ive just got a lenovo thinkpad I7-7700HQ laptop with 32 gig ram, 512GB SSD. The idea was to be able to work on fully loaded projects seamlessly between my studio PC and and on the go with the laptop. (desktop PC is an I7-6700K, with 16gig ram)
The performance on the laptop is terrible - I took a project from the studio PC and tested it on the thinkpad - the performance meter in cubase goes mental (average load) and audio stutters (basically its unusable) and that was only on a medium sized project.
ive made sure all the drivers etc are up to date on the laptop, and that its set to the steinberg power scheme, etc - so im really not sure what else to do.I notice that my desktop processor is clocked at 4.00ghz, where as the thinkpad is 2.80ghz. Would that be the difference in performance? I dont know enough about it (can you overclock a laptop?)
Surely a 7-7700HQ, with 32 gig ram should be able to handle big projects?
Im going to send the machine back if i cant get it sorted, really annoying though because ive spent hours setting it up and swapping licences over etc.
