2990WX or i9-7980XE

Postby Esperado on 08/21/2018, 1:44 pm

After pre ordering the RTX 2080Ti i fugerd i could use some new other parts as well...

i want to be able to game now and then, i know the 2990WX probably can do that too... but the 7980XE might be stronger there.
One thing i dont know is how much cpu that will be used in Maya, and when simulating cloth, fluids FractureFX etc...

so witch one? maybe i'm just out of control here and be better off with someting less...

Any thoughts?

7980XE is better choice since you may overclock it and get higher single core performance. 2990WX is more optimized for apps utilizing multi-cores.
