Default Re: Single core vs. dual core vs. quad core

Can anyone comment on whether there would be any significant performance increase if I move from a system with 2 Xeon single core CPU's running at 3.8Mhz to either 2 Xeon Dual Core CPU's running at 2.66Mhz or 2 Xeon Quad Core CPU's running at 1.86Mhz?

I know that neither Xpress Pro or Pro Tools are optimized for Dual or Quad core CPU's so I wasn't sure if it was worth the money to move to a newer system.

Any comments or guidance would be appreciated.
