I just got my new workstation up, and kicking!
IM is so effective in useing hardware I´m serious impressed.
2x240gb Kingston SSD´s, lots of ram/3gb GTX 580, and a I7-2700k at 4.9 GHz is makeing a joy out of even the Wellington 1m data, with roads everything
The SSD thing is most important, even if hurts in the wallet ha ha.
I´m so facinated by this software, it´s very adaptive to huge datasets if hardware enough, I used Cityscape a lot, and IM is holding up just fine..
I miss driveing a car though , it is very useful for line of sight testing.
Great feedback! Really important to know what kind of hardware is working for folks.
I made one mistake with the SSD´s!, installed it all in IDE mode, confident I could fix AHCI mode later, via regedit etc, or bootcommands.
Nope!!, bluescreen whatever I did when enabled it, so 3 more days of installing Os etc, I´m back to what I wanted finally.
It´s not the speed, it´s the handeling of many small files ver large files so on, and many other stuff I needed.
Raid is not needed if lot´s ram, so very happy with 1 for OS/programfiles, 1 for users/documents.
This I forgot to post on the wall when was impatient to use my old IDE OS.
So take Care when leave your IDE Life behind.
