Quad Core vs. Dual Core, photo editing
by stturn - 2/18/13 7:17 AM
I'm in the market for a new computer and I haven't bought one for 8 years. I haven't kept up on the technology very well either so I'm unaware of what is needed for what, etc. Basically, I want to be able to run CS6 and Lightroom 4 seamlessly with enough horsepower to batch edit hundreds of high res images in the background while I work on something else. I think what I'm really looking at is would the upgrade for the quad core be worth it or could the dual core handle this, but if there is anything else that is more important to make sure I can accomplish what I stated above, I'm open to suggestions. Thanks!
