    Default Doubt... i9 7980x or Ryzen Threadripper 1950x

    This end of year or first quarter of the next one, I'll renew / upgrade my PC (most likely), but I am in doubt:
    Whether to continue with Intel I have been a user for many years (since 1997 and my first Pentium MMX 233) and go for i9 7980x or move to AMD (Last time I've used an AMD was in 1995, model Am486 DX4-100), and go with Threadripper 1950x.
    It should be noted that I use the PC for aero photogrammetry and LIDAR processing with multithreaded programs (AgiSoft Photoscan Pro, Pix4D Mapper Pro, ERDAS Imagine...).

    Always look beyond the limits...

    Go with what will suit your needs of course and that looks to be a setup capable of heavily loaded multi-threaded computing.
    I'd have to give the nod to the TR 1950X for that reason alone since the TR's should be capable of pulling off the workload you have in mind like their Ryzen siblings. Just be sure the board is equally capable and of good quality, get some RAM along those same lines and you should be golden until the next upgrade cycle.

    I thought just the same, so the upgrade for the next 3-4 years probably should be like this:
    1. CPU TR 1950x https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Threadrip...keywords=1950x
    2. MB: GB X399 AORUS Gaming 7 or MSI X399 GAMING PRO CARBON AC (https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard...ng-7-rev-10#kf or https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/X399...eature-section)
    3. 128GB RAM 2400 - 2666MhZ G.Skill F4-2400C15Q-64GFX (http://gskill.com/en/product/f4-2400c15q-64gfx) or Vengeance LED (VENGEANCE® LED 32GB (2 x 16G DDR4 DRAM 2666MHz C16 Memory Kit - White LED (CMU32GX4M2A2666C16))
    4. 2x GTX 1080 Ti AORUS GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti Waterforce WB Xtreme Edition 11G (https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Ca...USX-WB-11GD#kf)

    There are 4 combination prices (from AMAZON):
    1. All Giga + RAM G.Skill 4386.97 USD
    2. All Giga + RAM Corsair Vengeance 3694.95 USD
    3. MB MSI +GPU Giga + RAM G.Skill 4376.97 USD
    4. MB MSI + GPU GIGA + RAM Corsair Vengeance 3684.95 USD

    Probably will be between the option 2 and 4, as those are US prices, to bring it to Peru would be approx 30% more (shipping + taxes).

    Choosing the option 2 (all Giga + 128GB RAM Vengeance LED) the Grand Total (Shipping and Taxes included) 5299.27 USD (AMAZON)

    I'm a huge Ryzen fan currently based on the end experience alone and I'm also a big fan of Aorus for Ryzen motherboards. I'm worried the new Intel chips are going to have heat problems because I haven't heard word that they decided to solder the lids. The 7700k was having some weird heat spike issues, but it was pretty rare and didn't seem to kill chips definitively. On the other hand, the newest release seems incredibly rushed and with the high core count, heat could be an issue on release. Time will tell though.

    Most likely they won't solder the lids being they are still trying to stay cheap while charging way more for their chips than AMD, not to mention get something competitve in the market ASAP.
    I'll admit anything is possible but I seriously doubt you'll see any real changes there.

    Since Sandy Bridge INTEL does not soldering the lids any more. Beside to pay more than 1000 bucks for 2 more cores, no way.

    Here is a thought if the programs you use find multithreading advantageous

    Intel Xeon Processor E5-2697 v4 ES CPU 2.2GHz 18-Core QH26 - X99 C612 LGA 2011-3 | eBay

    A pair of these in a supermicro x10Dai or Asus z10pe-d8 ws (d16 if you need more ram) These workstation boards have similar features to what we are used to... pcie x16 x 3 or 4 for example they use sata have m2 etc

    Sure they are ES but they do 2.6 fully loaded. Think about that 72 threads @ 2.6. Would that be the same as 32 @ 5.85 ?? I have no idea but sounds powerful to me

    Edit: Probably gonna be EATX though. With the imminent move to Gold and Platinum Xeons there could be ES versions of those around when you are building. Probably more expensive but equally current v4's may be available for less

    Between the two, I would go for the ThreadRipper parts. (Cost factors and excellent multi threaded performance)

    That said, I just traded four nice AMD GPUs for an i9-7900X setup. (CPU, MSI board, and 32GB RAM)

    Since it did not mean any cash outlay, I jumped on the deal fast.
    If I had been forced to actually buy it all, it would have been Threadripper for sure.
