Re: 2014 15" MacBook pro underperforms to 2010 15" MacBook pro

I have since started using the 64-bit version which helped a lot. Especially with the CPU idling high when Kontakt was being used. (Kontakt 4 may be unstable; using only Kontakt 5.) So far seems reliable so far on tour and now finally snappy at 128 samples.

Re: 2014 15" MacBook pro underperforms to 2010 15" MacBook -go64

I've seen another post about this identical problem. I've now been running the 64-bit version and that seems to help significantly--at least with the CPU idling high problem.

Re: 2014 15" MacBook pro underperforms to 2010 15" MacBook pro

I haven't tried the 64-bit version. But if that might help I will try it. (I'm trying to think of what might not be happy in 64-bit mode.) I did mention I have a new 2014 15" with an i7 is you read my post, specifically . . . it's a 2.5GHz i7 16GB RAM 1TB SSD. (Intel Iris pro graphics.) Running Thun...

Re: 2014 15" MacBook pro underperforms to 2010 15" MacBook pro

I am finding Kontakt to be much of the problem. (I though I checked this.) I don't know why it behaves differently on a new computer with the same OS, but on the new computer, every instance of Kontakt adds 2% to the CPU load. As I turned off all the Kontakt instances I turned 30% background CPU on ...

2014 15" MacBook pro underperforms to 2010 15" MacBook pro

Why does a new mid-2014 2.5Mhz i7 quad core machine perform worse than (or equal to) 2.66Ghz i7 (dual core) from 2010? What is making my background CPU meter read higher on newest MacBook. I bought a new machine thinking I might be able to get improvements in latency. But that’s not happening even t...
