  • Thunderbolt-3

  • CPU:

    The 8565U (four cores) provides eight processing threads (eight virtual cores) at 4.6GHz.


    RAM:

    16GB to 32GB (dual-channel) is sufficient for most users.


    OS drive:

    SSD as OS drive is certainly nice... but not an absolute necessity (conventional HD is fine).

    With a SSD, the machine boots quicker, apps open quicker, and navigating the OS is a little more "snappy".


    M.2 SSD:

    Disk-streaming sample libraries is where SSD really shines.

    M.2 SSDs sustain over 500MB/Sec (three times the speed of a conventional HD).

    M.2 PCIe x4 SSDs sustain 3500MB/Sec (six times the speed of a standard SSD).


    Thunderbolt:

    On the PC, we now have complete "PCIe via Thunderbolt" support.

    You must be running an up-to-date install of Win10 and have a motherboard that provides Thunderbolt-3 via USB-C port.

    RME, MOTU, Presonus, and UA have full "PCIe via Thunderbolt" drivers actually available.  Others are currently testing.

    To use a Thunderbolt audio interface, you'll also need a Thunderbolt-3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt adapter.


    Operating System:

    At this point, nearly all major audio software/hardware is working well with Windows 10 x64.

    For most users, we now recommend Windows 10.
