Quad processor PC - Capabilities?

By wayne.ha ·
I was wondering how much a Quad enabled processor PC can handle over a dual. Is the output and power doubled effectively. Would it compute excel spreadsheet links faster/better? If anyone has real production environment details, I'd like to hear about it. Thanks in advance.

Only if your apps are designed for SMP abilities, ie: Autocad or Photoshop. The performance does not increase geometrically as the system overhead increases substancialy.

Dual through Quad processor machines are designed for server and workstation applications that can manage and/or utilitze the multiple processors. Unless you are running unix. It loves multiples. Or Macintosh. (unix core)

Photoshop is the one I use.

With general applications you won't get this benefit.

Hope this helps.
