PC machines / CPU choice : more threads or more GHz
Hi,I am about to build a new desktop.I am wondering if it makes sence to buy a i7 CPU ( 8 threads ).Or if a faster i5 ( with 4 threads ).All this running win7 64.Thanks for your feedbacks !BestMehdi
Because Isadora doesn't support multi-threading (with the Lion and Mountain Lion it started not behaving like Mark intended) I think less threads and more GHz will be better in terms of Isadora.
Hi Michel,That's what I feel also.On my i7 I never get use of the 8 threads, only 4 at a time ( witch are I guess the 4 cores ).That's why I'm thinking into buying a faster i5 !BestMehdi
On the other hand, I wonder if the additional threads help with all the other processes that are running at the same time as Isadora? The OS and so on...
Just a thought.
Hi,I will run only isadora on these machines, so no real other processes except OS.On my i7 I never managed to get anything else than the 4 cores getting used when only using isadora.That's why I'm thinking switching to faster i5.BestMehdi
