6 core AMD fx 6200. NVIDIA, GTX 650, 1 TB Seagate ST1000DM1003 SATA Drive, 8 Gb Ram.
Pretty average specs, but hoped that VS would be more responsive when switching to it.
Just uninstalled VS2010 Pro where there was a lag with one project. It uses Git, wxwidgets and Boost. Boost is particularly heavy on the filesystem as it contains 75,000 files!
Upgraded to VS2015 RTM -it's still laggy when switching to it, especially with the large project, although pretty good once the app is in focus. The lag might be just a hardware limitation. Upped the settings for it in Process Lasso. Just curious as to the deal with Memory Priority. Would "Normal" be the highest setting?
Edit: VS relies on H/W acceleration so created a GPU 3D profile in NVIDIA CP for maximum performance,
Any suggestions on better performance?
