Just me?

Or is the 10 core budget version the highest performer?

Highest base clock, highest boosted clock, lower rated power useage.

For everything but the most obscure workloads individual core performance is likely to trump the number of cores once you get above, say, 8 (possibly 4 or less) especially with two threads per core.
