filmscanners: Nikonscan and dual processors
Just got this back from Nikon:
>"It is known by Nikon that there are problems with Dual Processor PC's,
Windows and Mac. Although the Product Brochures do not specifically say
the 2CPU machines will not work, neither do they say it does. Dual
Processors are good but only for applications that are designed for them
like Photoshop. Ours is not and probably will not be for the foreseeable
future. Best performance with our products is achieved (currently) on
single processor P4 machines running lots of RDRAM"<
so the forums guesses were right, dual processors and nikonscan dont work
very well. (I get one scan in four or so)
funny thing is I'm not asking for NS to *utilise* dual processors, just not
to crash with them.
an awful lot of people, Mac or PC, working with such large files and
semi-pro machines will have dual machines for Photoshop... it sure speeds
my work up.
Vuescan sure looks good now?
