    Does Dual CPU in PC Add Any Performance Advantage

    I have a workstation capable of dual Xeon processors (only 1 in there now), with Giga 160 installed and Win XP Pro.

    Before I throw down more money to expand the system, what is the concensus about whether or not the 2nd cpu will contribute any perfomance advantage.

    Of course I understand the usual about more memory, fast dedicated drives etc.

    Thanks for your help

    With 160, I doubt it. It\'s not a bad idea for GS 3 though. Where are you at performance wise with 160? If you\'re bumping the voices already then I don\'t see where another CPU will help.

    There won’t be any performance gain for GS160, and by all I’ve heard, v3 won’t support dual CPU either. If you’re running a sequencer like Sonar or SX on the same machine, then you’d see some benefit.

    The two CPUs have to be exactly matched, usually from the same production batch. You’d probably need to get TWO new CPUs, rather than just adding one.
