Which of these machines is better for rendering in AE? The faster 6 core or slower 8 core? The 6 core is limited to 16 gigs of RAM. Only $200 difference in price...
One 3.33GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon “Westmere” $3,699.00
Two 2.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon “Westmere” (8 cores) $3,499.00
I'd go for the one that has more cores and allows for more RAM to be installed.
