After about 8 years of not doing any 3D graphics, I'm ready to pickup the hobby (and maybe career) again :-)
It's amazing how much Houdini has changed since I last used it… wow!
I'm looking to update my relic system. Right now I'm still rocking i7 920 :-) Just upgraded the video card to Quadro P2000. Noticing quite a difference with vellum and fluids (OpenCL) although not as much as I had hoped for.
CPU/MB/RAM is of course the next logical update. I can't afford Threadripper 2950x right now, but there's a sale for Threadripper 1950x that brings it to $100 over i9-9900K.
What in your opinion is a better choice for Houdini: AMD Threadripper 1950x or i9-9900K? Or is i9-9900K not worth it and should I just get the good old i7-8700K (6 cores, 12 hyperthreads) or the newer i7-9700K (8 cores / 8 hyperthreads)?
Please don't suggest anything more expensive (my max CPU price is $750Cnd) due to budget constraints :-)
