Hi all… I realise this has been discussed elsewhere in the forums but I never seem to get a conclusive answer. Maybe that’s because there isn’t one, but here goes anyway:
I am pricing up a new PC build but I am really stuck on which CPU to go with.
I can afford (just about) a build that features either a Threadripper 1950x or Core i9 7920X.
Obviously the TR is far better value for money and you get more cores but crucially has anyone any advice on how effective all the power of these CPUs translate to lighting build times?
Is it worth getting more cores with the TR or do Intel processors still get a boost with lighting builds because of the Embree optimisation. Building lighting is the bottleneck I am hoping to resolve and get a definitive answer by people who build lighting a lot (you guys).
Thanks in advance for any info or suggestions.
