    How will upgrading to an x2 impact our DAW's?
    Will it be the same as the athlon 64, i.e. "transparent" to your software, but everything runs better?
    Or will your software see it as 2 cpu's, and possibly cause some grief, if your software/hardware/drivers are not "dual" cpu compatable?
    I remember the intel hyperthreading causing some problems. Kinda the same thing.
    AMD claims on their web site that the x2 chips will be transparent to your system, and all will be well.
    But say what they will, they are in the business of selling chips.
