Capture 4.2.1 Work Around

Discussion in 'General Technical Discussion' started by bravocharlie, May 10, 2005.

  1. I ran some tests tonight based on a post on DPReview regarding disabling Hyperthreading on computers with Pentium 4 processors with hyperthreading. http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1021&message=13440909

    Hyperthread Disabled
    42 files saved as TIFF: 8 minutes 28 seconds
    32 files batch processed: 4 minutes 38 seconds

    Hyperthread Enabled
    42 files saved as TIFF: 9 minutes 14 seconds
    32 files batch processed: 6 minutes 0 seconds

    Disabling hyperthreading increases Capture’s (v 4.2.1) performance by 16% faster (batch processing) and 9% faster (saving to TIFF). Also noted was more stable physical memory available without large fluctuations.

    Thanks for doing the comparison.

    I wonder if any comparisons have been done based on CPU speed and RAM size. We know that faster CPU and more RAM are better, but seeing a comparison might push many users to upgrade the systems sooner than later.
