New PC: Cores > RAM/Speed?

Just wanted to post a thank you to everyone that contributed to this thread. I am now the pround owner of an AMD 7700x with 32Gb DDR5 RAM , I couldn’t be a happier bunny :smiley:

All of the tricky projects of 40 or so tracks with heavy processing on each are now running smooth as can be, without any compromise in the way of frozen tracks or needing printed reverbs and delays.

I have noticed (and I brought it up on the Gearspace thread) that VSX has a huge CPU hit, nothing I could have noticed when EVERYTHING was running hot, but it is nevertheless a bigger CPU hog than I had thought.

So again, kudos to the helpful thoughts of @MattiasNYC @shagazulu @vinark @Trensharo @zip
