in fact EASE cannot offer direct support for AMD processors. Because Intel provides a very fast and stable set of libraries we are using that for some signal processing. This means that in particular on Intel processors you will see performance gains due to the fact that these functions have been optimized for the individual processors. Nevertheless they will run on AMD machines just fine, but not as fast.
I don't have any other hints, except that with the Intel Hyperthreading PCs you can easily run Word or Outlook while EASE is busy with computing in the background.
Maybe Bruce or other users can comment on that.
