I looking at building a workstation based on an i9-10900X processor for some simulation code that needs both high single threaded CPU performance and memory bandwidth (4+ memory channels) with at least 8 cores. Fast memory might help with the simulations I am planning. Some of the simulation codes were likely compiled with Intel's MKL.
Does anyone have any motherboard recommendations for the i9-10900X?
Regardless of the Intel optimized code, can you test your simulation on one of the Ryzen based cloud platforms linked here:https://www.amd.com/en/processors/epyc-for-cloud
Unless your code is specifically using AVX-512, Ryzen might offer similar or better performance than Intel while consuming lower power.
