Hello there!


I am looking for a Workstation for Solidworks.

I am confused betweem two processors.

Intel Core i7 8700K vs Xeon 2146G

Which processor is better?


I mainly do Sheet Metal Modelling and Assemblies. I dont do rendering or simulation. However I use Other Simulation and Programming software for CNC Machines.

I run Multiple CAD Applications and also use Virtualization Computing.

I need suggestions urgently regarding processor choice.


1) Core i7 8700K - 3.7 clock speed and 4.7 turbo speed, 6 core 12 MB

2) Xeon 2146G - 3.5 clock speed and 4.5 turbo speed, 6 core 12 MB

    Which one is better for my use?
