    comparing 2 CPUs for AE rendering

    TimSx

      I've found out that AE uses a single core for rendering. With that being said I am having some difficulties believing I should buy a $45 CPU for my rendering machine.

       

      Take this 2 products for example:

       

      AMD A6-6400K and AMD Ryzen 3 1300X.

       

      https://www.amazon.com/AMD-A6-6400K-Dual-Core-Processor-AD640KOKHLBOX/dp/B00CPLGFM4/ref=sr _1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1507030230&sr=8-1&keywords=AMD+A6-6400K

      https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0741DLVL7/ref=psdc_229189_t2_B06XKVNRSM

      They have the same power consumption, similar clockrates, but the 1300X one is almost 3x the cost of the A6-6400K. 

      Am I missing something obvious here? Is there any argument why should someone buy 1300X over the cheeper one, if rendering is the main goal here? I won't be doing any ray-traced stuff. Does it make any sense to buy the 1300x, if I am going to shift to 2014 version of AE?
