I am currently trying to decide what i7 system i want to build.
At the moment i’m running Cubase 8.5 with a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 on a AMD FX8370@4.2GHz with 16GB ram.
I hope i will be getting a performance boost across the board? but my main concern is realtime DAW performance.
I’ve been looking at i7-6700K/i7-7700K on Asus Z170 motherboard vs 6-8cores from intel.
What should i aim for? budget for RAM, Motherboard and CPU is around 600-800£ ~ 800-1000$.
Your input is much appreciated.
