I am a Java developer now working from home because of COVID-19 without either direct or RDP access to my development PC at the office. For the past two months I have been using my own, custom-built PC to do my development. This PC has a core i5 2400 processor, 16 GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 500GB SSD. For the most part this PC has been performing surprisingly well, considering it's age and obvious limitations. However, I work on a couple of large applications with significant compile and deployment times. On my work PC, which has a Xeon processor, building these applications and deploying them on a Tomcat server takes 1 to 2 minutes. On my PC at home, it takes about 15 minutes, and my CPU is continually spiking to 100%. Memory and disk usage levels are normal. My motherboard can support upgrading to an i7 2600 processor, which I can get on eBay for fairly cheap. Will upgrading to the i7 2600 processor make much of a difference in compile and build times?
