Dual Core Advantage?


Recommended Posts


I'm trying to learn about processors. Do dual core processors give an advantage for audio programs like Samplitude.


Yes, my Intel Core2Duo 2.4 allows me to do much more in Samplitude than my former Pentium 4 3.4 GHz. In general, a faster processor will allow more effects processing, and more RAM (and/or faster RAM) will allow more simultaneous audio tracks.

Applications need to be designed to take advantage of secondary and beyond processors. Samplitude handles and takes advantage of up to 4 cores/processors I believe.

Just FYI : 2CPU.com is a good generalized forum for learning/discussion of multiple processors (dual and quad core too) and related hardware etc.
