I’ve had my current pc with the i7 960 and 18gig ram for quite some years. It still performs well especially since I got a SSD a couple of years ago however I use vsti much more now and this is where it is starting to struggle.
The question is do I go for the i7 9700k or the i9 9900k? Are there any problems associated with the i9 and will I notice a difference with Cubase 10.5?
I would want to run with low buffers for latency as I do now and still get a decent performance. Are either of these better when trying run at low buffers? I use SD3 a lot and record using my Roland td30 so latency performance is essential.
Memory wise I’m looking at 32gig. There are a few places that offer builds as I want them with both these CPUs but not really any information out there about DAW working with them.
It’s not the price difference I’m worried about but if there are problems with Cubase with either of these. I use to build myself but I’m getting lazy these days.
