If you’re looking for a new CPU and you do a lot of content creating, then we say to go with the Threadripper. Now if you are more geared toward gaming, then yes Intel’s Core i9-7900x will serve you better. Also, if you are set on getting a 16 or 18 core processor we recommend the Threadripper 1950x due to the $1,000 less price tag then the i9 which won’t give you a big enough increase to justify $2,000.
