I’m struggling with which way to go, Intel or Ryzen. I use my computer for business which includes a lot of Word, Office, Photoshop, a lot of audio such as Audition or Pro Tools as well as numerous browsers open at the same time. And I use a upscale flight sim. I want to play an occasional game or two.
I’m leaning toward Ryzen 3700x because of multiple cores and threads. Intel has multiple cores and some cpus have multi threads but tend to be more expensive.
Above all I want speed. I’m tired of waiting for the computer because I’m asking a lot of it. I need things to happen quickly so I need a fast system.
I’m thinking the multi threads of a 3700x are useful in this regard. Am I right? I plan on using an ssd for the system and programs and another ssd for a scratch disk.
My question really is...is AMD the way for a really fast system or should I use intel. Or...will the 8 cores and 16 threads give me speed over an Intel such as an i7.
