Does Ryzen have TSX?
While AMD Ryzen CPUs do not support TSX, recent tests of this game console emulator revealed performance improvements there too.
Is the 4770K still good?
At 1440p and high/ultra details settings your current i7 4770K will do a decent job in games, just don’t expect the same level of performance as newer CPU like the 10600K/10700K or the soon to be released Ryzen 5000 series (well even some Ryzen 3000 series will do better than your current CPU in some games).
What is Haswell E?
Haswell-E/EP Officially known as 5th Gen Core i7 Extreme Edition processors for consumer and Intel Xeon E5 2600 v3 for workstation/Enterprise, Haswell-E is best for higher demand users like extreme gamers or media creators. More efficient use of RAM and support for DDR4 go a long way to better overall performance.

What is TSX computer?
Transactional Synchronization Extensions (TSX), also called Transactional Synchronization Extensions New Instructions (TSX-NI), is an extension to the x86 instruction set architecture (ISA) that adds hardware transactional memory support, speeding up execution of multi-threaded software through lock elision.
What is hardware transactional memory?
Hardware Transactional Memory (HTM) gives software developers the opportunity to write parallel programs more easily compared to any previous programming method, and yields better performance than most previous lock-based synchronizations. Current implementations of HTM perform very well with small transactions.
