I’m interested in building a new i7 7820x system with x299 mobo. Anyone have experience with this processor and how it would compare with a 7700 or 8700?
I know the mobos are a different model, but trying to decide if I should go with the older x99 which many use OR dive into the x299 with the 7820x and the possibility of expanding into an i9 when the prices come down. The 7820x looks like a faster chip and 8 cores, compared to the others. Also any mobo suggestions in x299? I’d like 2 m.2 drives.
Suggestions? I usually track 32 mic inputs at once and monitor thru cubase 9.5 with 4 Presonus Firestudio projects. I would like to use the lowest buffer possible…hopefully 64 if possible. Realtime playback for tracking is very important. Mixdown is not as much of a buffer issue and I can increase it as needed.
