CPU Recs for 3D Workstation.... Duel 2080ti, 2 x 970pro NVM 1TB drives and 128gb memory .....

 Share

I want to start by saying I am not a gamer, I am a 3d artist.  I use c4d with GPU rendering and adobe after effects. 

I'm a professional that would love to buy quadros and xeons but that's not realistic for me,

So I bought 2 x  GTX 2080ti for the GPU rendering in Red Shift 

Adobe AE loves RAM so while I have 64gb now, and i'd like to move up to 128gb. 

After effects also love singles core speed. Multi core is a bonus if i ever do physical rendering. 

Most importantly I'm looking for a solution with no PCIe bottlenecks and getting maximum CPU power.

 

I know threadripper is an option but I question the stability based on some friends that run this build, and it also draws a lot of power.

I've always been a intel fan but i don't think the 9900k is going to have enough PCIe lanes (It advertises 44 but i don't think that's true)  and the 128 GB or ram sounds sketchy aswell   ...... And the choice between Basin Falls refresh vs a Entry level Xeon is a bit perplexing..

Does anyone have some recommendations or insight?

9900K is 40 lanes and 64GB RAM. 

 

You're looking at Intel X lines, depending on your budget get the one(s) that fit.  *shrug*

you both mean 9900x not k right?

x has 44lanes k has 16lanes

 

think the ram and lanes are mobo variants you prollly need to look up mobo specs

The 9900K platform supports up to 40 PCI lanes.  16 for the CPU, 24 from the PCH.

If you want just CPU PCI lanes, then correct it's limited to 16.

but that is mobo chipset variant also and how each model is wired too

plus those 24lanes are connected to dmi which is pcie 4x speed, which would be a bottleneck he is doesnt want

 

so i do think he is talking about "x" version plus he stated 44lanes

If he's talking the X version, then I don't understand his doubting of it's PCI lanes and memory specs.  It's what he needs if he won't go Threadripper.

because how mobos are wired at certain models

he did state 44 lanes and wants nvme drives

 

plus mainstream is limited to 64gb ram for now and he states 128gb
