I was going to get an x299+i9 hackintosh because I have to use mac for my work, but in light of the new bug should I risk the headaches of AMD+OS X with a threadripper build?

Just get vmware and run OSX in it.
If you run it on bare metal on a threadripper it will have a shitload of bugs.
Some guys make it work with a ton of workarounds but it's terrible, just use the biggest strength of that architecture and make a VM instead, that shit was made to run a shitload of things in parallel.

VMware will not run osx on non apple hardware.

Intel also has ME exploit so fuck that.

Get a threadripper and use QEMU or KVM for OSX.

literally 2 year old news shows you can and I even saw it running myself.

I need GPU acceleration too though

I didn't want the headaches of amd+mac even though threadripper is much better than an i9 for my use case, but if this shit is going to cost me performance anyway might as well get a better CPU out of it at the same price.

I have to decide in a few days due to tax reasons unfortunately

x299 also works fine apparently, since it's similar to the new mac pro. I'll also get 10g ethernet out of it.

just quit your job?

no idea about threadripper but ryzen plays really nice with macOS, might be worth a try

There is a significant performance drop though, might as well be using patched intel microdode

not really, the 1700 scores consistently in the 1400s for multicore and 140s for single core in cinebench
