While staying around the same price point, it appears Intel can excel at clock speeds w/fewer cores while AMD Ryzen can offer an abundance of cores but is not quite as fast. So, it made sense to me to understand what my softwares tend to like. This information is not so easy to find. I use Alibre 3D CAD software and it specifically says high clock speed is most important. Few other softwares make this known. How can I find out? I want to make the CPU choice between Intel and AMD. Softwares I use include the following, of which most I cannot determine if they are clock speed or core count biased.
Adobe Premier Elements (4k video)
Adobe Photoshop Elements
Microsoft Office 2013. Mostly Outlook. Will be moving to Office 365.
Google Chrome Alibre Professional 3D CAD. This one likes high clock speed. Keyshot (3D CAD rendering). This one likes LOTS of cores.
Google Chrome and Firefox browsers.
