    i9 10900X vs i9 10920X - Advice on new computer build making a choice

    Been accumalting the parts - its been a problem getting compnents from the dealer I trust.  So I am wondering for video editing etc. will two more cores make a difference? 

    From what I read MC is mostly single threaded?  Is that true?  From what I read speed is more important than cores - is that still relevant?

    i910900X is 3.7 gz

    i9 10920X is 3.5 gz

    So  wondering if there would be big difference the two.  I already have the procesor i9 10900X ordered but I can change it should i need to - I went with that one becasue it has higher gz speed.  But maybe 2ghz is not really that much higher.  I do plan plan to overclock slightly

     

    thank you

    Larry

    The clock speed (3,5 GHz; 3,7 GHz) is just the base clock. Like all current CPU this one has also boost setting.

    Here an overview with the boost clock of Cascade Lake X:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cascade_Lake_(microarchitecture)#Cascade_Lake-X_(Enthusiast)

     

    If you are really interested in, you find a lot of articles online about boosting (power limits, PL1, PL2, tau, problems, limits etc.).

    But in normal use the clock speed will be between the base and the boost clock. The clock depends on the settings and the conditions. If you have a good cooling solution (CPU, mainboard VRM) and modify some power settings the CPU will run at boost speed.

    Go with more cores. 10 to 12 cores is a 20% increase. 3.5 to 3.7 is less than 7% increase.

    Dom called that one correctly. While MC is not really multi-threaded in general, the one place it is mult-threaded is when doing transcodes and consolidates. So if you have to transcode media to DNxHR, this is the better solution. And I think that  (eventually) we'll see MC taking more advantage of multi-threaded processes (and I hope a lot more GPU processing).
