Did not search first....sorry...one of my soapbox issues. It appears that Premiere Pro can use dual processors.
Am considering a HPXW6600 dual xenon quad
Appreciate any comments.
Since at least PrPro 2.0, it's been multi-processor aware. One can even see the detection phase during the splash screen.
Now, I'd venture that each version has become even more aware, with possibly better utilization of multiple processors, as well as multiple cores..
The HPXW6600 is using the Xeon 54xx series the last generation of processors and they are obsolete (unfortunately that processor is what i have in my self-built system}. If you are going to go with dual Xeon's you want to get the newer 55xx series which are the Nehalem family (like the i7 processors) which are much much faster for Premiere. They also do not have practical graphics cards available. Etc. Etc.
I guess I am going to have to go into business building Premiere engines we seem to strike out with too many vendors.
