How is that threadripper doing @Doofus?

It's working very well. When transcoding playback, it performs without a hitch. I keep meaning to test how many it can handle at once. But haven't, yet.

So I found a ryzen 1700x (8 core 16 thread) CPU, mobo, and 16 GB RAM for $490. I could go that reverse route pretty easy.

Yea, I am waiting for gen2 of the ryzen to come out. If they are a huge step forward I may buy that one, if they are not then I will likely be upgrading to the 1700. I am leaning away from Intel and quicksync. Especially now that the new vulnerability has been identified in all Intel CPUs going back 10 years...

That's interesting. A 30% hit in performance, it pretty horrendous. So far, my i7 7700K performs, admirably.
