If you only need gaming performance, there is no reason to switch. But it is just a simple CPU swap.best for gaming it also has good app performance. I'm not sure if I can switch from 12600k? It is more logical to wait for the 14th generation.
14th gen will require a new motherboard. We do not know much about Meteor Lake right now, except that it will use multiple dies in a single package. But rumors say that it will not be able to clock as high as Alder/Raptor Lake, which are on a very mature process. 14th gen will be the first one using the new Intel 4 process. I would not be surprised if gaming performance was actually lower because of that.
I do not think it is a major architecture change for the actual CPU cores. I think the main purpose is to switch to the multi-chip approach. It will have much better efficiency, but not peak performance. Mobile is the main focus here.
