Little Advice for a Home Lab

Hi Guys i know that Vmware does a direct multiplication to get the max GHz
i.e phycpu by speed = total
so as i plan to upgrade my box need some advice.
If i have a core i5 3xxx with 4 cores at 3GHz and a core i5 5xxx with 2 cores at 2.5Ghz which would be the best bet/selection.
Where does the CPU type affect?

  1. What do you want to run in your homelab?

    Edited to add: If it were me, I’d be installing ESXi on the quad core then run a couple of nested ESXi hosts on that and then run vCenter on the dual core (either under ESXi or Workstation.)
