    Does anyone know if ProTools takes advantage of 4 processing cores?

    Also, is PCI-Express vs PCI-X an issue for a basic digital audio workstation?

    Given Digidesign's notorious attitude to upgrades I think it safe to say that even the new PT 7 due out will not be making much use of the quad cores.... :rolleyes:

    High level mutli-input systems will benefit from the additional bandwidth, but only on very large scale productions. However, video handling may well improve.

    Give em a couple of months, they'll sort it out.
