i7 optimizations, any advise

Postby gmlogan on Sat Feb 12, 2011 7:41 am

Got an i7 based system coming (870, 4 core +HT) with a hunk of RAM. Guess it will be fast just due to the grunt, but is there anything anybody is aware of to look out for in terms of optimizations? Nvidia Video card as well.

Nothing that I know of--running a i7 940--12g DDR3-2000 ram & SLI 9800GT Nvidia....runs very sweet with LDME, fast boot--no real problems. I'm running "Expermintal" sources so I can use Gnome3/Gnome-Shell in my main install, have 4 other OS as secondary/fallback.
