Re: Everyone, what Graphics Card are you using?

Oh - my mistake. Not CPU, it's one core on 100%
Starting verve puts idle to 12-16% CPU usage.
ONe core is on almost 100%, at my test in this minute there are two cores (maybe one HT) on 90-100%
Without drawing.

Re: Everyone, what Graphics Card are you using?

Hmmh, i noticed something like that too actually ... When Verve is minimized the workload drops to zero.
When Verve is activ but idle, i have one core at 100% and another at ~60%, pretty much stabil 16% use.
Then, when i apply paint with either of the brushes between #2 and #5 the load actually drops to 12% for as long as i apply paint, then goes back to 16% when i release.
Brushes #1,#6,#7 and #8 increase the load during drawing to 18%.
Having the canvas liquifyed ([d]) or not does not seem to make a difference.
The one core at 100% doesn't seem to care no matter what i do.

Just saying, i ofcause do not mind my CPU working, to me this means that there are 80% wasted that should be doin even more crazyness :lol:

(The image shows 1st Verve idling and 2nd Verve while drawing with brush #2 (sorry for huge))
Edit: (i run a Intel Core i7 X990 @ 3.47GHz)

Re: Everyone, what Graphics Card are you using?

Yeah, I wonder what that is, too. In a way I do understand, but it's tough for me to regulate that, because of the fluids. They want to run the whole time, you know, but if I let them, they'll do just that... run run run... if I didn't, they'd just stall. It could very well be, that if I used a proper windows event hook, I could change all that. But it'll be another major rework to fit that in. I'll do it eventually, yet, I'm not exactly sure, if that would change anything about that. :?
AH well...just a bit of power consumption, hehe! :oops:

By the way, that's a very encouraging information about the macbook pro and bootcamp! Thanks, Stavros! :)

AMD Radeon r7 260x

Back in verve v.99e I mentioned all the errors I had using this card, I can report now that it works perfectly (just tried v.99r) :D

Re: Everyone, what Graphics Card are you using?

I have a mid 2012 macbook pro 15 inch running win8 in bootcamp. Here are the deets my computer belched out when I commanded it to do so! Verve runs pretty well so far, I have largely only been playing around with it at the default start-up res and everything seems snappy and no real lag. I think any little issues I may have from time to time are the fault of Windows and it's utterly woeful support for high DPI screens! I run verve windowed at 2880 x 1800. The fan has fun while verve is running, but so do I :D :D :D

Ooo, whilst on the subject, I forgot to ask if any of these settings could be tweaked to doll Verve up even more than she already is! :geek:

Re: Everyone, what Graphics Card are you using?

Suddenly I appreciate the 3 settings you can adjust on the Intel HD 4000 in expert mode, hahahaha! :lol:
Well, I don't know and I don't think you can improve the performance with changing these settings, but you may try and then let us know!? :D
