Best Processor for Android development. Tags: CPUs Development Android Last response: September 27, 2012 1:25 PM in CPUs Share ajinCET September 27, 2012 12:53:05 PM Hi all, I decided to assemble a PC for android development. I'll be using windows 64bit ultimate edition and eclipse IDE, Android emulator, a web browser and other small applications. I DON'T CARE ABOUT GAMES. To get the best performance for me shall I choose an Intel i5/i7 or AMD FX8150/FX6100. I searched many forums and people are simply fighting over gaming performance of AMD vs intel. Nobody is talking about developer problems like building a java project with 500+ files/classes and all. Please give me your advice. Thanks, Ajin.

Raiddinn a b à CPUs September 27, 2012 1:25:33 PM Eclipse IDE is not super tough on processors, but I don't see anywhere that it specifically says anything about how well it is threaded. Either way, you can safely just get a 3570k and not worry about it. Also, make sure you get a large SSD. You will want your OS, programming environment, and your programs that you are developing to all be on there. - Edit - Best would probably still be the 3960X, or a high end Xeon or so, but the most cost effective high end processor is probably 3570k-ish.
