View Full Version : XSI's use of Dual CPU workstations?

09 September 2004, 01:28 AM
I'm fairly new to XSI (the EDU version is coming to me in the mail as i speak) .. but im not new to 3D. So my questions here are more hardware specific.. since i'm pretty sure the training materials that are coming with my box should help me out in my migration to XSI :)

Does XSI take advantage of any of the performance offered by multi CPU systems when it comes to working in the interface (Not rendering)? .. like for example are some tasks in XSI multi threaded? or is it pretty much limited to rendering (which i know the advantage of two over one ;))

I'll be moving to a dual opteron system hopefully in the spring, and just want to know where most of my gains will come from :)
