I wanted to ask my fellow colleagues about their opinion on Intel versus AMD and what to go with. I will not make this post very long but basically, I am looking at building a new system for myself. This system would be doing many jobs like being a file server, running PfSense, web design, along with the possible YouTube and or podcast set up, and of course everyday use.
I am really intrigued by AMD’s new architecture in their Ryzen chips. However, with saying that I do not know if I should go with something like a Ryzen 7 2700 X processor or look into the 1900 X ThreadRipper. I know the price for thread rippers are still high but I do not want to have to upgrade my system a few years down the road I want to buy enough horsepower now that way it will last me a while.
I would like to hear everyone’s thoughts.
