We would actually need to be contacted by users experiencing issues, as far as I know we have been seeing a performance degradation only on one system in-house. Although it was very useful taking performance traces on that one, it's best to analyse more systems, as this could help to understand which combinations trigger an issue.Headlands wrote:For the few of you here that experience Cubase using CPU power as efficiently as other DAWs, I would ask you get in touch with Steinberg support and tell them your setups in detail -- that could help the many users (if this and other forums such as Gearslutz and KVR are any evidence) that are experiencing the opposite. Windows or Mac, I and plenty of others have Cubase falling way behind DAWs like Pro Tools and Reaper, especially.
Would not be really useful to analyse a system like the one used for this test as it shows consistent performance across DAWs: viewtopic.php?f=226&t=93206#p519220
We have a few tasks related to performance open, at least one should already be included in 8.5.20 (this mostly relates to levelling the performance across systems IIRC), but it's an on-going process - the more data we get, the better.
