I’ve been researching the spec for my new PC but the more I read the more confused I get regarding Ryzen versus Intel.
Basically I can get the exact same spec with a Ryzen 5 3600 six core 3.6GHz as I can with i5-10600k 4.1Ghz but the Ryzen is £150 cheaper.
I do audio recording and use a few plugins (some synths, Addictive drums, Addictive keys). My requirements aren’t especially high.
Just wondering if it’s worth paying £150 more for the intel setup (or indeed paying the same price but getting Ryzen 3600x ).
At the moment I’m on a 10 year old Dell PC running Windows 7 which considering its age and the fact it’s dual core only runs pretty well. It can handle many tracks of audio and several VST without falling over. It’s only when recording the mod wheel as I play synth for some reason it collapses.
I have read a lot of commentary about Cubase/Ryzen or indeed music/Ryzen not being a good combination. Or has that issue gone away with the more recent chips?
