I trying to determine what components to choose for a AMD Threadripper multi content creation workstation and its proving difficult to do the one size best fits all. Both for After effects, Premier and others
Do I really need the 3970x processor or would the 24 core 3960x do fine.
Is it better to get the
NVidaia Quadro RTX 4000 GPU or is a
*3XS* EVGA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti BLOWER better?
Is a ASUS TRX40 Prime Pro or ASUS TRX40 ROG Strix what I should stick to or would the likes of the
ASROC TRx40 Taichi or Creator
Gigabyte TRX40 Designare
or MSI TRX40 Creator
The way to go not just on their features but things like brand reliability, bios, ease of use, durability etc
The likes of Scan UK and PC specialist and others seem to be pushing the ASUS motherboards but the Gigabyte, MSI and AS Roc appear to be good as well feature wise and inbetween the price or the strix and ASUS Zeneth extreme and which GPU?
