Jitter on Intel observation


    Apr 15 2006 | 4:44 pm
    Running latest max/jitter under emulation on a macbook 2ghz.
    While CPU operations seems to run dandy (at least as well as my
    1.25ghz g4, probably better), as soon as I move into the world of GPU
    and the jit.gl stuff, patches slow to a crawl. i also noticed this
    while doing some simple stuff with jit.catch~ and jit.poke~
    Anyone else notice this, or am I imagining things? Also, out of
    curiosity, assume there's a good, technical and in-depth reason for
    the slowdown to happen here. Could I get teh bullet point version?
    Thanks

      Unsure of the exact reasons, but my simple tests with Rosetta were
      typically pretty slow (won't be spending much time researching any
      issues here). Mach-O universal binary coming in the relatively near
      future, providing near G5 desktop levels of performance. Thanks for
      your patience in the meantime.
