I am switching my laptop to a new desktop computer. Laptop has enough performance but it makes so much noise when under load, I can’t really stand it. I am using my pc for gaming and DAW use. I do pretty much 50/50
So, Now I am between 2 configurations:
Intel i5 10600K
1tb SSD M.2
Nvidia GTX 1660 Super
AMD Ryzen 3 3300X
Nvidia RTX 2060
Ryzen 3 3300X has very good single core performance but has lower clock speeds than Intel i5 10600K even when overclocked.
Both of the configurations have same price. But I am just not really sure how well Ryzen 3 3300X performs in cubase or will there be any compability issues with some VSTs? I have read some horror stories from the web.
My old desktop had 4770K and it had no issues running cubase and that cpu was old. My current laptop has I5 9300H and it also does the job,
only reason I want rid of this, is the noise. I have open headphones and the laptop is making so much noise, I have to turn up the volume on my headphones, and I already have tinnitus and hyperacusia so I am now building a virtually silent computer.
Intel Build Pros:
6 threads + HT = 12 total
Intel has better clockspeeds (up to 5ghz)
Cubase better optimized for intel?
Intel build Cons:
Intel has only PCIe 3
Lower RAM speed support
Need to buy new mobo for new cpu
Better RAM speed support
PCIe 4 support (worth it? I don’t really know)
New Zen coming soon, no need for new motherboard
Only 4 threads + HT = 8 total.
I would really appreciate if someone with Ryzen CPUs could give some info to me how their PC run compared to their old intel builds. There
is not much infor about intel vs ryzen DAW performance in Cubase. Also give your opinion. I am running on a limited budget. The reason
why I don’t have R5 3600 in the list, is because that has worse single core performance than 3300X. 3300X is really an amazing CPU for it’s price.
And if someone has 3300X, please let me know how it performs!
I do have Steinberg UR22C audio interface. Does it work well with AMD builds?
