CPU purposes in Blender

Hello, I am interested in the answer on what is the CPU being used in Blender and would I benefit much more of it if I use 8 core processor than 6.

I know that CPU bakes physics and stuff, but what I don’t know is the CPU affecting the texture loading speed, object loading? I won’t be using CPU for rendering.

It won’t make much difference if the two CPUs have similar single-threaded performance.
Single thread performance is important too. For general use in Blender we recommend a CPU balanced between single threaded performance and number of threads. Here you can see Single thread performance benchmark:
