    Would MC7 run well on HP XW 6600?

    Hi,

    does anyone run MC7 on the HP XW 6600 workstation? I can buy one for small bucks;

    HP Workstation xw6600
    - Dual Xeon E5440 2,83Ghz, 8-cores, FSB 1333Mhz
    - 10Gb DDR2 ECC mem
    - Quadro FX 3800
    - 2x Seagate 1TB HD 7200RPM in RAID 0
    - DVD-RW
    - PCI Wifi-n card
    - PCI-e Renesas USB 3.0
    - eSATA bracket
    - Cardreader
    - 650 watt

    Or does MC7 need a more modern CPU?

    Thanks ahead,

    iedjie

    I don't see why not.

    FYI - those Renasas cards are a bit "hot-or-miss" in our experience. Hopefully, the drivers are better since we tried them several months back.

    Hi Dom,

    isn't it so that newer CPU's handle AVC media a lot better? And I'm also concerned about AMA linking on 6 year old machines...

     

    So actually my question remains, does anyone run MC7 smoothly on a HP XW 6600 with 2 Xeon CPU's?

    I'd just check the 10GB of RAM is optimal. I'd look at 16GB ideally.
