Hi Guys,

Looking to upgrade and can't decide between these two. I'll be working in Premiere and After Effects but Premiere predominantly. I need something fast for 4k multi-cam projects that are also effects intensive. Is the AMD TR that much better and also a good idea for future proofing? Knowing that the i9 9900k only takes up to 64GB of RAM. I've read a lot of mixed reviews about the two so far, looking for some solid points to help me decide. Some are saying Adobe programs aren't designed to utilise all 16 cores yet, others are saying the opposite. Has anyone used either of the two?

Currently premier uses some Intel GPU export boost. Hardwarecanucks did a video on it. Titled why I switched back to Intel. Basically if you have integrated graphics on your Intel chip and have a gpu installed. It like uses your cpu, igpu, and GPU to export making it go alot faster. Also premier prefers less cores wity higher core clocks vs slower clocks and higher multithreaded performance.
