I am running a Win7 64bit system with a scratch drive that is RAID0 SSD, OS is Raptor 150 drive, and the images get captured/written to a Intel server on the network.
I have 16GB RAM, and even moved my system folder to the scrath drive to make it faster on my Quad 3.6Ghz Intel machine.
C1 is just sooo slow. Why!?...Why oh Why??
Apps that I usually run along my workflow are Adobe Bridge, ACDSee Pro3, and Photoshop CS5, usually a Web page, and sometimes remotely logged into another computer for email.
Why does C1 work in super slow motion when I want to switch frome image to image, and then focus takes longer.
On another system, I run C1 v6 and v3.78 on Duo single core 3.6Ghz, 4gb ram, Win Xp pro machine. V6 takes LONG to show the image after I release the shutter from my Phase back (22mpix) images take at least 3 seconds or 5 seconds longer to show up (I notice v6 applied settings from previous adjustment (which is not too vital besides White balance set. I think v3.78 also does this). 3.78 is so much more nimble. I press the shutter button, and within a couple sec the image is ready to view. Focus panning around is also much faster. these are the BASIC needs in capture and preview for ANYONE doing photo work....I would think?
This leads me to believe that the software itself, although 64bit, using 16GB of RAM, is slower than the old 3.78 that is using only some of 4GB of ram on a single core system. The systems I have and use for photo, I don't have junk software on, not that my other systems do, but I am very strict about what gets on these systems to keep them lean and with minimal clutter. I have had another set of SSD drive I plan on using for the OS in RAID 0 with a imaged backup, and just have not thought it worth the trouble with the C1 acting so slow.
For some reason ACRaw, although the latest update, only sees the Tif preview file from my Phase captures and I can't use it to process, even though I prefer C1, but wouldn't give it a second thought as the speed is almost night and day.
Anyone have some ideas? I tried to be informative of my setup so people with some knowledge can make some suggestions. I also have 2 30" displays that are on the system for editing.
