Looks like Ryzen 3rd gen is the 'go to'

Without AMD we would still be on 4c/8t on mainstream CPUs...
True, but while AMD was trying to bankrupt itself with Bulldozer, Intel gave us 8 generations of real CPU's. You could say AMD were the ones who (indirectly) allowed Intel to stagnate.
I am definitely awaiting the next Threadrippers though =). My old Xeon is getting crusty...

Just upgraded to the 3700x, so happy to have moved on from QSV transcodes to straight CPU set at slow with an 18 CRF. It just tears through it when remote users start something up...

Looks like the Ryzen 3950X is going to pack some serious power. How do you think it will compare to the first and second gen TR?
Here you go. Looks to be a big improvement over the TR that I have.
Better than gen 2 TR, also

Not too bad. With CPU, probably around $1700
A little rich for me, but I may consider a 3900x build instead of TR.
Although I also distinctly remember this:
Anyone thinking of getting a Threadripper.....DON'T! It's an absolute nightmare! So many problems. It's a steady stream of problems.
But that was because you were on the cutting edge.
I only use a CPU since I'm using Linux/Docker. I've considered adding hardware, but I'd rather not bother if I can do it all with CPU. I have no 4K media yet, but I'm guessing I will soon now that I finally have a 4K set.
Seems that these new Ryzen 9 could handle 4K transcodes? How much have you really pushed it? I'd probably only ever have 1 or 2 transcodes at a time.
