    Providing that it is apples to apples as in same # of core, CPU speed, which chip would perform better for home recording? No sure but is one better for serial and or parallel processing? I will be using Cake walk, not sure of what amp Sim or other plugins outside of the plugg-ins that come with cakewalk that I will be choosing.

    If I remember, tests were made and with equal Cores quantity and speed, the result were the same for DAWs.
    For the additionnal amount of money you need for a Xeon, I would consider a I9 instead.

    I am going to back Marco on this one. I had a Mac Pro 2012 model with 2 Xeon 3.46GHZ processors until about a year ago, while it was great ( main thing is support for ECC, I think from memory), an I9 is your best bet, AND the prices are coming down!!. I got a 14 core 10940x for about £750.00
