We recommend to use AMD Atlon64-X2 for better Pacor and Oxygen performance.

The AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core processor puts the power of dual-core technology on the desktop. Dual-core processors contain two processing cores, residing on one chip, that perform calculations on two streams of data, thereby increasing efficiency and speed while running multiple programs and the new generation of multi-threaded software.

*The dualcore processor based computer is significantly cheaper than dual processor based computer with the same level of performance and has almost the same price as usual single processor computer.
For those who desire to achieve much higher performance there is a possibility to use dualcore processors on dual-processor computer. At this time we don't plan to test this kind of computers.
