Choosing PC for Programming. Fastests C++ app build
Kofr last edited by Kofr
I am choosing hardware to build a PC.
The ways I want to use it:
- Programming C++, Qt, Compiling, deploying
- Streaming how I am coding (not games)
- Virtualization. Running many instances of vms or dockers
I do not need to play games at all. That is why I do not consider discrete video adapter.
However for streaming it is needed to have nice integrated video chip.
I want fastest M2 SSD and 32gb of fastest RAM
The main concern is the CPU
According to my tasks what criteria of choosing a CPU?
Shall I choose AMD with many cores or stay with Intel which has better performance in games?
Whether you go with AMD or Intel does not matter (well, maybe it will matter to your wallet ;)). Go for high core count - the more cores (and HT), the faster your compilation will be.
@Kofr We have on AMD Ryzen 7 with 8 Cores (16 Hyperthreads) at work and the compilation speed is impressive. We use the system to build Yocto Linux images.
