Need advice on Building new Encoding PC.

I'm looking at building a new PC to video encoding and I use Handbrake a lot and other video encoding software.

Here's my problem I'm running an ASUS Z390 i9 9900K with a GTX960 card.

I know that the Intel Arc cards are the fastest video encoding cards on the market from what I have on multiple websites and reviews.

My problem is my i9 9900K accroding to Intel when I called them said it doesn't support Hyper Encode and only 10th Gen and up CPU's support that and so that means I wouldn't get the full benefit of upgrading my system and they also said there's a strong chance that the Intel Arc cards won't work at all with the Z390 motherboards.

What I was wondering from a CPU stand point does it matter much if you get and Intel CPU over AMD as far as encoding speeds go.

I like the look of the Ryzen 9 9900X but if the AMD stuff is known to encode video slower then Intel then I would rather just buy another Intel based system.

So what I really want to know is what are your guys thoughts on AMD over Intel CPU's for encoding speeds.

Currently, AMD is faster at encoding than Intel.

Do you run an Intel card for encoding.

No, I don't do GPU encoding. No matter the speed, it can't match fine-tuned software encoders in quality

AMD might be the better route as looks like AMD soon be released Zen 5 has full 512bit like Intel and TestSpot article is showing some crazy handbrake gains and wonder if attributed Zen 5 with better optimizations and prediction for encoding AVX512 implementation support.

Would love to see if the Zen 5 is really that much impact on x265 encodes with AVX512 vs prior Zen 4.
