Hi, I'm not the best to answer but it interested me too. (How much do you want to fps? 60?)
i9 9900k are 16lanes processor, you can go x8/x8 but you nerfed your GPUs (don't know how much) but it's powerfull processor.
You can look series X for more lane (series 10 comming soon)
Ram for i9 9900k are dual channel
For GPUs i don't know if QuadroRTX 4000 (2034cc/8G) are best (for Resolume / sync) than RTX 2080s (3072cc/8G) or 2080Ti (4352cc /11G)
And can output (3)4x 4k per GPU? in x8?
And for the bandwidth of the ssd how much you need to read 7x 4k? I think good m.2 are minimum, maybe 3, one systeme and 2 for alternate media, maybe more? (PCI 4.0? and care M.2 consumes PCI lane too)
Or better way are 2 Computer 4x4k and sync?
Maybe someone with a big Resolume can answer?
I could go with an i9 9900X with 44 PCI lanes or with a AMD TR 2920X with 64, no problem on that.
I think for the playing bandwith maybe a raid 0 of 3 SSDs i enough, but if not, the MB for AMD X399 Can have 3 M2 on and has a PCI expansion for 4 M2 more, so those in RAID 0 can have pretty fast Read speeds...
(i have already this machine as my main workstation/mediaserver and it's a beast (2x M2 Raid0 1Tb, 2x SSD Raid 0 2Tb, 1 M2 for system, 32 Gb RAM quad channel (4x8GB sticks))
I prefer always Quadro series for the Sync2 and better syncing of different cards outputs (thing that any GTX nor RTX does).
Thanks, i'll keep investigating the best option.
