Advice on fast cpu for single threaded application.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm stuck using an ancient bit of software that only runs on one thread, so any advice on what is the fastest budget cpu out there? I don't need a high core count with this but I'm looking at several day's of processing time on my laptop and the ability to cut that down to a day will do wonders for my iteration cycle.

Some used i3 or i5 or i7  K CPU at 5ghz, and/or just get an R3 3300X if you can even find one.


I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

I use PassMarks single thread performance chart for picking CPUs.
