I'm using it as a semi-valid excuse to do a custom build. My question: in choosing a CPU, should I seek more total cores or faster base frequency? Faced with a multitude of options, I've narrowed down to a couple of CPU possibilities (for lack of a better idea): Intel Xeon Gold 6148 has 20 cores at 2.4 GHz base freq. Intel Xeon Gold 5122 has 4 cores at 3.6 GHz base freq. Both offer AVX-512 and both actually have the same max turbo freq of 3.7 GHz. Both same refurbished price point. I tried to do my own homework, but I figured I'd reach out for help. I am extremely grateful for any advice or better CPU suggestions. Many, many thanks.
