Can you tell me why u are advising me against buying a F CPU for adobe? Is it because it lacks IGPU? I already have a new nvidia GTX 1050 GPU which will support 9400FIf you do Adobe stuff, don't consider -f chips. That said, any 9th-gen chip will do the trick depending on your budget. Thing is, from the point of view of bang for buck, right now nothing beats a Ryzen on a B450 or X470 chipset.
I understand InvalidError's points, they do have merits, but while BIOS flashing could be a dangerous endeavor 10 years ago it is now rather safe on most mid-range and better motherboards, and is actually considered rather trivial today.
As for the socket stuff, both CPU makers have been using the same sockets for years. But while Intel artificially limits compatibility, AMD makes it up to the user - if you'd rather get a same generation chipset for your CPU, you can; if you'd rather save money, with AMD you can too.
