Hey everyone !
I am going to upgrade my computer soon, and going from a i7 860 (first gen) to a better proc ; the reason is that my computer is having multiple BSOD while using either Cubase, ProTools, or Kontakt StandAlone. I read somewhere that maybe the processor was to blame because of the hyperthreading, and that there was a known issue with 1rst gen i7
However many people here use more recent generations of the i7 on their machine without an issue, so I could go for an i7. Question is : is the hyperthreading still a possible source of issues ?
If not, is it worth having an i7 or an i5 from the last gen is more than enough (my i7 runs smoothly entire orchestras, when the software launches, I just need more RAM).
Gentlemen, fellow composers?
