My current system is based on a I7 975 (3,33). I had it for a couple of years now and it served me well.
Since I have to do a new install anyways because I finally want to switch to 64bit I want to upgrade the hardware as well.
As the title says I’m looking for an E5 2687W. As far as I understood, that is the way to go if you are aiming for high plugin count with low latency.
Unfortunately I did not follow the discussions here lately and have now Idea what mobo (Chipset) would be the right one.
System will be:
Nuendo 6 64
RME HDSPe Madi
Samsung SSD 840 Pro (3x for System / Samples / Audio)
Focus is on high plugin count with low latency (64/128 buffer)
Any hint would be welcome
