Re: JAWS running on computers with Dual Core Processors

Hello

What size is a terabyte hard drive? Thanks in advance to anyone who can enlighten me on this.

I wouldn't have thought the processor would stop JAWS working, just not sure how much benefit you would see with a quad core to a duel core. I'm sure it all helps though.

I saw a PC with a terrabyte sized hard drive the other day. is it just me or does that sound really futuristic. How sad am I.

I've been wondering if jaws will run on quad core processors. I'm buying a computer for audio production and other processor intensive tasks.

I don't know about JAWS having a processor all to itself, but those dual-core processors are slick. the main advantage, as you implied, appears to be performing cycle-intensive tasks, such as virus checking, without crippling your system. I've used one for just a few days shy of a year,and couldn't be happier.

Has anybody tried running JAWS 8 with RealSpeak voices running, on a computer with a Duel Core processor. For those who don't understand what they are, they are just the new type of processor, which have two processors in one, meaning your computer wont slow down when doing background tasks such as virus checking.

I fured this might make a big improvements to us JAWS users as we are always running JAWS which is quite intensive, on top of the application we are actualy trying to access.

Would it mean JAWS would almost have a processor all to itself while you are running other stuff you are accessing.
