    configuring your cpu

    I was wondering if people feel there is any advantage in resource allocation on a pc, if, where a multi core cpu is installed, configuring software such as say AVID MC7 and after effects etc which might want to be running at the same time to only have access to some cores, might be beneficial?

    ie  AVID cores 1-4

    ae  cores 5-8

    as my i7 has 8 cores available?

    Any benefit?

    Re: configuring your cpu

    Peter, I've been using it recently (I have 4 cores) with AE (6.5 not CSx) and MC. I've had AE doing some rendering on 3 cores and I've left 1 core for MC while I continue to do some basic editing. I found it quite useful. This is with 1080i footage. I also have very fast hard drives - a combination of SAS (RAID) and WD Blacks - which is also important when multiple requests are being made for data.
