Trading Computer Processor Comparison
Selecting the Right Processor
The most important decision you'll make is selecting the processor. Just selecting the most expensive processor might not be the right decision.
There are 2 factors to consider with an Intel processor - the single core speed and how many cores it has. Better single thread performance is more important for certain programs such as NinjaTrader 7, ThinkorSwim, etc. Programs such as TradeStation, eSignal or NinjaTrader 8 will benefit from faster multi thread processors.
