Post subject:  AMD Rysen worth it

Currently i am running a core i5 4670k. I am thinking on upgrading to the ryzen anyone tried the 8 core with ht. Sixteen cores does sound good. I noticed that buzz can only handle 12. Does buzz include ht cores as real ones or is it only real ones. Never had hyper threading to try

I generally go with faster core speed then # of cores, but I guess it matters how you use Buzz.

Buzz seems to only use real cores.

Did not know that so an i7 has no benefit in buzz over the i5 other than clock speed.

I'd go by passmark benchmark score more than anything... but yes, Buzz tends to benefit from fewer faster cores over many slower cores. I run AMD 1090T on my workstation right now, it has high clock speed and performs great.

Synthphase is right. Per-core performance is what you want. I don't know how Ryzen performs compared to my semi-old i7 because modern benchmark sites leave out the single most important thing for audio guys like us to know: The IEEE float 32-bit performance that one core can do.

Generally benchmarks should be taken with a grain of salt compared to running an actual audio app on the given CPU.

Think ill buy a new cooler for my i5 and overclock it. I have had it up 4.4 before but the cooler was not up to the job so clocked it back.

I thought Buzz only populated as many cores available as you have installed in your system. Is that true there is a limit to 12 cores in Buzz? If so it will affect my future CPU purchasing decisions.

Noticed that microsoft have announced. Users will now be able to run Windows 10 Pro for Workstation on machines with up to four CPUs -- today's limit of two -- and add memory up to 6TB and the Refs file system Actually a reason to upgrade from 7

What limit? I have 8 logical cores here, and Windows 7 and 10 are both capable of seeing all of them. It's Buzz that has a limit of 12 cores:

And typically the real problem will be that one plugin cannot be distributed across several cores, so the per-core performance is still very important for audio work.

Oh well i will just buy a D-Wave instead :D. Wonder if anyone has tried to make music with a d-wave.

D-Wavetable?
