I know there are alot of discussions already on performance, and no one answer is going to solve every problem. However - I have not been able to find a discussion that seems to fit my scenario.
Linear Array feature with multiple intersecting cuts.
Rebuild time can take upwards of 2 minutes in some cases.
Array is 20x20 (400 instances)
CPU usage of 13%-15% when rebuilding a part - and no, there is not one CPU topped out at 100%. Graphics card frequency will drop to 50MHz (from 475 MHz) when rebuild is 75% complete.
i7 950 - socket 1366 - OC to hit 4.1GHz (water cooled)
12 GB DDR3 @ 688 MHz
Should I expect better performance?
Are there tips for improving performance - other than remove hyperthreading and checking the use of OpenGL?
