Is it worth upgrading from an Athlon X4 845 to this? 16% better according to Game debate, but I don't know if it's worth it.

AMD Athlon have an older architecture and Skylake Pentium will has a supperior IPC compared to AMD. But the Skylake Pentium only has 2 threads, so in some programs that supports4 threads and multithreading a X4 880K might be better.
But why do you ask? Your current CPU are better then Athlon and Pentrium.
