Will Premiere Pro CS5 run on my HP xw9300 Workstation? OS Win7 64bit. 2 x AMD Opteron 2 GHz Dual-Core processors & 4 Gb memory. If so I will be purchasing a Matrox MX02 board.
It runs great on my HP xw8400 workstation, so I would guess it should run fine for you as well. I would consider getting some more RAM though - PPro likes a lot of RAM.
Thanks for the info. I think you are probably right about the RAM.
Before you invest in any thing please look at the results that you might expect on PPBM5 Benchmark site. There are no scores for a two processor Opteron with dual cores even listed. All AMD processors lack the full SSE 4.xx instruction set which is a real handicap for CS5. If you were able to run the benchmark I could almost guarantee you will come in at dead last place. I hate to say this but even with my old PPBM4 (CS4) benchmark two 2 GHZ dual cores the scores would show it to be terribly underpowered.
