I agree the Threadrippers are fantastic, but having to put them into gaming mode (or so I read) to better play games makes them way to much over kill for my needs.
Some minor occasional game streaming while playing, video and photo editing (fair amount) and odds and ends.
This has me going to the 9900k. Why you scream at me? Because ever since I retired my 965 black edition, I’ve been with Intel, and the Ryzen stuff (while great stuff) just doesn’t tilt my pinball machine the right way.
