Hi and thank you for your answer.
I'm planning on using bookmap to trade BTC only on a single platform .
Considering you recommandations and comparing a lot of desktops , I've redirected my choices between these two options :
  1.   Ryzen 9 5900X (3,7GHz / 4,8GHz Boost) 12 cores - 32 Go Ram - Geforce RTX 3080Ti - SSD 480 Go. 
  2.   Core i9-11900KF (3.5GHz / 5.2 GHz Boost) 8 cores - 64 Go Ram - Geforce RTX 3080 - SSD 1To.
I've compared both cpu's in benchmarks but could'nt figure out which one would suit the best .
Thanks.

Well, being honest - I'm not sure.
Second one has more RAM, so that looks like a better choice in long term, but at the same time I can't promise you that JDK-8263710 does not affect 11th gen Intel (JVM developers assume it does not, but we didn't verify that). So there is a slight risk. If you are ready to return the PC to the shop in case of issues - I'd probably go with Intel first at this point.
Ryzen is probably a bit slower in per-core performance (and that specific config has less RAM), but other than that looks like a solid choice.

For single BTC instrument both should be more than enough as long as you'll use reasonably large pips values (at least 5, maybe 10).
