But how often do you render. I would say grab a 9900KS or a 3900x and youll be fine either way. It will be blazing fast and what not.
you should take your own advice

please ask this dude for sources for any broad statements made between these two products. He thinks he NEEDS intel's new 10x for protools.
investigate post history if you'd like to know more.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
