recently purchased a 4g HP with an AMD athlon II dualcore M320 2.1ghz
, with intention of using it partially for music. to my disgust before purchasing the intended vestaxvci300 with serato
itch I found this......
ie, if you got athlon, then no serato.
and part of the reply from an email enquiry to serato
"Almost all performance audio software has issues with AMD, mainly because the throughput is so high many laptops with AMD chipsets struggle (similar to video)"
can someone elaborate. is it the chip, or the computer. the web is covered in dudes complaining that their athlon chips dont work well with audio software. is it the chip, or cheapy computers. I need to know because obviously i dont want to waste more $. anyone know if traktor works? are there workarounds? confused and really disgruntled with the whole athlon thing!!
