AMD CPUs?
« on: September 03, 2007, 11:36:45 am »
Does LMCE make effective use of AMD X2 64 Dual Core CPUs? I was looking at just a Sempron 3200+ but then decided I wanted to upgrade it - which ones have been tested? Should I just go for a higher MHz single core, or the Dual core?

Depends, some software can use them well, others not. For example the H.264 decoder only uses one core.
