If you can get the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X for only USD $799 … yes! in my opinion. The price/performance ratio is truly astounding!
Taken from Engadget … In Zen 3, AMD has essentially merged the CCX and CCD, grouping chips in clusters of 8 cores all sharing a massive 32MB of L3 cache memory. This, along with a host of other smaller improvements, should help to keep data flowing through the CPU without hiccups or interruptions.
Our testing suggests it worked, with the flagship 16-core 5950X delivering the fastest single AND multicore scores we’ve seen in Cinebench (outside of workstation-grade chips). Impressively, it does so without a major jump in power consumption. However, our tests also showed that in most media applications, there are diminishing returns for higher CPU power. Few applications will scale all the way to 16 cores, and in many cases, including Adobe and Davinci Resolve, a powerful GPU can make a bigger difference these days. If you’re looking to build the most powerful system you can, the $799 5950X is certainly a chip to consider
