I am running Core 2 duo, and core 2 quad (requires 64bit)-
The 2.13 duo does not require 64bit, but can run that, and the quad is 2.66,
I have interchanged the two chips between two motherboards, an Intel DG33TL (made for Vista), and an Asus P5KPL-CM (I am running Windows XP Professional 64bit, and Windows XP Home Edition 32bit (but have used Pro) 32bit)- I also have used the Windows 7 64bit (and the necessity to buy the 64bits was the 2.66 Quad)- none of my equipment will run any of the Operating systems efficiently (I also use an AMD 2.90 Triple core with a Biostar A770E3 which is running the Windows 7, and that does not run well)- I have tried the 64bit 7 with the Quad core, and in lieu of coming service packs, I have put it on the shelf as far as the Quad is concerned.
I would like to talk about the Audio Editor Goldwave, and the Lame Mp3 encoder, and the compatibility between 32bit XP drivers compared to Vista/7 multimedia ideas. I am also running Ableton Live and have found compatibility issues with that. I notice only 14% of the motherboard chipset drivers will install on any of the OS I am using (that’s for sure XP), and I have to assume the rest of the drivers left are made for Vista multimedia. Because of those missing drivers there seems to be compatibility issues in what drivers will load up with the XP, and what drivers will load with the Vista- and 7 is no better. It’s as if in the driver library/set itself the cohesion of the clockwork gears is missing some elements (I have no worries: I am running a quad core)- but I have to assume for matters of convenience and single core operation the load has been lightened to allow for the possibility of a Windows 98 format single core-
The Lame encoder runs sluggish even with the quad in light of those XP drivers only loaded, and that includes the Windows 7 (I have had the opportunity to install the Vista on my DG33TL and have noticed 100% of the drivers loaded (with the Vista Home Premium)- and every option seemed to work. I could not justify the use of the Vista because I did not own the software, and uninstalled it. I am busy scraping up the money to buy the software)- but this aught not to be so: the motherboard drivers should be flexible enough to run on the Xp, and the 7, even if it’s just barebones audio (sometimes I do not need the Dolby, or the high def, I just need it to work- I can work with it trust me!).
Maybe in the hardware itself provision needs to be made between barebone audio and high def, or Dolby, and that just by flipping a switch. Or else, in my view the hardware driver package needs to be more comprehensive in the way it distributes the driver packages (and this might include intermediary gears in with the transmission)- sounds kind of cumbersome? I don’t care, I have a quad core!! (and am looking for 16)-
My recording have come out with blemishes, and depending on which machine I was on determined how bad that was (I am back to the AMD and Windows 7, but it is not working properly)-
p.s.) I have also found the need for an audio filter (sometimes I don’t want high def, but Dolby)- I would rather have the recording felted, than cymbalized)- http://www.reverbnation.com/#/theology
That’s where the recordings are, the vocalized audio are the ones specified (the low fidelity instrumental recordings are from a previous era of socket 775, of which were single and duo cores, and those boards were the ones burnt out; the higher fidelity music is the Quad); The lower fidelity instrumental is recorded on Ableton Live Audio tracks, and the higher fidelity instrumental is mostly Ableton Midi tracks on the quad)- The Ableton has run into compatibility issues since upgrading from the 813 to the 815, and I have found conflicting ASIO issues (The Gearbox Toneport has an ASIO, and I use ASIO4all): I had to reboot the computer to get them to inter-change, because the ASIO with the Toneport only works with the Toneport? Toneport?
I wonder if the ASIO issue has some significance in what we are talking about as it is a major gear in the scheme of things- and I have never seen it not to work. It will not work with the Biostar board all the way, with the windows 7; no front mic inputs work on any board, and front interfaces are not working usually at all (except for USB)- (I have a USB Creative Audio Xfi 5.1 external that will not work either)- that should tell you something about the Windows 98 Creative upgrade;
