just bought a brand new computer for music production and let it professionally build. It runs on an i9-10940X and I thought I see some Cubase performance improvements over my 5,5 year old 5960x computer. I loaded a heavy project I worked on before I replaced my computer and must admit that I don’t see any improvements. The average load is as high as on the 5960x.
Now I kind of regret buying a new computer instead of reparing the old one, since the motherboard on my 5960x machine broke.
Hope this info helps someone out. I was researching weeks and weeks on the internet and could not find real DAW comparisons between those two processors.
