Question High Threaded Programs

Personally I like High Threaded Programs, I mean 64 bit, and done well.

I am getting the amd bulldozer (8 cores).

And in benchamrks its not that great in 32 bit programs, so ye.

Internet browser? Firefox 8 is probably the best for this or maybe IE even.


What about Internet Security

Just what are you wanting to know?

In my opinion, I would be looking for a reliable, effective program whether it's a 64-bit program or not. I suggest trying a few of them out and find what you like.

As for Internet Security, Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

From what I've seen the 8 core bulldozer chips don't outperform the 4 core i5 at anything really. Highly threaded or not.

On most 64 bit programs, bulldozers are about 5% slower than i7's. The more demanding the program is the better it preforms, bare in mind please, the cpu could run multiple at the same time and still be at the same level

Hi,

Just because you are getting a multi-core CPU, doesn't mean you should go out of your way to find the programs that's most multi-core efficient.

same logic as just because you got a set of snow tires, doesn't mean you have to drive all the way up to Alaska to use them to their extent.

regardless of how many cores your CPU have, you should just stick to the programs you are most familiar or efficient at using.
just like any professional photographic work are still going to be performed with Adobe Photoshop. doesn't matter how many cores the computer it has.
