I’m thinking about upgrading my recent DAW that I built about a year ago.
Its an AMD Phenom II x2 560 Black 3.3Ghz (AM3 socket). Since I’ve put it together, a lot has changed (as it always does) and I’m afraid to say, I may have forgotten some things that I’ve learned along the way.
Is it true, for DAWs, that multi-cores aren’t even really ideal, and that higher ghz’s are what we’re looking for? I remember reading about that before. I see all these affordable AMD x6 and x8 cores and wonder if I should even bother going that route.
Is the “multi-core support” option in “Devices” legit and all I need to take advantages of multiple cores?
I use AMD’s “multi-core enhancer” or whatever…dl’d soon after I put this DAW together.
Some advise? I guess my budgets around $150…not even sure if it would be a significant upgrade over my 560, but some sales over at Newegg and TigerDirect just got me kinda thinkin about it.
