I’m thinking of upgrading my i7 920 computer from 2009 with Cubase 6.5 to a new one with Cubase 9.5 because it’s getting really slow and the VST performance peaks all the time when the projects are getting large. But I’m not really sure how much performance I need to run big projects with many instrument tracks.
Do you have any recommendations for which processor, motherboard, RAM and SSD drive that would suitable? For processor I have looked at Intel Coffe Lake i7 but I’m sure I need that much performance. On the otherhand, I don’t want to end up in the same situation as today. For RAM I’m thinking that 16 GB DDR4 should be enough. Motherboard and SSD I’m not really sure of.
