Compile and Launch Time

Hi All,

 

This isn't really a code question but rather more on what you are using (PC spec) to compile your code.

 

I'm a road warrior that code...so my specs are the following:

Machine: IBM ThinkPad x60

Processor: Duo Core T2300 @ 1.66 GHz

Memory: 1.5 Gig of RAM.

 

From building 3 project to launching on OS 4.2.1 using 8800 Simulator, total time is about 3 to 4 minutes. If it is the 9000 simulator, the time is 5 mins plus.

 

I'm thinking about switching to desktop, what do you developers use out there? 

 

Thanks.

Re: Compile and Launch Time

my computer is 2gb ram on a desktop and I haven't seen any thing so superior comparing to the times you are getting. Mine is probably like 2 mins with the 9000 simulator, and really long with some other simulators. Basically the compile and run time is just **bleep** slow.

Re: Compile and Launch Time

I guess 2 mins beats what I'm getting. Would love to get it down even lower though. Wondering if a more powerful processor would do the trick or just more memory... of course, i think more power and memory would not hurt Smiley Happy

 

Thanks for sharing kemdada.
