Recommended rip system

Onyx Version:
5,6,10
Printer(s):
L25500, JV3, JV4

I'm getting ready to get a new pc for running productionhouse 7. I run 2 mimaki printers so I am ripping and printing at the same time while running preflight. Should I run a faster dual core or a medium speed quad core processor? Does vista work ok with onyx or should I stick to xp? Multiple hard drives?

I did try onyx on my mac pro running xp on a seperate drive and it seemed to use all four processors well and ran very solid.

If anyone has opinions I would appreciate them.

In our July news letter we published the following recommendations. (Below)

(BTW... My profiling machine I use in the Onyx Lab is an Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.13Ghz, 4Gb mem, Vista 64)

ONYX recommends the following Minimum System Configuration for all ONYX Products
• 2.13GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
• 2GB DDR2 667 MHz Memory
• 74GB SATA Disk Drive C: for OS and Application
• 74GB SATA Disk Drive D: for Temporary Processed Data Storage
Achieve greater speed increases by using the Optimal System Configuration for all ONYX Products
• 2 Intel Dual-Core XEON 3.2 GHz Processors
• 4GB DDR2 667MHz Fully-Buffered ECC RAM
• Four 74GB, 10,000 RPM SATA Disk Drives
- One for OS and Application
- One for Temporary Data Processing (Bandhome)
- One for output device 1
- One for output device 2
- Note: Add additional drives for additional output devices
To characterize this, a third-party independent test group compared RIP times between ONYX version 6.5 Rev 3 on a brand new system running minimum requirements to ONYX version 7.1.0 on the same system. The group then tested ONYX version 7.1.0 on a system built by an independent hardware vendor as an optimized system.
Each file was printed individually without color correction applied. They determined that significant RIP speed improvements were possible when using the latest version of the ONYX software on the Optimal System Configuration.
They achieved speeds up to 5x faster when using just an optimized system and 7.1. They achieved
speeds up to 20x faster when using the latest version of software on the optimal system.
ONYX recommends the following in order to get the greatest RIP speed:
• Use the most recent version of ONYX software (ONYX v7.2 on line release is August 1st)
• Use the Optimal System Configuration
• 2 Intel Dual-Core XEON 3.2 GHz Processors
We would love to hear your feedback on our newsletter. Please contact marketing@onyxgfx.com with any comments or suggestions.
• 4GB DDR2 667MHz Fully-Buffered ECC RAM
• Four 74GB, 10,000 RPM SATA Disk Drives
- One for OS and Application
- One for Temporary Data Processing (Bandhome)
- One for output device 1
- One for output device 2
- Note: Add additional drives for additional output devices
• Optimize your software configuration
- Configure your Advanced Quick Sets options.
- Disable Anti-Virus or Firewall Apps from scanning the ONYX, Bandhome, and work folders.
- Place other applications on a separate computer and access RIP-Queue through your network.
• Reference the Maximizing RIP Speed white paper for additional ideas to improve RIP speed.

Dear Doug !

In ConfigureRIP the "BANDHOME" is for default unchecked and "C:\Temp".

3 Questions:
1.: Is ONYX using the "C:\Temp" even that it is unchecked ?
2.: When I will define the ONYX Temp on another HD than "C", how much will ripping be increased?
3.: How big will this folder become, will it store buffered temp files and will grow up, or will it holds only for ripping time some temp files ?


Thanks !
