I'm in a company working in software that involves a lot of managing and operating with integers, it also requires constant comparisions between them. (jagged arrays full of integers that must be browsed quite a lot, comparing and operating them) Right now we are coding with <b>VS2013.Net C#<\b> (I know is not the best but... I can't choose). What might happen is that we change later on to make a small library with some core coding in C++ and other compiler, but thats a maybe far in the future...
My questions is, in this scenario with VS.Net:
How I choose the best CPU?
Should I look for one specific type of instructions like SSE?
There is any masure in processors specification that is specially useful to identify best CPU?
I've checked this specifications http://ark.intel.com/products/75123/Intel-Core-i7-4770K-Processor-8M-Cac... but cant find where to look at that.
Hope someone can help, thanks in advance.
