CPU multithread vs Single core speeds? What is best for Notch

Hey Captains,

Does Notch take advantage of multiple CPU cores, or is it mainly a single threaded operation that favours faster single core gaming focused CPUs?

Did a quick search on here and the FB user group but couldn’t find an answer.

Looking to make some updates to my tower and looking at an older 10980XE intel i9, mainly as I still do editing, and some rendering outside of Notch.

Generally faster cores are better, except for a few cases while multiple threads can be useful - e.g video streaming and rendering.
