I don’t know much about video editing, but my understanding is that photo editing, music production, and office apps will barely benefit from a more powerful GPU, whereas video editing, photo editing, and music production will certainly all benefit from a faster CPU.[doublepost=1557250166][/doublepost]
I’m getting my first IMac for extensive photo, music production , and some video editing with colour correction with the usual office apps. Is the Vega 48 from the 580 worth it or should I upgrade the 9600k to the 9900k
(Office apps might also benefit from a faster CPU if you're doing heavy-duty spreadsheet calculations, but most of the time you spend in office apps, any modern computer will be waiting for you, not the other way ’round).
In your case, it sounds like upgrading the 9600k to the 9900k is the way to go.
