I'm seriously considering replacing my loaded 2016 i7 15" MBP with a 2019 i9 as well. My big Imax Immersive premix sessions (400+ tracks running spanner and DTS' Atmos equivalent plugins while driving a few large monitors) are really pushing the limit. I'm hoping the i9 in conjunction with pushing the Vega 20 won't mean serious thermal issues...
