I wonder which one is the best. The best Armari workstation or the best Boxx Workstation

I wouldn't mind having any of those two

You could have one at work and one at home .



The rendering horses of Boxx seem a bit better though... But workstation-wise I don't really know, anyone making a comparison?? :P

Well, it's actually 12 cores, 24 threads. The extra perf. from the thread is "generally" going to get you about 20-30% gains over the cores w/ ht off.
