I know it's frustrating. Modeling tools are still not 100% where we would all like them to be. You can file RFE's and wait for the fixes to get in or you can just buy DM and get on with your work.

Threadripper. AM4 socket is going to be supported for a long time, and if prices on future threadrippers drop as drastically as they did for the 19xx series you are going to have some great, easy upgrade options for the future.

There is no prodution ready Ai denoiser made with opencl. So it makes sense to implement this one. To develop you own takes a lpt of time or when you want to use tensorflow you will end up the same it has only cuda support.
You are correct that there is no OpenCL denoiser for production yet, however Tensorflow is now available free of Cuda https://rocm.github.io/index.html [rocm.github.io]
Given the current state of things I guess it's better to have a Cuda denoiser than no denoiser.
