CPU: More Cores or more speed

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

i am asking myself what is more useful for a Watchout Server CPU: More Cores or more Speed. Is a CPU with only 4 Cores but 3,5 GHz better than a CPU with 8 Cores but only 2,4 GHz? Does Watchout use more Cores on one CPU?

 

Thanks for your thoughts!

 

Greetings

Matthias

Yes, WATCHOUT fully utilizes multi-threading in movie decoding.

 

 

It also depends on the media being played.

 

Decoding just one 4k movie probably benefits from more speed.

Decoding four 2K movies probably benefits from more cores.
