaming mashine. And as AutoCAD themselves say GHZ rules in their program.
= 4,4GHz is better than a Ryzen where you might be able to hit 4GHz.

I ran CAD on a business Lenovo laptop 6-7 years ago. (Not big designs, but still)

Agreed if he absolutly had to upgrade, then get a bigger model if the moneys there.
But if you have something that works at what you do, it will always be better to wait.
1-2 years from now, something new will be out.
