Let's test and compare..... G5 vs. Inte

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
I'm wondering if anyone is running 7.2 on a intel Mac yet? I would love to hear how the intel chip performs w/ Logic compared to the G5.
Also I think it would be a great idea if someone w/ the know how and capability could post a Logic prodject song file loaded to the teeth and everyone could use it as a base to test performance..... like comparing a G5 dual2.0 to a iMac intel dual 2.0........
24 tracks w/ 24 space designers on my G5 2.0 w/ 1.5 gig of RAM
22 tracks /w 21 space designers on my Intel iMac dual 2.0 w/ 1.5 gig of RAM
PowerBook G4 1gig   Mac OS X (10.4.4)   768 mb DDR SDRAM
PowerBook G4 1gig   Mac OS X (10.4.4)   768 mb DDR SDRAM

The Best Answer

I'm interested in this kind of test too!
I suggest the following settings:
Sample buffer size: 128
Universal Track Mode ON
A 44.1 kHz, 24 bit stereo track played with the default setting of Space Designer as the only insert
Do not use the Autoload, but a clean song (alt + New Song)
Driver: Internal audio (various drivers may cause different CPU load)
Method: Add one track at a time until an overload message appears (just copy the samee region one track downwards, and insert the same plugin without chosing any presets)
In case it matters:
Max number of audio tracks: 64
64 busses OFF
Larger Disk Buffer ON
Software monitoring OFF
Process buffer range: Medium
Rewire behavior: Playback mode
Only one window open (the arrange window)
No other applications open
If everybody are using these settings, all that needs to be reported is computer model, RAM and the maximum achieved tracks one gets without an overload message.
Test results could be posted from people who don't have an Intel Mac yet as well.

  • Using a Comparator to Compare Comparables Update:10-11

    I have a class which can wrap Comparable objects. The idea is similar to C++'s "Pair" class. Until recently, it worked fine. Then, I "fixed" an unchecked warning I found and I can't seem to get the thing to work now. A good sample of t

  • Generic Comparator problem Update:10-11

    Hi! In our code we use Comparator, but can not make it work with generics. The only way is to insert cast in some places, but that destroy the point in using generics in the first place. Basically we have a superclass Foo and child classes FooA, FooB
