Latencymon shows way better result for my old Surface Pro than it does to my newly purchased gaming laptop. Can someone please explain to me why this is the case and what it really means? I’m really not that good at computer technology.
The Surface Pro specs:
i5-4300 1.90GHz - 2.5GHz
Windows 10 Home x64
No audio interface
I didn’t tweak anything in this machine for performance.
My new Dell 7577
i7-7700HQ 2.80GHz - 2.81 GHz ( I disabled Turbo Boost)
Windows 10 Home x 64
I did quite a few performance tweaks for this machine, most of which are listed on Steinberg website. I also disabled some unnecessary drivers, such as the NVIDIA graphic driver and Realtek Audio driver.
How does the high latency reported by Latencymon actually affect music production work on the Dell? Most of the time it hovers around 35-125 while occasionally peaking at 700-800, and as high as 2000. Does it mean I’ll be able to load less VSTs, or will experience pops and crackles, or something else? And is it low enough that I can stop worrying about it, or is there something wrong that I should investigate further?
Thanks for reading
