Hm then I think the surprising difference for one core is caused by the type of audio interface: USB still has serious amount of cpu overhead, while I use firewire (on macos), which has very little overhead. I set my cpu timing to “turbo” in the bios, I don’t know if that means overclocked, but it shows the cpu type typical frequencies in the OS.
I think next time I really will buy such an AMD cpu. Also supported by hackintosh btw.
Hehe, who knows what they come up with next at AMD…And really, it is not surprising at all, as I´ve mentioned, the single core speed of the TR 1950X is equal to the I7 4XXX CPUs, just that you get 16 cores + 16 HT threads on the TR 1950X compared to “just” 4 or 6 (8 / 12) on the I7 CPUs Also, there are differences in the compiler/efficiency how certain commands are translated for the CPU (and AMD Threadripper is not fully supported by the compilers yet, so as soon as this happens, speeds will get even better too). But you can hunt me with anything *tosh, I am all Windows and hate MAC´s + Apple, haha
Macbook 2020 M1 “normal” lol
dither off 90% warning
rane 72 soundcard
some limited amount of backround processes, about 10% maybe 20% of one cpu, normal usage situation
latency 01 8 cpu core = 217
latency 10 8 cpu core = PASS ALL 256 max 70%
latency 10 1cpu core= 95
And real live comparision vs 2012 mid macbook. Orchestral project that i needed to render parts and use renders, freeze etc, in native mode with only few bridged plugins is around 40%cpu and a lot lower latency.
Since the 3.3 test was made after i did the 3.4 test i re-ran the 3.4 test in which it passed with 8 cpu and 100ms… Which has lead me to belive it might have been an unlycky coincidence where the scan of midi-devices occured at about track 249 the last time…
that’s exactly why i wanted to get one in the first place.
this CPU is totally bonkers in terms of single-threaded performance, especially since you can easily let it boost to 5.5-5.7Ghz for single core usage and take back the clock and voltage for heavy load (4+ threads).
perfect for renoise and realtime audio in general.
1 core: 97 RPTS
2 cores: 177 RTPS
3 cores: 256 RTPS
10: cores: all passed with peak of 55%
Indeed that Intel CPU has an impressive single core performance. But keep in mind that M1Pro is a mobile cpu, and the fan did not even seem to have kicked in. Maybe this is a sign that Renoise still could use the M1Pro even more efficiently. This performance is more than enough for me. I understand though that Apple is not attractive for a lot of people and always comes with annoying compromises. I wonder how your CPU would perform under macos/hackintosh, since after reading the numbers here, it seems to me that the macos Renoise actually can perform a bit better than the Windows version…?
