AVID XPress and AMD...?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Does anyone out there have any experience running AVID XPress Pro HD (or any of the XPress versions) on an AMD based system? AVID says that it only supports Intel based systems, but I don't see why they would try and code that into the program. I want to install and run AVID on my Opteron 170 system (with a 32-bit XP OS), which I'll eventually try, but I'm curious if anyone has any experience with it first. I mean is it even possible to code a program like Avid to work with Intel and not AMD??

Hell no. Nevertheless, the application would definitely be more Intel optimized because of the new CPU instructions, to be exact "SSE4" (BTW AMD's new Phenom supports SSE4a!)
