I'm thrilled to read these numbers for Mac users. Anyone using the beta on a Powerbook G4/800 and have numbers handy?

might be an idea to hold off on this for the moment, they said in the last beta that CPU overhead will have gone up up to 10% because they've included a bug report function which they will take out before the release......

Hi all.

Software version: Live 3.04
Computer: IBM r40 1.5 gHz centrino laptop w. 256 megs of ram.
Soundcard: M-Audio Firewire 410
Driver: 5.10
Sample- and bitrate: 44100 / 24
BufferSize: 128 samples (5 ms out+ 3 ms in = 8ms of latency)

Idle: 2-3 percent
Max: 7 percent

Same specs but:
Sample- and bitrate: 96000 / 24
BufferSize: 128 samples (now 3 ms out + 1 ms in = 4 ms of latency)

Idle: 6 percent
Max: 17 percent

I get roughly the same percentages on asio4all, but not the same level of stability

Does anyone here work with live in 96khz? Because this test assured me, that I need some pretty persuasive arguments to do it :wink:

Power Book Pismo G3 500Mhz vs. iMac G4 800 Mhz
Live 4.0b3 vs. Live 3.0.4

Make of computer: Apple Power Book G3 500Mhz "Pismo"
Operating system: OS X 10.3.4
CPU Speed: 500Mhz G3
Soundcard: Internal

Result for test 1: 1% (Live 4.0b3) 10%(Live 3.0.4)
Result for test 2: 38%(Live 4.0b3) 45% (Live 3.0.4)

Make of computer: Apple iMac G4 800Mhz (Flat Panel)
Operating system: OS X 10.3.4
CPU Speed: 800 Mhz G4
Soundcard: Internal

Result for test 1: 7% (Live 4.0b3) 11%(Live 3.0.4)
Result for test 2: 39% (Live 4.0b3) 42%(Live 3.0.4)

The buffersize is 256 in out latency 6+6=12
As you can see PowerBook G3 500 performs on pair or even better
when idle than iMac G4 800Mhz ...strange.
Seems that Beta 4 performs better on G3 than on G4...
what do you think?
