    Xeon processors vs. Core 2 Duo for Gigastudio

    Hi all,

    I'm in the process of looking at getting a new computer for running music software, specifically Gigastudio 3.0. I'm wondering if anyone has opinions on processors. Specifically I'm interested in how Xeon compares to Core 2 Duo, but any other opinions on processors would also be greatly appreciated.

    thanks!

    I don't think gs3 is taking specific advantage of dual core processors or 64-bit computing yet but the conroes do run faster and cooler than the older xeons. But beware of the nomenclature. The woodcrests are similar to the conroes and I think they're also being called xeons now... they're typically used in servers with multiple core2 processors. And to make matters worse, I think the newest quad-cores are also being dubbed xeons.

    HI,
    dont waste your money on a Xeon or any dual socket system.

    a single AMD 3500 is able to do 600 voices.
    buying a newer Core 2 (conore) while Giga is not multicore will still be faster.

    Xeon is way overkill
