I am looking for parts for a new workstation and I can’t decide which CPU and motherboard to go for.
Currently, I am looking at the i9 9900K, the i9 7960X and the Threadripper 2970WX. The 9900K seems like a smart deal, since the other two are quite expensive. The AMD seems to be very power hungry, which I don’t like because I plan to do a lot of rendering. I tend to the fast Intel with less cores, but can talked into one of the bigger ones.
The system will be used with 3dsmax, Corona and Vray, Nuke and Photoshop, practically no gaming or GPU rendering.
I need some hints for parts. On the shopping list should be 2 fast disks and at 64 GB Ram and no fancy LED light crap, I like my computers black.
Budget is around 3000 Euro
