Default Dual Xeons & PTLE 6.1

I've got a P4 2.8 system right now, but with the amount of plugins i have (213) and the amount of plugins i use for a super huge mix, it's just not keeping up. So i'm going to sell it and my digi 001 for a digi 002 and a dual 3.2 xeon system.

as far as i know, ptle and xeon are compatible- i'm just not sure if ptle and dual xeons are.
i'm also getting my system with (2) 250 8MB HDs
can i install windows on one and keep the other clean for pro tools and my sessions?

thank you.

Default Re: Dual Xeons & PTLE 6.1

see previous threads on duel processors

basicly PTLE is not wriiten to take advantage of duel processors so while you will see some improvment it will not be worth the money
more improvements can be made if you are runnig multiple rewire apps - basicly running PT on 1 processor and rewire on the other - i know people are going to start baging me on this just because they have not seen it done - you have to set the processor affinity in task manager - cant leave things to windows deafults

if you wish to stick with intel go for a fast Hyper Threading P4 - most of the advantages of duel processing with out the price tag - or turn off HT if you want official support and more heat for the same processing

cost and performance athlon 64 seems to be the way to go
