yeah, it definitely exceeded my expectations.
This new computer + the new 64bit beta is definitely changing the way I work. Whereas before I would find myself having to quickly start freezing things to save on mem and cpu, now I can continually keep loading things without even thinking about it.

Just had a set open with two instances of Omnisphere, 1 instance of Stylus RMX, an instance of trillain with a 2GB+ upright bass module selected, an instance of Synthogy's Ivory with a 4GB upright piano selected and 10 audio channels, each with their own effects chain. Cpu barely peaked over 10% :)

This is for the first Live 9 beta, 32-bit version, released 31. October 2012.

So with the same machine, I had 29-30% for Live 8.3 with 5400RPM HD, then 23-24% with Crucial M4 SSD, and now 19-20% with Live 9 beta and Crucial M4 SSD. Not bad.

1 ) Ableton Live CPU Meter % - 19-20%
2 ) Laptop/Desktop? Make/Model? - MacBook Pro 13" 2.9GHz 2012 model
3 ) Operating System? - Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8.2)
4 ) Ableton Live version? Live 9 (first beta!)
5 ) CPU Make, Model, and Speed? - 2.9 GHz i7 with Turbo Boost
6 ) Amount of Ram? - 8GB DDR3
7 ) Soundcard (and driver version if you know it)? - RME Babyface driver v1.76
8 ) Hard Disk Drive Speed (if you know)? Crucial M4 512GB SSD

How about the 64bit version... are you going to run tests on it?

Yup, I'll get to it - busy with the 32-bit version ATM.
Don't have high hopes for increased performance on the 64-bit, though, but we'll see.

I used the 64bit versions of Live 9.0b47, and Live 8.4b8 for these test. I tested each version of Live using my Lynx Hilo D/A convertor, and the internal soundcard of the MBP:

Live 9 Beta (Hilo) - 28%
Live 9 Beta (Internal) - 37%

Live 8 beta (Hilo) - 32%
Live 8 beta (Internal) - 40%

How is it on the internal card. I have almost same model, late 2011, 16Gb RAM and I wonder how the better performance of your is due to Duet 2 and how much due to SSD. I plan to replace DVD drive with SSD, but that serious performance difference could make me buy Duet 2.
