    i3-4160 with NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX vs AMD Phenom ii (6 Core) 1055T with GTX 470 1280MB for Premiere Pro and AE

      I use Premiere Pro CS6 and AE CS6 and possible Continuum Beauty Studio (to make actors look younger) to create videos. Nothing fancy.

      How do I compare i3-4160 with NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX vs AMD Phenom ii (6 Core) 1055T with GTX 470 1280MB?

      The AMD has 6 cores and 6 threads, but clocks at 2.8. the i3 only 2 cores and 4 threads, but clocks at 3.6 and rates faster in benchmarks.

      So does it really make any difference? I have read that 4 cores are the peak for difference, which goes down rapidly after 2, but that clock speeds and threads make a difference too.

       

      Anyone got any advice?
