i5 13600k vs i7 12700k for CAD/BIM workstation

Hi,

 

I am currently looking at building a Workstation for architectural work using CAD/BIM softwares Autodesk Revit/Navisworks/3DS Max and Rhinoceros 3D. I'm looking to use the Asus Prime Z690-P WIFI motherboard as a starting point and have narrowed my processor selection down to 2 Intel core processors, i5 13600k vs i7 12700k.

 

My question is in relation to the wording within the Spec. of the 2 processors as the majority of credentials are quite similar:

  • the i7 has 'PC/Client/Tablet | Workstation' under the heading 'Use condition'
  • whereas the i5 13600k has just 'PC/Client/Tablet'

Is this likely to significantly affect performance of the processor for the above mentioned tasks or is it just a wording thing? 

 

Basically I need help making the descision as the i5 is slightly cheaper and Im working on a very tight budget. I have attached the comparison schedule below.

 

Thanks in advance for anyone who taked time to read this.

Neil

Hello, @nadixon2017

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. We appreciate your interest in our products. 

 

Please be aware that we cannot recommend a specific model, as this depends on your needs, the software requirements, and your budget. Also, the performance of the PC will not only depend on the processor, but it will also depend on the other PC components and their potential (RAM, Drive, Motherboard, etc.) so, in the end, this is a decision for you to make based on the previously mentioned. 

 

The descriptions only provide an idea that they can be in several environments/devices (PC, Tablets, laptops, notebooks, etc.) and, it has no other effect. 

 

Here is a comparison link from Intel Ark so you can insight into their specifications from our website and think about what is the best option for you based on the mentioned above:
