I am building a new high end system. I ordered a Ryzen 2990WX (32 core, 64 thread) but I think I will send it back when it arrives. I was linked to these reviews which indicate glitchy performance of these Ryzen processors on high load or low latency which defeats the purpose:
So then that leaves the new Intel processors. It looks like the i9-9980XE will be the top CPU on the market once it becomes publicly available in the next week or two. From the links above, it looks like the Intel processors hold up much better on low latency which is ideal.
I require as much power as possible as I do additive synthesis with my own synths I’ve written and they are very CPU intensive. I like low latency because it allows more “real time” feeling for recording and playback performances.
Is the i9-9980XE likely king of the mountain?
