I am looking to build a computer to process data in ArcGIS 10.2.2.
The main use will be to rasterize 10-100's GBs of lidar data.
However, I am unclear as to the capabilities of ArcGIS 10.2.2 to utilize hyper-threading and multiple cores. In prior iterations of ArcGIS, I remember that only some geoprocessing tools could utilize this added computational capability. I am therefore trying to decide between the Intel Core i5-4690K and i7-4690K.
Does anyone have any experince with these processors and ArcGIS 10.2.2? Even better, does anyone have experience with these cores for lidar data processing?
