8700k vs. 9700k

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I am building a computer for a customer and I would like to find out if Vectorworks would favour an i7-9700k (8 core, 8 thread) over an i7-8700k (6 core, 12 thread) CPU please?

 

I am not sure if it will utilise all 12 threads or if raw 8 core grunt would be the better way to go. Just on the off-chance someone has tested them both, or if someone that knows how the software works might be able to confirm if it is hyperthread optimised. 

 

Thanks in advance. I just want to do the right think by my customer and make the best recommendation. 

 

Rick

Hi zoomer

Bit of a brain fart / typo by me on the core count there on the i7-9700k, oops. You are totally right, 8 cores & threads. 

 

Thanks for the info - seems like a go for 9th gen. Much appreciated.

Before, I didn't even know that there are i7 CPUs that don't have Hyperthreadding

@zoomer Yeah Zoomer rs it's New in Core i7 models. Hyperthreading usually it's disable in Core i5 Models 

That's why I have not switched my i7 yet hehe.

It's a little bit difference, doesn't justify more investment. And unfortunately, Core i9 it's so expensive to me 😀.
