    Yes, interesting. I thought that \"Moore\'s law\" was at a standstill for once.... no increase in processor power for the past 8 months, I believe.

    I have read at these forums that hyperthreading does not help Gigastudio work any better, and in fact, needs to be turned off. So.... are these faster processors of any help at all for sample processing?

    Tests made in labs showed that Extreme Edition and Northwood have the same performance. Actually , Extreme Edition (newer technology) was about 5% faster than Northwood , witch means just a litle difference.
    Let´s see how Prescott will be!!!
