I’m thinking about upgrading my computer, mainly because of the stuff I do with n-track. I’ve got a 2.8GHz P4 with 1GB of RAM and a pretty nippy hard drive but I’m finding that it can’t quite cut it with the number of VST plugins I’m trying to use.
I’ve been thinking about upgrading my CPU & motherboard for some time but I was really after some advice about what I should opt for from someone whose used n-track on AMD and Intel dual-core machines.
In the past I’ve found that Intel CPUs have tended to fare much better than AMD ones with VST plugins. Is this still the case? How much of a performance increase am I likely to see from upgrading to e.g. an AMD X2 4200+ or a dual cpu Xeon?
Any advice is much appreciated!
