Hey guys i am but confuse in buying new system. I am a visual effects artist and currently i am working on software such The Foundry Nuke, Blackmagic Fusion, After Effects etc. which demands much of working on 2k and 4k files.
Which processor you guys think should be best for my purpose?
I am in india so rates are as follows

Threadripper 1920x = 38K apporx + 25k for board.
8700K = 38K + 12-15k board
9900k= 48k + 12-15k board.

I’d go with the TR, 4 more cores is good. Do you have a GPU though because you need one for the 1920X
My current system is

Intel 7700K paired with rx 580 8gb.
32GB RAM.
LG 4K-UHD 27UD68P

recently my editing on mostly 4k footages has gone high. So i am getting so much lag specially when files gets heavy with editing graphics. So i am planning to update CPU and.

one more thing am i currently bottlenecking GPU? could that be a reason for lag or its time to update both CPU and GPU?

Bring up task manager, start working and see what your usage is.

Well i have checked, and at 100% of all USED cores in 4k footage playback in software was previewing at 12.2 fps. but GPU usage was only 8-10% so i guess i need to get more cores-thread cpu? right? and keep the same GPU?
