Studio 13 PC Configuration Recommendation
It's time to buy a new PC for Articulate development. Despite already having 16GB of RAM in the current PC, the wait time for publishing is still a really big problem.
I can buy the biggest baddest PC in town but I am sure that I would just be throwing money away on some unnecessary features. The question is what hardware features really improves Articulate publishing time?
Memory vs. disk vs. video cards vs number of CPUs vs. CPU speed?
The minimum system recommendations are a joke as we are all well beyond that. I am wondering if anyone has experience with going to solid state drives.
Do I7 CPU's really do something amazing?
Does anyone know if a particularly video card somehow kicks the publishing into higher gear?
I estimate that the current time waste per day due to time spent publishing and republishing is 2-3 hours a day at least so its worth spending money on but I am not interested in throwing $ away or potentially buying some souped up video card that actually makes matters worse.
Recommendations from Articulate are not forthcoming. What say other users? This is actually an important topic and I believe that it would be worthy of Articulate to spend a couple of days doing some controlled benchmarks to understand the software better if they haven't already.
