get the heaxcaore i7

and take a read at this : http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/299179-31-workstation...

of course, theres the option of going with a dual LGA 1366 board from EVGA classified series...so much power it'll blow your competitor firms out of business :D 

BTW - Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Majority of the applications you have mentioned love crunching through cores.. In other words, more cores = better performance.. As such, the 1090T gets the upper hand here.. Of course the i7 has hyper-threading but the two extra physical cores of the X6 will yield better results compared to the 4 virtual cores of the i7..

I'm with dipankar on this. I'm on Photoshop every day and there is nothing shipping right now that beats the i7s on CS4 or CS5. Hands down. Period.

I use All of the above mentioned softwares as well as voronoi calculations/simulations on maya 2011. Getting a Hexacore i7-970 will be his biggest plus point, but for this threads sake I'd go the i7-950.

@Dipankar : You seriously believe too much on synthetic benchmarks.. Get over it for your own good as real world scenario is much different.. And I can say this as I run 3DS Max for a living.. Although I do agree that Intel solutions do excel in Adobe apps (again, real world experience)..

Yes, Intel does excel in Adobe. I have used an AMD X6 that belongs to an associate and there is absolutely no comparison on any function in CS4 or CS5. It's not even close.

Well, here is your proof. I'm a cow. I'm sacred. And I say i7s rule Adobe CS! :) 

Abandon all attachment to the results of action and attain supreme peace... except when trying to apply filters to a 13 GB Photoshop file! :)

Hey, that's my sister the astronaut! The one that jumped over the moon! :) 

PhoenixLight, in most cases Xeon=i7 :)

Let me try some sort of tips.... :p 

If you really just want the fastest rendering times for 3DSMax, get the Core i7.

If you still want a responsive system while 3DSMax is rendering, get the Phenom II X6.

Couldn't disagree more.

The X6 does not do anything in real world use at any time better/faster than an i7 950. It could be an X8 and still not beat it across the board. Even some of Emperus' benchmarks are of only limited application to real world use. :D

manchu might've seen how the post's went backwards 3/4th's of the way down this thread and left tom's for good :lol: 

bench's aside,real world application/experience counts, i have a rendering rig that runs amd's Phenom II hexacore ^ ^ if my i7-920 is occupied with other render work...still puts out a good render just a lil longer to do.

Unless you go to the 8 core Xeon MP processors, Xeons actually have the same core as i7s for the most part. Aside from a couple of minor features, they're pretty comparable.
