If you going to spend $1500 on CPU then do it right.
TR4 1950x same price for extra 6 core/12 threads.

Yeah, I know TR 1950x is awesome, but the software i'm using (Houdini) is single-threaded and 7900x is faster single-thread wise

SideFX flagship Houdini use multithread.

"Houdini has refined the dynamics framework and crystallized the smoke/pyro simulation pipeline to make for a very robust and phenomenally fast workflow to create  multithreaded and GPU-assisted grid-based volume simulations and rendering."
