beta....on more 'underpowered' machines?

Post by dpkni1 » Mon Jun 20, 2005 6:55 am

A question for all you lucky Live5 beta testers out anybody using a older laptop to do their testing on?

Im using a P3 thinkpad, 800mhz, 256mb ram at the moment, (i know i know, serioulsy underpowered!) and am wondering if anyone is using a comparable machine and how Live5 is performing on it? I use this laptop more for 'live' then production so would be great if a few crew were testing Live's new mixing tools, but am curious all the same of any info. you've got on live5 on older machines!

as i posted in another thread, i've seen a HUGE performance increase with Live 5 (20-25% on every project). So you'll be able to run it im sure...

However, it uses an absolute shitload of RAM, which I hope will vanish when it goes release...

That seems odd to me, because I noticed a real decrease in Live 5's CPU meter from Live 4. It seems more eddiecient here!

Also there's the new freeze feature of course, which will be a real asset on an older machine, I'm sure.
