In my country is price for first generation threadripper really very very low now, model 1900x (I know only 8 cores blabla, but this platform TR4 have better good future-proof)
and lowest model first generation threadripper is now for very low price, lower than price Ryzen2700x.
In my eyes/build what I want buy - TR4 vs AM4:
all components what I want will be in both configuration TR4 vs AM4 same, only two items will be other and one item have platform tr4 more. And this is why I created conclusion, that I build TR4 build and not AM4 build.
motherboard (for TR4 vs AM4, will be cost around twice more money)
ram (for TR4 will cost 4xram around 1,5 price of ram for AM4)
cpu cooler (this have only platform tr4, with am4 come cooler in cpu box)
These are only two components different + one item more - for platform TR4 versus AM4.
And this is not very big difference, in price, for better future-proof of platform TR4 with 64 pcie lanes. :-)
Now I only need little help with pc case, from first day when I start prepared my build, I want buy next generation Phanteks Evolv X. This pc case I selected before I created result if tr4 or am4.
Phanteks released this case. And now I only need know, If board Asus Zenith will fit into this pc case, or not.
On internet I found many review on previous generation "non-x" version Phanteks Evolv and Asus Zenith.
But zero information about new "x" version Phanteks Evolv X and Asus Zenith? this combination I cannot found.
my planned pc build for 2019: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/LpdnJ8
and in future, when will have in my country newer generation threadripper discount (as have now 1900x discount), so I plan change cpu 1900x for better (16 or 32 cores)
