I have been using Cubase 5.1 for a some years ago. Somedays ago I bought a new PC and I’m having performance problems wich I don’t see the point since I have improved both: OS and hardware. The fact is that at Cubase’s navigation bar (F2) performance indicator seems to have gone crazy, going up and down even while playback is stopped.
To make an accurate test, I set the same settings in my sound’s card latency (TC Electronics Konnekt 6) and the performance difference is very large. This are my PCs:
ASUS P5Q Pro-L
Intel Core2Duo 6750
RAM: 4GB Kingston DDR2
Seagate 500gb SATA2
SO: Windows 7 64 bits
AsRock H87 Pro4
Intel i5 4570
RAM: 8GB DDR3 G-Skillz
Western Digital 1TB SATA3
SO: Windows 8.1 Professional 64bits
Something strange is happening because as I said, performance indicator in Cubase seems to have gone crazy going up and down (from 60% to 20% - 30% back to 50%, itchy red …)
Anyone have an idea of what can be happening?
Thank you and sorry about my english
