Is there a particular procesor architecture, that lends itself to image processing ?

It depends on what kind of image processing you are doing.  Some algorithms are highly repetitive, and can take advantage of simultaneous execution (SSE).  Some algorithms (kernels, for example), could take advantage of the special multiply/accumulate structures in a DSP...  Some algorithms (like randomly searching through an image or following an edge), require quick access to large portions of the image, so the size of the L3 cache is important (it really helps performance if you can store the entire image on-chip).

So, I guess it really kind of depends.

Yep -- better late than never.  Thanks for coming in!
