Hi All, I am looking to upgrade my system as the performance is just not there since C8 was released. I have the common problem of CPU spikes and performance meters being way higher than they were for same setup in C7. Problem may have crept in at C7.5?
I basically run the vast majority of tracks using VST instruments. The main ones being Omnisphere 2, Ultimate 10 stuff, Korg Legacy and Steinbergs stuff.I have added a UltraNova and a Virus Snow to try relieve so of the stress on CPU. But find using external gear a bit of a faff on.
I was considering either Asus X79 Pro with 3930k or Asus X99 Pro with 6850K. If i go with X79 i can basically just swap out MB and CPU as I have 32GB of DDR3 RAM. If i go with the X99 I will need new RAM on top of the already more expensive X99 MB and CPU.
I dont really want to upgrade if i am not going to see a big benefit.
What I would love to hear from you guys is if you are running either of the above or similar with large projects, say 32 tracks of VST and 8 Audio without any issues.
I also think it would be a great idea on this forum to have a section showing performance against downloadable projects.
I realise we all have different gear but we all have the basic Steinberg stuff. We could then see how our systems are performing and look for trends in motherboards and cpu combinations. Just a thought.
