Cores or Clock Speed?

both
but if you can only base your purchase on one criteria, definitely cores. But you can buy 8 core CPUs pretty cheap now so it's not a big deal.

With samples and VI it's really a lot of factors. Hardisk speed, RAM, CPU. It's not one thing. Also it's tough to know just how optimized Kontakt is for MP.
You can get 12 cores but is it really going to get full utilization?
