I would go for more real cores. Back when I was doing CGI, I thought the
Pentium 4 with HT would be a good idea, but it wasn't. On that CPU, the
logical Intel cores only do integer operations; floating-point can only be
done on real cores. It's probably the same on the modern chips, otherwise
they'd just say 4 real cores. So even though I normally favor Intel PC's,
if these 2 are your only choices then I would suggest the AMD.
