Do AMD CPU's need Driver and Dual Core Optimizer Installed?

If you have a Phenom Quad Core, should you install these to get best speeds:

  • AMD Dual-Core Optimizer Version 1.1.4
  • AMD Processor Driver Version 1.3.2.0053 for Windows XP

I see them and wonder if they are needed to get better performance.

I appreciate help with comments.

Thank you

You should first chekc your mobo site for the drivers and AMD site for the drivers but from the last time I used XP I installed the AMD processor driver only. Since you have quad core I don’t think you should use the dual core optimizer as it seems for only dual core.

Well the “AMD Processor Driver Version 1.3.2.0053 for Windows XP” is listed on the AMD site under Phenom processors, so I guess you should load it. Link

Thank you for reply

Is that to mean not to install CPU Driver and Multi Core Optimizer at all?

Thank you for helping
