The only thing that makes a difference in this case concerning the CPU is speed. The slower the CPU the more hair you pull, the faster, the happier.
RAM though is a bigger deal. Google recommends 16GB on native but on WSL it is all the more important because we already have Windows and the programs you run in the background taking a chunk of that, then WSL and the programs you run on it. Jack already tends to OOM on less than 16GB on native. So if you want to try it, be my guest. But if you run into memory issues, you'll have been warned.
