Unless you need the extra cores/threads, the 7820X is the sweet spot in Intel's i9 lineup. Obviously, Threadripper is the other shoe to drop. TR will likely have lower clock and thus single thread for the lower core models, but likely more performance/$. The higher core parts will be very interesting, if they clock up to ~4.0 GHz, they will be monsters. Considering $1000 got you an octocore Intel for the previous gen, this is a good price, but until TR drops it is a questionable buy.

More cores at higher clock speeds means faster rendering to me. Waiting to see what's up with Threadripper, but I'm thoroughly enjoying this dick waving contest.

The only reason I posted was this was the first I9 I had seen on sale AND its fun to watch all the tech-wieners kvetching about specs.

This and threadripper are multimedia junkies dream. That is if there is enough bandwidth for all the cores to run efficiently...?
