I posted a question containing CPU comparison elements and it was closed within minutes as not constructive. I agree that the way it is formulated opens a door to a flame/camp war and that was not my intention. I am genuinely interested in recent benchmarks and personal feedback from people running a setup similar to the one described in the question. I am looking for technical advice about the best CPU for this kind of virtualization setup. I am not looking for a shopping recommendation although it is true I would have to eventually buy said CPU.
What would be the best way to reformulate the question? Should I remove AMD and Intel from the title and question text? Should I put links to the articles I have read so far?
