    boc61, I bet it would improve or perform better with Windows 10.

    I will get Windows 10 when I get a new machine. This one is staying on 7.

    Very interesting site. I guess that explains why, what I thought was a pretty good system, is in fact not all that great after all. Up to now I was getting pretty disillusioned with T:ANE and what I perceived to be it's poor performance vs. TS12, when in fact it looks like it is my PC that is to blame.

    UserBenchmarks: Game 21%, Desk 45%, Work 19%

    CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 - 66.7%
    GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6770 - 15.4%
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB - 46.4%
    RAM: Samsung M378B2873FH0-CH9 4x1GB - 51.3%
    MBD: Dell XPS 8300

    Quick Specs: I am running Windows 10 Home 64-bit (upgrade from Win 7 Home Premium). My CPU speed is 3.1GHz and I have 4GB RAM. TS12 Build is 61388, T:ANE Build is 82718. DX9 is installed per instructions elsewhere in this forum.

    In some testing I did recently on my rather large D&H route, the same scene renders in TS12 at 24.4FPS and in T:ANE at 15.8FPS. And that's after a lot of fiddling with various T:ANE settings so as to create what I believed to be a 'fair' comparison - out of the box it was in the mid single digits.

    Am I wrong to think that T:ANE should perform better than TS12, even with the hardware I have?

    In any case, many thanks to the OP for this useful link.

    Regards,
    -Mike

    Ok, but you know it is FREE right now, right? Just a suggestion.

    Don't care. Don't want it.

    I'd be a bit careful with the statement about expectation. Just because you have nice values in a benchmark it doesn't necessarily mean it is also true for a different software product. If you followed the recent discussion about Time Spy benchmark and async compute you know what I mean.
    Also there is such a variety of options and asset configurations that impact performance. How a generic benchmark would consider those? I guess most noticed some sessions have good performance, but suddenly other routes .... a not so good one.
    I think the only real indication about performance to expect in TANE can be done by an in-game benchmark or performance analysis tools

    For some reason, I have to unplug my IoMega USB drive for this benchmark, otherwise it hangs on the last test. Having said that:

    Code:
    UserBenchmarks: Game 31%, Desk 51%, Work 38%
    CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 - 70.8%
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 560 Ti-OEM - 28.7%
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 2TB - 56.3%
    RAM: Kingston KP382H-HYC 4x4GB - 49%
    MBD: Dell XPS 8300
    About par with my expectations. I guess if I were to upgrade this fossil (it's about 5 years old), an SSD and newer GTX graphics card would be my options. I might go for a new machine altogether next year anyway.

    T:ANE runs fine, however that is WITHOUT shadows - shadows sadly sink my FPS to slide show speeds. (Oh, and I have 2 GTX550Ti cards in SLI)

    EDIT: SLI was disabled, so for yuks I ran it again:

    UserBenchmarks: Game 21%, Desk 43%, Work 31%
    CPU: AMD FX-6350 Six-Core - 50.9%
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 550-Ti - 16.9%

    HDD: WD WD4000KS-00MNB0 400GB - 29.2%
    USB: Generic Flash Disk 8GB - 4.3%
    RAM: Unknown 1866 CL10 Series 2x8GB - 46.8%
    MBD: MSI 970 GAMING (MS-7693)

    In "Gaming Mode"

    UserBenchmarks: Game 22%, Desk 43%, Work 32%
    CPU: AMD FX-6350 Six-Core - 54.6%
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 550-Ti - 17.1%

    RAM: Unknown 1866 CL10 Series 2x8GB - 47.3%
    MBD: MSI 970 GAMING (MS-7693)

    (Didn't change much...)

    Don't laugh please...

    UserBenchmarks: Game 11%, Desk 17%, Work 12%
    CPU: AMD E1-2100 APU - 8.4%
    GPU: AMD HD 8210 - 2.1%
    HDD: Toshiba MQ01ABF050 500GB - 47%
    RAM: Kingston TSB16D3LS1KBG/4G 1x4GB - 12.7%
    MBD: Toshiba Satellite C55D-A


    I push this laptop to its limits with TS12 on fairly low settings, still with mediocre results. I'm working on saving up for a new PC for T:ANE, but that will take some time.

    I can't say the summary is too far off. For the CPU, I was given this...

    With an extremely low single core score, this CPU can barely handle email and light web browsing. Finally, with a gaming score of 8.42%, this CPUs suitability for 3D gaming is terrible.
    Web browsing on this rig is horrible, even though it's not very old and pretty clean and virus-free. Don't try going to any websites using sophisticated HTML5 stuff, it will hang and require a hard restart. I really don't know what Toshiba and AMD were thinking.

    For graphics, I was told this...

    2.06% is too low to play 3D games or use CAD packages. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
    Somehow TS12 works. It doesn't work well, but it works. I had a Lenovo laptop with very similar specs to this one. It was less than a year old when the motherboard burned up while I was playing CitiesXL.

    Hopefully, I won't have to use this PC much longer.

    Well, my HDD failed this week on me so I was forced into getting a new drive. I went with an SDD and improved my benchmark a little...

    Code:

    Installed my new Asus ROG Strix OC GTX 1070 last night and took T:ANE for a spin on some of my most demanding routes.
    Not sure if I have optimised T:ANE yet for the new card (I left the settings the same as for my replaced Asus R9-280X DC2-TOP) so that I could experience any difference, but there was certainly a distinct and perceptible improvement in framerates and responsiveness.
    System temperatures were way lower and the new card never broke into a sweat whilst running T:ANE sessions at between 47 FPS (lowest observed) and 420 FPS (Highest) with an average over 150 FPS most of the time. (Most of the time the fans don't run on this card unless you're really pushing it along, so it is much quieter than my old 280X, especially at idle.) TDP difference is huge, with the new card much more efficient, using half as much power and generating much less heat under load.

    Encouraged, I ran the UserBenchmarks test with the following results:

    UserBenchmarks: Game 115%, Desk 101%, Work 77%
    CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K - 96.6%
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070 - 135.7%
    SSD: Samsung 850 Evo 250GB - 117.3%
    SSD: Adata S510 60GB - 46.4%
    HDD: WD Re 3TB (2012) - 84.4%
    USB: Seagate Desktop 1TB - 14%
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 C9 4x4GB - 61.4%
    MBD: Asus Z97-A

    Found this to be a useful pointer to what I need to replace/ upgrade next. Going to USB 3 on my backup drive (currently the Seagate Desktop USB 2.0 with a woeful 14% performance on this benchmark) should help and I nearly replaced my D: Drive ADATA SSD with another Samsung EVO SSD yesterday (with a higher capacity than my C: Drive) but that can wait a while whilst I sort out the components I need for an entirely new machine next year.

    In the meantime, I'm loving my new GPU and am keen to learn what other tricks it can play.
