Re: The new “Standard” CPU specific test for PTLE

The centrino from what I can gather is actually rated marginally above the mobile PIV 2.4 -2.6 I believe in bench tests. . That puts it on par bench wise with a 2.4-6 or so desktop PIV. The fact...

Re: Dual G5 2gig and PRO TOOLS LE ROCKS!

Make sure before you run any tests..that your CPU is set to "highest"...not auto.

You loose a lot of umph when it's not set to highest performance.

Re: G5... not working with 002Rack

Hmmm, If Digi knows of a conflict and told you there is one, not much to do but wait.
