I do online Youtube maths tutorials which I record with OBS at 900p 60 fps (to capture part of my screen in 16:9 ratio) and I use Vegas Pro 15 to edit and and upscale to 1080p 60fps. I find with my Intel i7 4790 (which is still a powerful CPU), that rendering/exporting takes ages, like my longer exam revision videos take hours and hours.
I was dead set on purchasing Intel i9 9900k (8 core 16 thread) until AMD recently announced 3950x Ryzen (16 core 32 thread) for a very competitive price and I would like to ask you guys if you think the 16 core CPU would be a dramatic improvement over the i9?
I know some video editing suits prefer Intel over AMD for better performance so wondering if that is the case with Vegas Pro?
I will be buying nVidia RTX 2070 Super and 64gb of 3200mhz DDR4 ram which should compliment the CPU.
However I also do PC gaming which has traditionally very much favoured Intel CPUs.
Appreciate you thoughts on which CPU would be better for Vegas Pro and if it's worth stretching to the AMD.
