I work with Jekyll daily and am considering an upgrade to my i7-6700k based system to help with build times. I already have a fast nvme drive used for the build, and from what I can see the jekyll build pushes 1 cpu to 100%, so I am thinking the jekyll build process is cpu bound.
Can someone confirm that Jekyll is typically performance bound by the CPU when using an nvme disk? If that is the case, setting up some type of nvme striped raid array isn’t going to make any difference. It would see the fastest intel i9 would be the best option with my current build.
Does anyone have any experience with upgrading their CPU and seeing a measurable impact in performance? I’ve already done many optimizations for how my hand built template is designed to avoid performance pitfalls due to that, plus I am already on Jekyll v4.0.
