Dear WRF user,

I want to buy a new computer for a long time WRF running,
Would it be better to buy a faster processor with less cores, or a slower processor with more cores?
For instance, which one will be run faster, A processor with 8 cores with 4 MHz wil be better or a processor with 32 cores with 2 MHz?

I think you should use a processor with more cores.
The WRF will be run faster, cause It access to hard disk directly.
