Hi.

I am an intensive digital imaging user (Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator) - using high-end 3rd party plugins, and have been led to understand that Intel P4 processors are better at running imaging programs like Photoshop.

Is this true?

NB.  I don’t use the PC to play any games!!!

Advice much appreciated.

Cheers!

Yes, P4's are better at video processing than AMD's, which are good at gaming and office apps.
