    I think of going with the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X with RX 5700 GPU on an Unraid server. The Ryzen 9 is:
    Ryzen 9 3900X 12C 24T 3.8 4.6 6 MB 64 MB 16+4+4 ? 105W $499
    It is only 105W TDP for 12 core 24 threads, and the new AMD card is superior to RTX 2070.
    What do you guys think about this?

    Isn’t the Ryzen 9 positioned as AMD’s top mainstream processor? Mac Pros are workstations requiring server class processors and ECC memory. In the unlikely chance that Apple would use AMD processors (there are good reasons why Apple wouldn’t), the 7nm Epyc or Threadripper would be more fitting for the modular MP.

    x86. Fake workstations.

    AMD mainstream desktop CPUs have normally also supported ECC for a very long time. AMD does not cripple them like Intel.

    On top of that Ryzen does not suffer from hyperthreading downgrade
