Thanks for the reply!

It would appear so:,120489

I agree, that math suggests a clear winner.  I just wasn't sure if there was some cost to parallelizing (apologies if incorrect term) john over numerous cores that I was neglecting to consider than might tip the scale in favor of higher base frequency.

Also, I mainly focused my CPU search around three variables: # of cores, frequency, and AVX-512 capability.  Do any other variables (L3 cache size, max memory speed, other specific feature, etc) matter for this purpose?

Again, many thanks!
