I will building a new workstation and I forget how many post that I have ever read about it watched bunch of videos and finally I am so confused. I was thinking to buy i9 7940x but that CPU is really bad for after effects? If it is.. only getting render? I do not have any time issue for rendering. I just want to work on huge project like 4K-6K footage and cinemaDNG codec as a live preview. i9 7940x is really bad choose for After Effects? Or the almost the same performance with i7 8700K? everybody is choosing i7 8700K because of price/performance? I have been thinking to fix multi-core issue with rendergarden, if it bothers me So could you help me out please? I am really so confused what I need to choose http://www.userbenchmark.com/PCBuilder/Custom/S67316-M347462.251565.200815.161079.102222vsS59466-M353078.251565.200815.1…  [Apr '18 eraizgn]

MORE DETAILS

The Ryzen 7 3800X is an 8-core, 16-thread high end desktop Zen 2 processor, built on AMD’s seminal 7nm manufacturing process. It has a boost clock speed of 4.5 GHz, overtaking the previous Zen+ flagship, the Ryzen 7 2700X, by 200 MHz and around 16% in terms of effective speed. The 3800X is available at launch for $399 USD alongside four other new Zen 2 processors, including the similarly specified Ryzen 7 3700X. The main differences between the 3800X and 3700X being an extra 100 MHz of boost clock frequency on the 3800X and extra TDP headroom (105W for the 3800X versus 65W for the 3700X) for a $70 USD premium. The 21% higher release price translates to just a 2% higher effective speed over the 3700X. The 3800X is in direct competition with Intel’s i7-9700K, benchmarks show that, when overclocked, the 3800X is 10% worse for gaming but 30% faster for 64-core processing. The 3800X is also 15% ($50 USD) more expensive than the i7-9700K. Additionally, the 3800X's memory controller, although significantly improved over previous Ryzen iterations, still has limited bandwidth and high latency which can also impact gaming. Like the other third generation Ryzen processors, the 3800X is compatible with the new PCIe 4.0 enabled X570 chipset as well as the 400 and 300 series motherboards. [Jul '19 CPUPro]
