X299 or X399

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was curious which would be best for a multi task (Video, Music, & Photography Media Creation/Gaming/Streaming) compute? The AMD X399 or Intel X299. Both have Benifits in my eyes. X399 has lower cost processors, and X299 has thunderbolt 3 if u look for the right board. Main thing is I want the build to meet my needs. May even use a old case of mine even though io is outdated. But not hard to fix either.

Neither, use an i9 9900K + z390 build and stream through NVENC with a Turing based GPU.

rule 2: dont buy skylake X

 

 

if you use a adobe suite the 9900k is king and with streaming you can use Nvenc on RTX GPUs. 

 

 

X399 if you do heavy rendering based workloads or need a lot of threads or some video editing software that can utilize the surplus of cores.

Photography tends to prefer higher clocks over higher core counts.

 

Music is similar, but does like more cores than photography.

 

Video editing likes more higher clocked cores.

 

Most video rendering engines currently prefer gpu resources over cpu.

 

Rendering engines that are only cpu based do tend to do better with higher core counts rather than more powerful cores.

 

Without knowing actual usage patterns and software used, hard to suggest one platform over another.

 


80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

You can get Thunderbolt 3 on Z390 platform with the Gigabyte Z390 Designare. Not sure if any others have it but that one is a good board.

Do you need it now or can you wait another month or so??
