It is suggested that the !7-9700K is perfectly suited to HQPlayer 4 with EC modulators, with no overclocking for DSD 256. Note that the most recent update to HQP 4 did reduce the resources required to run it.
my bad... i have i7 7700k.
i was looking at the new 9700 and that sticked in the post

That makes sense! Good to keep the info here as accurate as possible as this stuff gets kind of complex, at least for me!

wish to know what modulators+algorithm he choose.
anyway i think the new ryzen 7 is a very strong and cheap platform to support hqplayer.

This page has a few posts about AMD processors
HQ Player - Page 644 - Software - Audiophile Style

There is a guy running a 3700x, but he had to do some tweaks to get it working. There are very few people running AMD's with hqp4, and it seems you have to go to the really high end AMD's to get enough performance for the ec mods.

There are a lot more people running intel at DSD256 with hqp4 and ec modulators. An i7-9700k will do it without overclocking
or tweaking pc or hqp4, as barrows said.

So safer route is Intel, and based on US pricing, AMD only saves around 10% for 3700x vs 9700k.

With Daphile I get DSD256 using i7-8550U. HQPlayer is lighter than Daphile.

hqp4 with the new ec modulators are VERY processor intensive. PCs that could do dsd512 with hqp3 can't do hqp4 at dsd256 ec

signalyst actually recommends the latest i9
