Which cpu for inventor

42 Views, 3 Replies

I am upgrading a machine and I am not sure which way to go P4 2.4 533 fsb or AMD XP 2400 (1.93 mhz) 266 fsb. Which one will be noticably quicker if at all.

Thanks in advance

For single CPU, a P4 will probably be faster. If you are going for a multiple processor system then
the AMD architecture with shared data cache is a lot more efficient at spreading the data over
multiple CPU's and is therefore faster (IMHO).

You can probably get a dual AMD for much less. I would pack it with as much
memory (even 3GB) as you can afford. Perhaps by a large EIDE drive instead
of a SCSI. Putting all of the data locally is a big plus.

The dual processors come into use when you are making drawings. precise.

I looked at a dual AMD setup but all the motherboards only support 266MHZ
RAM which is a little old now....
