Making a somewhat budget machine for CellProfiler (AMD or Intel)



Hey Everyone

I’m looking to make a new workstation for our research group and am looking at two processors: AMD Ryzen 1700X (16Th) or Intel 8700k (12Th). Looking at the comparison online ( Intel looks ahead but has 4 less threads.

Its basically 16Th with less individual core speed or 12 Th with higher individual core speed…

Any input on suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
