9900K vs 7820x vs 2950x for video editing 4k and more?

9900k is the fastest but supports only 64gb ram,
2950x has 16 cores (and relatively budget friendly compared to intel's 16 core) but the editing software world is not programmed well enough to utilize its power.
7820x is a little slower and older than 9900k but supports 128gb ram and more lanes.

I do mostly premiere, after effects, avid media composer,
but also resolve, fcpx, c4d and some blender.
What should I choose for my next CPU?

p.s. the rest of the pc will be based on powerful parts like ssd's, 64gb-128gb ram and so, and probably 1080ti (p4000 will be better for 3d but most of my work is all-around)

I'm not sure how urgently you need to upgrade your system but getting a hold of a 9900k will not be easy given the processor shortage hitting Intel right now. They will more than likely be very expensive and aren't exactly optimized for rendering the way the HEDT processors are. For your use case, the 2950x seems like the no-brainer.

Yeah I saw an article about that this morning. It's since been removed so who knows if it was real or not.

I'm not too worried about stock. Its all marketing tricks to make you want it more... lets imagine that stock is not the issue but rather productivity. how smart it is to buy a cpu like 2950x that in theory is twice as powerful but in fact less productive than 9900k? and on the other hand 9900k no 128gb support kind of makes it less attractive for future-proof.
