computer good enough?

cineform's prospect HD minium requirements are a Core 2 Duo 3GHz.

I have a dual core Xeon 5060 3.2 gig - is this fast enough? is a "core 2 duo" the same as a "dual core"?

I've searched online but couldn't find an answer...

thanks

I continued to search and found this from 2007...

"Core 2 Duo are next gen processors from Intel on 65 nm platform… developed from Ground up with new Architecture called Core… so they are whole new Processors.

Intel Dual Core Processors are just launched striped down version of Core 2 Duos.. they perform same like Core 2 Duos but they were launched with a very low price to counter the market of super low cost but high performer AMD X2 range line up to AMD X2 4000…."

don't know if this it true or not...will keep looking.

Yes that CPU should be fast enough. Basically two cores are required for real-time capture of 1080p from HDSDI.
