Intel Core Duo Processor + MAX

February 15, 2006 | 5:20 pm

Does anyone know if the current PC version
of MAX supports the Intel Core Duo Processor.
Is MAX multi processor aware/enabled?

I am eagerly awaiting the max upgrade to macintel machines.
I guess a company like cycling 74 will be one of the first to make a universal binary version of max?
Did cycling 74 already announce a timeschedule for this?

My question is would MAX run faster on a Intel Core Duo Processor
running WinXP? Compared to a normal single processor environment.

if windows xp will run on a macbook pro and max msp wil run on such a configuration that would make working with max very flexible!
That would mean we do not have to wait for the max universal binary version…..

No, I mean an Dell Intel Core Duo machine…

Jitter is the part of Max most likely to improve with multi-processor
computers, but the rest of Max should receive a boost as well since
its operations happen in several independent threads.

I was about to type in that the duos in macs are not as fast as the
fastest duos available in PCs, but I just went to the Apple Store and
I see they are now offering the MacBook in 1.83, 2 and 2.13 GHz
options. So I guess that gap has closed!

Interesting…., but unfortunately I don’t understand much of this. Would
you care to explain?

Cheers,

Everybody who had a macbook on order got a speed bump as well, I
believe.
