I'm putting a plan together to build a new machine for my den. 4K gaming, VM's for Adobe, Autocad, SQL Server 2017 Dev/Power BI I record screencasts too.
Thinking of going for the AMD thread-ripper 12 cores 24 threads 4Ghz. 32GB DDR4 but can grow to 128GB (if memory prices come back down!)

Much more affordable than Intel based xenon workstations :-)
The enthusiast CPU's are looking more and more like the ones in the datacentre. All I need now is for SSD's to become more affordable :-)
Wondering how SQL Server & Power BI runs on Thread-ripper - has anyone tried it?
Best

Hmm.... everything I've seen says that threadrippers are performing pretty much on par with intel core for core and are certainly more affordable. The biggest drawback seems to be heat and power use which probably isn't a huge deal for a home workstation.

Done a little more research - TDP is crazily high - understandable in a way - having 2 cpus stuck together will generate lots of waste heat even when run at stock speeds - shame this heat can't easily be recycled.
