I've worked with both Revit & ArchiCAD. And I think the author completely misses the point here…
Overall I would say ArchiCAD is for "small" offices for professionals with IMAGINATION.
Revit is for AutoCAD - "lovers" and bigger projects, and basically for people without imagination (those that won't even expect more that it gives them). Those without the imagination always talk about how ArchiCAD is missing this and that, but it actually isn't - it's just not ment for big projects…

Single Threaded: Are You Paying For Cores You Don’t Need?
Off-the-shelf computer workstations sold by multi-national commodity builders are not optimized for CAD, and contrary to what you may have been told by a Dell or HP sales representative, most CAD applications, including Autodesk® Revit®, do not benefit from multiple CPU cores when working with interactive content. Your CAD applications are "single threaded" which means that unless you are doing a substantial amount of rendering or simulation (generally highly multi-threaded tasks) your design software is simply not capable of using the full resources of multi-processor workstations. It’s quite simple, really. If your workstation is not optimized for single-threaded performance, you’re paying for processor cores you don’t need and won’t use, as well as missing out on peak performance that will keep you creating instead of waiting. Our Revit workstations are specifically configured to provide you with best CAD application performance possible.

Is it still true that the best CPU for Revit is a single-threaded one with high frequency? This clearly indicates that Revit makes little use of multi-core processors.
