I’m thinking about building a rig for modeling/sculpting/animation/etc. I also do some gaming, nothing to crazy (Think TF2). I have been thinking either Intel’s i7-7700k or an Intel Xeon at around the same price (I haven’t chosen the model yet). With the Xeon I can get more cores and threads, but it doesn’t have great clock speed. There is also the Ryzen 7 700, which has more cores and threads then the i7, but the i7 beats the Ryzen with single core speed.
In the past I have always gone with a CPU form the Intel Core series. Now I’ve been doing a lot less gaming and a lot more work with 3D software, and am wondering if something like a Ryzen would give better Rendering without sacrificing my gaming.
Sorry for blabbing on and on.
Thanks for your time!
