Re: C3D 2012 RAM speed versus response time

amd is faster than intel on something really?

i went home tortured my 3930k oc'ed to 5.0ghz. stable for like 20 minutes, then playing with civil 3d got blue screen. already at 1.608v. temp is only 70 though. not worth it. 4.5ghz is 1.368v only and 3.8ghz is 1.28v. good processor though.


2013 corridor is much faster than 2012. at least after delete superelevation corridor is ok. even with superelevation it is not bad like in 2012. wait for 2014 and get company to upgrade.


lucky you to play with computer hardware everyday. my dream job. right now just building computers for friends for free. so much planning because they are on budget and want to play games lol.

yes, playing with computer hardware was fun, but that phase of my experiment is over and now I get to play with c++ everyday - I have had 2013 installedfor awhile but only use it to browse the corridor model. This week I need to update a large design change with a retaining wall so i will see the performance difference from the 2012 version
