What is happening? I thought that this infamous problem was solved
DAWBench removes Cubase/Nuendo from all tests soon because “their engine being essentially broken with AG Off , on any system above 6 Cores.”
So I’m testing Cubase 10.0.50 with AMD Ryzen 7 1700 (8/16) on Windows 1909.
Testing conditions: 44.1 kHz, ASIO buffer size 128. With ASIO Guard turned OFF Cubase can load something like 90 copies of SGA1566, with ASIO Guard turned ON it can load 160 copies of SGA1566, resulting in 83% CPU load, but somehow someway this result is the same for 128 and 1024 buffer - new Cubase versions cannot use 100% of CPU’s power for some reason (am I doing something wrong??). I was able to hit 100% CPU usage with Cubase 9.0 and ASIO Guard turned on old Windows 10 in this exact test with SGA1566, but today I can’t reach that number.
Looks like I’m facing the exact problem DAWBench described.
Help, please. I want to use 100% of my CPU power, not like 83%.
