I remember reading awhile back something about a cpu with more cores may actually be slower than one with less cores. Is this true for applications like SolidWorks? I am configuring a Dell system and would like to get the best CPU I can. The options are:
Quad Core Intel® Xeon® W3565 3.20GHz, 8M L3, 4.8GT/s [subtract $1,220.00]
I know SolidWorks benefits from higher clock speed and is a single threaded application. Is it worth getting the 3.46GHz W3690 CPU over the 3.2GHz W3265 CPU given the # of cores?
