Which one will perform better CPU Core/Threads or RAM?

Strictly talking about performance, none of them really matters. What really matter are the Millions of Instructions per Second (aka MIPS). But, assuming both CPUs have the same performance, the latter will have better performance. The amount of RAM has actually nothing to do with performance, but there are two key aspects of RAM which should be considered: a slow RAM can affect performance; and, if you have less RAM than needed, the OS will use paging when more RAM is needed, and that will decrease performance.

For a website like Facebook which one will perform better?

4c/8t - 128 GB of RAM


8c/16t - 64 GB of RAM
