Hello,



i have a i7700k cpu I’m wanting to upgrade my cpu due to the line of work I do 4K editing.



My options at this point are i9900k or the new upcoming Ryzen Chip in which I will need to wait for.



ive never had AMD only ever intel. What would you guys do in this position?



Cheers

I've gone with an i9-9900k now that they've come down to $475 at NewEgg. But the Threadripper 2950X or 2990WX are also a great considerations. Be sure to also use a fast SSD for both the program and a separate scratch disk SSD (properly set up in your software -- I use Adobe). Preferrably, both M.2 NVMe.
 
Threadripper 2950X is $585....not too terribly much more than the 9900K, but, twice the core and thread count...

If you want/need more cores for content creation, the 2950X should merit serious consideration, IMO....otherwise, I'd probably go 2700X.
