The usage is mostly video editing, gaming and others desktop usage. Is the xeon platinum will really use all the cores under windows 10 in real life. Someone tested it side by side to see if the xeon perform faster or not ?

You need to look at the ENTIRE system. Storage, memory, network and CPU. There is no 8076 Xeon that I can find reference. There is an 8176 ...

But a Xeon platinum is not an easy to do desktop solution. Limited choices in motherboards, registered ECC RAM, high power, limited cooling options. Not impossible but not trivial.

yes 8176...sorry.
The mobo i am looking is the supermicro
X11SPH-NCTF. for the price it include an LSI 12gbps controller and intel 10gb LAN.
the latest bios update allow ddr4 up to 2900.

i am running a simillar setup for a home server but using the xeon silver es using ddr4-2400 and the results are really good.

Now i need to build a desktop and would like to know if the i9-9900k can beat the platinum using the same memory speed.

at the end : to have the 10gb LAN and the LSI controller separately on a LGA-1151 mobo with a i9-9900k it will cost me more to compare with a 8176 engineering sample and a supermicro X11SPH-NCTF.

The xeon will be better for video editing, however HEDT like the 9980xe could give it a run for its money. For gaming the xeon will be pretty terrible so that's where the HEDT or 9900k shine.

The Xeon 8176 will be noticeably slower during everyday tasks and especially gaming. It will crush all when it comes to video encoding though. Its REALLY more of a server encoding CPU, than one you'd want to use for daily tasks.

As for using an ES processor don't, they are technically stolen property from Intel, many times they do not perform as expected, and we do not support them here.

If money is no object you'd be better off building a Ryzen Threadripper 2950 or 2990, they perform WAY better in all aspects overall and the 1% lows are nominal enough. You also might consider waiting and going with a Ryzen 3000 series processor.
