I7 or I9?

Thank you all for sharing your opinions with me and others :) 

I'll go for the I9 7900X my wallet will scream at me for a few months but I know It'll be a great upgrade in the end.

This thing will be overclocked for sure, let's see where I can push it.

At stock? Yes. If you overclock the 7900X you can hit 2700-2800cb, which is on par with a 4GHz 1920X

Really? Then you clearly know this:

Some of that stuff loves high single-threaded with others taking advantage of multi-threading.  Skylake-X would fill both needs nicely.  :D

Which is why the 1950X isn't a very good option for the OP.

I did not know this at the time of my original post, which is why I asked if he was 100% sure more cores were what he needed.

 

@XYOUNEED sorry for clogging the thread but some people just can't resist the urge to insult others when they feel their purchase decision is being criticized.

I was prepared for this, np

It's not always bad to hear different opinions, that's why I am asking on a forum :) Despite, I am really interested in that specific mobo.

Threadripper is not faster if you also need single core performance and as @done12many2 already said, some of the programs that @XYOUNEED uses are single threaded and some are multi threaded. The i9 strikes a good balance between single and multi core performance, so it's the best option IMO.

Leaning more towards the I9-7900X. I also think it is indeed a good balance right now.

Do the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X. It has a better price per performance ratio. And it is much, much faster. I know you won't get the motherboard you wanted in the first place, But there is lots of X399 Motherboards to look at. Good luck at your next computer!

Yeah, like I've said my interest go towards the rampage :) I've been using one for 4years now, I like the rampage extreme line up alot. So ryzen or threadripper are a no go for me neither am I interested in them right now.

I quickly did research on single core scores. And the i9 is good for the OP.

Here's some of my 3D work, it still needs many tweaks.

So I am happy to invest in some hardware to make the process way faster  :) 

 

I have a 3930K currently so it's going to be a big difference :P

Good choice. You'll be happy! I'm happy with my 7820X as are many others. The performance is unparalleled core for core. I'm going to see reviews of the Apex and might join onboard pending reviews go well. The MSI Carbon is good but I've always eyed the Apex. ?
