I have been wondering about the 9.5 CPU efficiency several times already.
After bying a new music PC with an actual Coffee Lake 6-core CPU (32 GB RAM), I had hoped to have enough CPU headroom for my Cubase projects. While that is the case generally, I was completely shocked to find out that one single fat Serum pad, using up around one third of my CPU according to the Cubase meter in version 9.0, was hitting the CPU top level on 9.5, even causing casual spikes with distorted audio.
From the various CPU threads in this forum I get no clear picture about the CPU efficiency of 9.5 compared to 9. But what I experienced with Serum, practically makes 9.5 completely unuseable for me, if it generally is such an inefficient CPU hog.
Any explanation what’s going on there?
Any remedy in sight with future 9.5 versions?
