Is it better to go for a high clockspeed, or high core-count for Ignition?
Is there a minimum benchmarking PassMark score that you would recommend for moderately large projects?
I’ve been burnt before going with a low-spec Intel Atom E3845 (993 PassMarks, 1.9GHz x 4 cores)
However without having different hardware to test with, I’m not sure what minimum I should be recommending, and if I should be choosing cores over clockspeed. From my understanding, for multi-threaded applications, more cores is better; whereas for older single-threaded applications, higher clockspeed is better.
Symptoms I was having with this processor were: slow navigation (even after windows had been cached), and slow performance in general for example with flashing objects on the screen not being in synch (despite having the combine repaint option set on templates/windows that had flashing objects)
