I want to purchase a processor for Matlab working. I have initially selected i5 9400f processor . I wanted to know that is it sufficient for my PhD work in CIVIL ENGINEERING (including future work) or shall I go for i7 8th gen processor. Or anybody who can suggest me an ideal processor for the same.
All MC methods are in general extremely CPU consuming. So, soon or later you always reach limits of your computer. From this point of view I suggest most powerful CPU you can buy by your budget + additional RAM + fast SSD disk. In some cases GPU capabilities (cuda) are very useful.
And as per my knowledge AMD processors sometimes needs different programming style than that of Intel . Is it true ? And my seniors and in my surrounding no one uses AMD SO, Will I find difficulties using AMD ?
