I have to agree. He has no clue about the topic.
He has gathered all the "internet myths" (read misinformation) of digital audio in two short videos.

The worst part is that he probably got paid to do this videos (Lynda.com). I also noticed it was from 2007, and it just makes it OLD misinformation.

This is how, what I call Internet myths live on. Please someone remove this from youtube.

Have to thank all the experts who provided information here... I was not aware that I should turn off Hyperthreading... not the subject of the original post, but highly useful ( and mentioned in Steinberg Knowledge Base). Helped a lot with my performance issues with Studio Drummer, my go-to drum set.

Also, love those videos from Xilph - Monty Montgomery - very well explained.

Thanks, all.
