Hi does anyone know if a dual G5 1.8ghz is quicker than a Single CPU

for a digital studio and need to process these files each day.

It depends on if the application was written to be aware of dual
processors. I have an MDD 867 that moves pretty nice with PhotoShop,
but PhotoShop is multi-processor aware.

It would depend if Capture One 3 is multi-processor aware and tuned to
use the G5

oops, I forgot to ask, why wouldn't you use the Adobe RAW plug-in with
pre CS Photoshop or just the CS Photoshop which includes the RAW plugin?

Why not call the company that makes it and ask...



The best guess is January 24; the actual 20th anniversary of the
Macintosh.

That would be an "on-topic" response typical for you, Johnny...

Or, whether you can run two instances of Capture One 3 at the
same time, each on a different file. That's the poor-man's
version of multi-threading. :-)

It's a far better question than anything you've said WinWeasel.
Of course your comment is more Weaseling.

Bet you to $1 the processor wouldn't make as much difference as extra
RAM. Personally the only time I notice my new AMD 2600+ being quicker than
my old 1200+ is when rendering 3D in Maya and playing games.

Multitasking requires more ram to avoid using swap space, Cpu intensive
tasks require faster processors to complete sooner.

You expect performance from an AMD?

Nope, I get performance from an AMD.
