Mach3 on intel Dual Core
« on: February 01, 2009, 07:32:39 AM »
Hi I'm buying a new computer for Mach 3.
Will it run on a DUAL Core intel processor? Exactly on this one:
Intel Core 2 Duo processor, E6850 - 3,00GHz, 1333MHz FSB, 4MB L2 cache
I have heard there are issues with dual core processors and Mach 3 software. I ran over the forum and I saw people running dual core cpu with no problems. But just to be sure...
Other PC specs: WinXP sp3, 4GHz ram, nVidia 9500GT, MSI Neo iP35 motherboard.
Thank You for any answers!

Just about any processor should work with Mach3. There are two bios settings that may need to be disabled with newer PC's, though. Depending on the bios, look for C1E and EIST. you may not have both, though.

Thanks for the reply, so far (about two weeks of testing) the Mach 3 is running without problems and I hope it will stay this way :)
 ;D

( No need to modify bios settings or anything by the way. )
