Well since remnant finally made voronoi and expander to also use muliple threads, and WM can build multiple devices at a time, id probably go for some cpu with tons of cores, perhaps an amd?
However, cores arent everything ofcourse, Intel has been king for single core performance for a long while now.
My i7 3770k @ 4.5ghz simply blasts away any of my projects.
Id probably go for an intel with 6 cores and HT especially so if WM isnt the only cpu intensive app youre going to use. I would also worry about memory usage tbh, without sufficient memory you will start to page to your virtual memory, which is not TOO bad if ya got an ssd, but still. It also depends on project size, my projects usually peak out at around 20 GB so i upgraded to 32gb memory.
Ofcourse efficient projects will use less. Like device sharing etc will really reduce this.
i dont reccomend an AMD 8-core (for heavy WM usage) although im using the standard version not the pro version so i dont think it even takes advantage of the power.. personally im upgrading when the haswell-E series i7's come out.
