  • Prooocessor Upgrade?

    Currently using an ASRock Z370 Extreme4 socket 1151 with an i7-8700K with 32GB ram and NVIDIA GTX1070, using E9. Wondering whether I would see any appreciable benefit by replacing the processor with an i9-9900K. Any thoughts?

    You will get an approximate 18% speed improvement. Have you tried overclocking the 8700K on an AIO? If you get the 9900K, invest in a good AIO water cooler. This way you
    should be able to overclock it and get a decent all core overclock. You will need the P1.60 bios update to run the 9900k on your Extreme 4. I saw the chip at Newegg for $340.
    You have to decide if it is worth the $340 for an 18% boost. The Rocket Lake chips will also be another 18% increase in performance. That would entail a new motherboard and chip.
    5.3 GHz single core will be possible. With proper cooling, you should be able to get a very stable 5.0GHz all core overclock. These will have the new XE iGPU.

      Thanks for the reply.

      You will need the P1.60 bios update to run the 9900k on your Extreme 4. I saw the chip at Newegg for $340.
      Saw it at MicroCenter before Christmas for $299.99. ASRock says it requires the version 4.1 BIOS for the RO (RSG19) variant, 3.2 for the PO variant.

        Just load 4.1 bios and you should be covered.

          How much is your processor used when editing? I notice quite a difference when rendering with a 3d program like cinema 4d which uses 100% processor but not much at all with EDIUS as most of my editing is cutting, grading and done titles at hd, which the 8700 can cope with. I only really need it when rendering an effect like neat video and with edius x that's in the background so it it takes 2 mins or 3 mins a clip I don't mind.
