Check out scanproaudio.info which has DAWbench benchmarks on it. Also I think thetechreport.com tested it with the same benchmark.

Pete at Scan was unimpressed and didn't recommend it. If you're seeing great prices now it's probably because there's the Zen 2 based Ryzen 3 and Threadripper 3 coming out in November (and there's of course the 3rd gen Ryzen that already came out).

Honestly, if I were you and needed that many cores I'd wait for Ryzen 3950x (16 cores) and Threadripper 3. Otherwise I'd probably still stick to the latest gen Ryzen / mobo.

MattiasNYC: Thanks for the reply. Do you know anything about Nuendo's ability to use that many cores?

I recall seeing that with the latest version some changes were made. Do a search for it though. Check here in the forum as well as on the actual product page. It might be listed as one of the new "features".
