upsampling multichannel DSD64 to DSD256 processor recommendation

I would like to know if anyone is successfully upsampling multichannel DSD64 to DSD256 with Foobar2000 V2.0  I’m currently using an old Lenovo laptop with an i5-6200U processor and 16g of RAM and cannot do it.  I’m considering a mini pc and would like to know your processor recommendations .  I have an exaSound e38 DAC.

Thanks!

Why?

Now to the question, AFAIK there is no option to upscale DSD64 to DSD256 directly.
First it is converted to PCM and then to DSD.
Have a look at Foobar 2000 for Dummies (Part 2) – Playing DSD – SACD plugin

  • Mode 3:  Upsampling with the new “DSD Processor” component (v. 1.1.1 or newer)
Version 1.0.0 of the plugin introduced an component named “DSD Processor” which provides a very simple way to upsample
PCM and/or DSD to DSD (though purists be warned, DSD to DSD upsampling involves an intermediate PCM conversion step).
