Do you think 32 GB is overkill like our Hardware management is saying as push back?


Yes.

It is unlikely that your Visual Studio project will utilize this much RAM. I have only encountered a few projects that utilize this much RAM... all of them were C++ solutions with 20+ projects/libs and the RAM was used only during the linking stage.

I would recommend Build 1 with only 16GB of RAM. More cores means faster compiling... and with SSD drives you get faster machine code generation on disk.

For running Virtual Machines... Build 1 is also vastly superior due to the large 20MB cpu cache versus the 8MB cache on the consumer processor.

They could save over $500 by avoiding the Intel I7 6900K and going for a lower-end Xeon 8 core processor with 20MB cache. There are dozens of them for under $500.

Best Wishes,
