Which effects the Marker Efficiency the Most: No. of Cores or Base Speed of Processor...?

Let suppose I've 2 PCs equipped with same version of AccuMark v9.0.
1 with More base clock speed 3.4 GHz (Boost upto 3.8) but with 4 cores (Virtual Cores/Threads 8) only
while other with low base clock speed 3.2 GHz (Boost upto 4.6) but with 6 cores (Virtual Cores/Threads 12)

My question is which PC should give more utilization on AccuNest v9.0 Multicore Edition...???
Also, can 9.0 utilize more heavy system like with 16 cores (32 Thread) Processor...???

    The number of cores and details on performance are outlined in the AccuNest release notes. The latest and most advanced AccuNest release for multicore would be V12.

    The better the hardware, the better the nesting results. With the introduction of the new engine beginning with V11.0, users are strongly encouraged to investigate the available hardware in their geographical regions and invest in the most powerful computer hardware possible. The algorithms are maximized for high performance computers.

    NOTE: AccuNest MC will simultaneously nest on all available cores of a computer. For this reason, the more powerful the processor, the better the nesting results will be. Use of the Minimum Hardware will not produce as efficient nests as recommended hardware.

    The system requirements for the latest AccuNest version is available in the release notes. Do you have AccuNest or are you looking to purchase?


  • @Kathy Valade Thank you soo much for that valuable information. What hardware do you recommend to get best out of the efficiency, considering we are not afraid of the price tag. Also, will there be any difference if we use more physical cores instead of virtual cores of process... and is there any difference between v9 and v10 Nester or the changes begins at v11 and onward...
