As per Engineering:

There should be no significant difference between AMD and Intel.

If an Intel machine has 16 cores with hyperthreading enabled, will Splunk be limited to 1 search per core or one search per thread?

Did not find recommendation to consider thread instead of core in attached doc, it's recommended to use core in calculation.
