Hi all, I posted the following on the keyboard forum and a few people suggested that I check in with the good people at Gigperformer to see if there’s something specific to GP that benefits from 6 cores as opposed to 4…thanks in advance for your input.
… my late 2011 MBP just died (2.2 i7 w/16 G RAM and SSD, so you know where I’m coming from). I use Gigperformer with a lot of different piano and E piano libraries and an occasional synth. I’m comfortable using a 128buffer, but I did stop using Amplitube on my E pianos as I found it added a touch more latency than I’m cromfortable with. My question; it looks like I can get, for similar pricing, a 2020 MBP 16” with the 9th gen i7 6 core with 16 gig ram or a 13” with 10th gen i7 4 core with 32 gig ram. Both are 500+ SSD (that should cover me with room to spare). Screen size is a non issue…of course the larger screen would be nice but not a factor. I like the idea of the 10gen processor and 32 gig ram, so I guess it really comes down to whether the 6cores will make a big difference over the 4. Or is the doubled RAM more important … Any help would be great.
