Yes, exactly. That is the right way to thinking about it. It will work on what ever you can load into memory.

I find neat image slower than I'd like for the 6Mega-pixel images my camera produces. I've a friend who uses it on scanned slides that are 100-200MB. I almost pity him... I guess he gets in a lot of reading while he waits.

Eric S, I've used mine with 6Mpix images. They brought out a free upgrade which runs a little faster. I'm on a 1Ghz Athlon with lots of RAM, so I've been wondering what 2.5Ghz, with DDR memory and a 300Mhz Front side Bus would do! The interesting thing about NI is it also seems to clean up JPEG haloing a bit as well. But it's far too slow in my opinion to use regularly, unless you're a 'night shooter'. VOX

I have a 1.8G Athlon with 1/2G of ram (I'll probably go to 1G soon, if not 1.5G) and it's still slower than I'd like. I do often shoot at ISO800, and the noise on that makes it worth it.

I believe its processor bound (not memory bound) so I bet the 2.5G would be worth more than the high FSB. Just a guess, though. I have never run it with the task manager up... I should next time.

Yes, that was my conclusion - the CPU, and maths computation speed rather than graphics and memory transfer. The nice thing about upping RAM to a Gig I've found, is burning CD's rarely produces buffer errors, you can cache the whole source image in RAM and the HD to CD burner swap rarely happens. VOX
