Slow performance on Win7 X64 - Large Files

Postby ianc » Mon Jun 20, 2011 8:37 pm

Hi Folks,

I searched on 'X64 performance' but didn't turn up much, so here I go:

I've been running XNView for years with great results. Most recently I was running it on XP SP3 X86 on an Intel Core2 Duo with 2 GB of RAM and it was quite fast.

However, I've now upgraded to an i5 2500K with 8 GB of RAM and have Win7 SP1 X64 installed. The HD's are the same 3 GB/s SATA, and the display adapter is a 640 MB Geforce 8800 GTS (if that matters).

Performance with smaller pictures is still adequate, but I'm now seeing MUCH slower performance on larger images (~3400x3400) than before. It is taking about 2-3 sec each to load these images, which is really starting to get to me. These same images loaded very quickly (almost instantly) under X86 XP.

I was initially running 1.96, so updated to 1.98, but that didn't help matters I'm afraid. I do have thumbnail caching enabled, and thumbnail are quite fast; it is just the full image that is VERY slow to display...

Any suggestion to improve Performance? I didn't see an X64 version avaiable for download... Thanks for any help,

Ian

Yes, I was originally running 1.96 on the Core2 Duo machine, then used the same installation after upgrading to Win7 X64 by copying it. When I had trouble, I upgraded to 1.98 on the Win7 machine; but it didn't help.

Do you use option/Fullscreen>Use delayed high quality?


Yes, this was enabled by default. I tried turning it off and on and changing the value to 4000 pixels, but it didn't help... I have also in the interim upgraded from the Geforce 8800 GTS to a GTX 460 1 GB, but that didn't help either...

Thanks for your help!

Yes, in the full-screen view mode. When I initially click on a large image in the browser, the delay is noticeable. The image loads, and when I use my mouse wheel to scroll to the next image in the folder, there is a 2-4 second delay before the image displays on the screen,

Under the cache selections, 'Read one image ahead', and 'Keep current image in cache' are both checked...

I copied over the entire installation directory, including the .ini file... :(

Yep, it is the same 2-4 sec delay for the image to open as just scrolling in the full screen view...

I mean that if I double click on an image to view it full screen then scroll the mouse wheel to view the next image, I see the same 2-4 second delay as if I use File|open to select and view an image. Isn't that what you were asking? If not, please clarify...

Anti virus scanner?


I'm not running one. I have the default Windows Defender included with Win7 installed, but that's it...
