We are an interior/FF&E company and looking at switching our software to Vectorworks, we are also looking at new hardware, we have specified this CPU in our new machines, Intel Core i7 9700k, 8 cores, 8 threads, 3.6ghz base frequency.  Would this run VW Architect and Renderworks ok ? Our models aren't huge architectural ones, interior scenes with some furniture and a bit of lighting etc, tia :)

This should be a solid choice, what graphics card/GPU do you have selected at the moment? Thats the other major factor in system performance.

@Jim Wilson Hi Jim, thanks for chipping in, we have specified an Nvidia Quadro P2000 GPU. I'm not a tech/hardware expert, just understand some basics. My main concern was running Renderworks on the above CPU, as it doesn't utilise hyper threading. Our scenes are generally small to medium interiors, office spaces etc, certainly not huge 1gb models. Would there be a big difference for Renderworks if we went with a hyper threading CPU ? Which choice below would be better ? Or maybe I'm just splitting hairs here :-))

Intel Core i7 8086K 6 core, 12 thread, 

or

Intel Core i7 9700k, 8 cores, 8 threads
