I am trying to set up my new laptop with Cubase 7.06. The Laptop is an Asus g750 with an Intel i7 4700HQ 2,4 ghz, 8GB Ram, Nvidia GTX 770M Graphics. The problem is high cpu load with both short term and average meter on the Cubase VST performance meter spiking to the top resulting in pops and crackles. The same time the performance monitor in Windows 8 shows an overall CPU usage of 9-10% with an even load on all 4 cores
This happens running a pretty clean Project with only one instance of Halion5 going .
CPU load on my old system is about 10-15% in the Windows monitor and only slightly higher in the Cubase VST performance monitor running the same project. (My 6 year old pc)
Tried so far;
Updated to Win 8,1
Tried two different USB soundcards
Tried the generic ASIO driver
with no difference…
Anyone experienced similar problems?
