With the bombardment of emails for the upcoming Killer Home Recording mega launch, I’ve been asked repeatedly which CPU process is fastest or gives the most bang for the buck. The truth is I don’t know. Why? Because these things update daily and if I pick the fastest today, I’ll have to update it in 10 minutes.
Here’s what I go.
These nerds have their standardized tests which I’m sure are close enough for audio usage. I wish you could cross reference the CPU speed with the price to show the best bang for the buck. Maybe someday I can write a script that does that. For now, you’ve got to do it the old fashioned way and go to Newegg.com (or whatever) and look for yourself to see which one is right for you in terms of price.
BTW, it’s worth double checking the prices. Sometimes a $900 processor and a $300 processor are virtually identical in performance!
