4-core or 12-core (4P/8E) CPU for Traktor
Can Traktor even make use of a 12-core CPU? I don't know whether it is the OS that assigns work to cores or if Traktor application itself decides that. Maybe someone is knowledgeable about this kind of thing.
For me it barely uses 4 when playing.
But for analyzing a bunch of tracks it should use every core I think.0
Thanks - that's helpful info. I just want it to run things like consistency checks, analysis, as fast as possible. But I don't want to spend extra money on something that will literally have zero effect on how the app runs.0
Not sure if Traktor can utilize more than 1.7 Ghz and 4 cores. It is an old base code.
Multicore can help with bloatware processes though so you won't be suffering from having more cores.0
In my case Traktor uses at least 8 threads (4 physical and 4 virtual cores). I have i5 10th gen - like Carlos, but unlike him Traktor loads all 8 cores in my case.
But hard to say how well Traktor handles new Intel's big.little. It also depends on OS version, you should run Win11 to make 12th and higher gen. Intels run decently....0
From my years with Traktor I have always purchased a powerful laptop.
But more than anything I find that learning how to find the correct settings is more important.
But...sometimes like when I bought a Dell G7, the laptop can be expensive and still just have issues. Or an update can cause problems.
There is a program called Process Lasso, that works well, especially if you want to force applications to certain cores.
I used latencymon to see what cores I could force Traktor to on my Dell with Process Lasso and had much better performance.
With my newer laptop I have really no issues with Traktor Dpc Latency. When using the S4mk3 with Asio drivers. Wasapi drivers don't work for me.0
