Very simply, I need to upgrade my DAW and I don’t understeand what kind of processor is better for my work… I’ve Cubase 8.5.30 Pro, Windows 10 Pro x64, Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 audio interface and I work (for now) only with midi, using Vienna Symphonic Library vst (actually I’m using Vienna Special Bundle 1 + plus). So, I’m an orchestral composer for videogames (or rather, I try to be ahahahah), and I looking for Vienna Dimension Strings, Brass ecc… Is better a multicore processor like 6800k (6 core) or a quadcore processor like 7700k with more core frequency ? And why?
Oh! My budget is around 500€, and I’m open to other proposals (actually I’ve the i7 4790)
So, I thank you all guys for your support, and at the end I think that I will go on the 6800K, cause I saw that chipset x99 (socket 2011-v3) have 8 RAM slots and in the future I can upgrade with other performing CPU (likes 6900k, 5960x, 6950x) cause they have the same socket!
