If anyone can say how Ryzen is for heat. I want to build a small PC with either a 7700k or a Ryzen, but I'm afraid Ryzen will be too hot (I want to keep it as quiet and small as possible.)

The Scan article on CPUs for audio does indeed recommend Intel - and an i7 4790K for "best bang for buck".

There's a few things to be said about the idea of "the best" ... and how that relates to CPUs (and lots of other things ... digital cameras spring to mind).

You can keep adding extra cash and getting higher spec - but is the extra spec actually relevant to your end purpose?

afaik processor speed (GHz) is relevant, but not necessarily number of cores ... given that in an i7 you're getting at least 4 cores anyway. 6 or 8 might be nice to have, especially if you also do video which might be able to leverage those extra cores. But the gains per $ taper off rapidly above a certain point for the vast majority of audio users.

The requirements of audio are not necessarily CPU and GPU grunt (unlike video) - but more a balance between power and a system where all parts work well together.

That is, for most people's purposes, simply buying the top CPU will solve nothing, and may well be a step backwards. That's because real-time audio recording has very particular requirements ... the first of those being maintaining a constant absolutely unstoppable flow of relatively lightweight data. With zero hiccups.


This excellent video has become a bit of a classic (it's only a year old tho!) and it explains all of this :

He said loading the OS from a PCIe SSD increased CPU interupts?

Is it therefor a bad idea to buy PCIe SSDs? m.2?

Or maybe an m.2 NVMe is good for samples, but use a vanila SATA 3 SSD for the OS?

I'm wondering if I should build a computer that has PCIe SSDs or not.

No. He said that the PCIe SSD he installed increased CPU interrupts. Which one? I don't know.

Ok, so I won't *avoid* buying a Samsung EVO etc. for that sake.

M.2 pci connected SSD's are a good 3x faster than SATA connected SSD's.
400-500 MB/s read/write speeds in the average SATA SSD.
1200-1500 MB/s in the M.2

If someone was claiming increased CPU interrupts from an M.2 vs. a SATA connection, something else was the root cause!

He just gave an example that devices/drivers can affect real time performance, not saying that PCIE SSDs are bad.

At the end of the video he mentioned BIOS, it is also an important part since modern CPUs have a lot of power saving features like C-states, Speedsteps and so on, these features can affect real time performances as well. Also, take a look to find the HPET option in the BIOS menu.
