Has anyone had any experience using MediaShout 7 on a PC with an AMD Ryzen CPU? I'm planning to build a new PC soon and have been considering getting a Ryzen 3600 or an Intel 9700K. Does MediaShout benefit at all from the increased thread count in the Ryzen, or would the higher clock speed on the Intel be more beneficial?

Hi Aaron,
Great timing as I just finished up my build last week.
I'm using a Asus ROG Strix x470-f gaming motherboard and AMD Ryzen 7 3800X 8-Core Processor, 3900 Mhz, 8 Core(s), 16 Logical Processor(s).
My old machine was an I5. I really can't tell too much difference here at home between the two other than a very fast load time. That may be due to the M.2 drive too.
I'm very happy with the system and saved a few $$ on the AMD.
Hope that helps some?

We are running a AMD R2600 with 16GB RAM, a R570 8GB video card, SSD boot drive and a tradition HDD. No hiccups because of overtaxed processing hardware.

However, we use two networked computers: one in the front office (to build presentations,Dell Prebuilt with Intel and Nvidia GTX 1050) and the Ryzen machine to present from the A/V booth. The networked drive is a traditional harddrive and because of that, I believe that opening and saving as well as accessing the the lyric library is slowed down a bit.

I need to play around about saving and working off the local SSD to see if there are improvements in speed.

Bottom line? Ryzen 3600 will hand what Mediashout can throw at it and then some. IMO, save a few bucks on the processor and use it to more/faster RAM or SSD.
