I am now getting ready to do a substantial amount of photo editing this
year and have been using an AMD-dual core 2.6ghz cpu
It works very well but since I also have a quad core machine I decided
to give it a try. Both machines have 8 gigs of DDR2 and identical
nvidia graphics ...the quad core CPU is AMD but only 1.8 ghz
Bottom line: the dual core machine processes images /considerably/ faster.
Correct me if I'm wrong , but it sure appears CPU speed is critical
and not the number of cores.
