    Will the new EWQL Play engine improve performance on old PC?

    I still have a pretty old P4, 3GHZ, 3 GB RAM, Win XP, Nuendo2.

    Will the new EWQL Play engine improve the performance on my old PC?

    Thanks.

    I you need 2 or more processors for the multi-threading to work. I would post this on the EW forums

    Hi HC,

    I too am using an older PC setup - Pent 4 , 3.4GHz and 2 Gigs of ram. ( althought I have a bigger computer I'm switching to)

    And there's a big improvement in CPU performance with 1.2.0

    I'm able to load 8 / 9 instruments from Storm Drum and still a low CPU hit.

    But they still have some issues to iron out with 1.2.0.

    You can check it out at the Sounds Online Forum under support.

    So it is still better even using old system??

    The reason I am asking this is because my system right now is pretty stable, I have the old EWQLSO Gold & EWQLSC, and they run just fine.
    I will not upgrade my PC for quite sometime in the future so I don't want to run into nightmare after upgrading to Play engines.

    Btw, what kind of issue still they are having with 1.2?

    No.
    What chip do you have? If it's a single core forget it.
    Play is an advanced program, you need at least a dual or quad core with a minimum of 3 gigs ram, 8 gigs would be better.
