Questionabout $2k to $2.5k to spend on a dev machine this year, need CPU recommends Pin

I'll be running a machine with multiple VMs so I want cores to spare.

8 cores is more than enough. 4 is about minimum.

I'll need the various VM bells and whistles like HyperV support and VTx whatever of course.

I don't really game per se, though for this kind of money I wouldn't mind being able to game with the machine if i wanted to. i play the fallout franchise at least.

I'm considering either an i7-9700(k?) or an i9-9900 or whatever. I think the i9 will come down this year and be in budget. *knock on wood*

anyone use either of these CPUs heavily and can tell me, particularly when using VMs if they're happy with it, or if they would have gone better in retrospect?

Or any alternatives to suggest? (I strongly prefer Intel to AMD cpus)

I'm curious mostly, leaning toward the i9 for future proofing, assuming it's not still bleeding edge by the time i buy and i can afford it.
