Reaching out here for my friend who is looking to replace his 10 year old workhorse and I didnt see creativity focused builds featured nor does the forum let me search for most recent posts about lightroom
Looking for some pointers on how important each part will be important for the build
CPU: Short list the 3700X vs the 9900K, The lack of hyperthreading rules out the 9700k and the $100 price difference between these two cards have had me wondering how important is multithreading for the adobe suite AMDs single core performance is within 15% of Intel's with AMD matching it on Multithread performance Any help on this is appreciated. (Old rig had the 2700k from way back,it lasted him a decade)
Motherboard and memory will be whatever is supported out of the box. 570x + 32GB 3200 DDR4. Please let me know if i'm not up-to-date on the ram trends. (His old rig has a 16*4 2133 DDR3 which cant be reused in this age)
Memory: His current workhorse has a neat 1TB SSD raid 1 setup as his boot drive and a 2TB for mass storage. He would be retaining this Will there be any benefit of getting an NVMe here and move boot drive to NVMe?
GPU: I know for adobe suite, its all about the VRAM, would it make sense to go after the 1070Ti instead of the 2060Super /2070 with the GDDR6 8GB memory?
Will be retaining the Full tower case + Corsair TX 850W power supply from his work horse
Please share some thoughts and insights on what should we be looking at to pick the right parts to have this work for another decade
