I just went from temporarily using a Windows 7 machine with 4GB of RAM and no video card as far as I know. I'm now using a mac with 16GB of ram, etc. Its a much more powerful machine.
However, QGis's georeferencer program runs about 8 times faster on the windows machine. Does anyone know why this is?
Gimp ran much faster too on the cheap windows machine.
- 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7
- 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
- OSX Version 10.9.5
- MacBook Pro Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014
- Solid State Hard Drive
- 4GB RAM
- Windows 7
- Data on External Hard Drive (non-flash)
I'm guessing its something related to the fact that videogames tend to run better on windows platforms, viz. more time has been put into the win32 software graphics engines to display real time graphics..
