[D] What CPUs to use for Deep Learning tasks
Hey, so GF is getting into deep learning and is going to build a PC so she can build, train, and run nets at home. Right now I’m having a hard time helping her decide between an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 and an Intel Core i5 9600k.
I have the option to get a 9600k for $180 even. The 3600 will cost $200 + tax.
Both will be paired with a 2060 Super or 2070 Super + 16 GB DDR4 3600 CL17.
I don’t have as much DL experience I’m not well informed enough to make this decision alone. I know the CPU will mainly be used for preprocessing tasks. I read somewhere that numpy operations are faster on intel processors. Suggestions?
