Lastly i9 are ridiculously expensive, so more GPU capacity maybe better value, in part because GPUs maybe better for parallel signal processing.

Yes, most of those i9 cores will probably chock unless reserved for only 2 hyper-threads mostly working with code and data in the core L1 cache; the more context switches and L1 cache misses the slower the code will run!
