Since a few days i am using my new macbook pro retina i7 2.3 16gb ssd. and i am surprised how slow aperture is.
i used it on a ssd macbookpro 13" i5 with 8gb for 2 years and always was ligtning fast.
its not useable at all right now. when i scroll to photos (without preview mode) each photo takes up to 1/2 seconds which is just to slow. when i dodge and burn cursor gets choppy, and when i adjust levels it takes 2/3 sec to take any effect.
Just noticed that when i only browse the cpu goes up to 113%+
Since i just used it as temp library (later i will import that in my full archive) the library is only a 2.000 to 4.000 images large.
Here some other information
Macbook Pro 2.3 i7 16gb ram and 265GB SSD.
Clean new install mountain lion (only adobe suite, chrome, aperture, dropbox and skype are installed)
Turned off faces, and geo location in aperture, and also set previews to quality 6 and half size. no other apps running.
by the way not only aperture gets slow, but when i just did some changes to a image and i command tab into a other app. its slow as well..
current activity monitor stats
ram 12.7 gb used 3.2 free
1.8 gb swap used
disk activity small peaks of around 900kb so nothing exciting here
network almost not used. (so no backup or anything is on
for cpu with a idle aperture in the background is just normal
skype uses some 3%
my other system is a i5 8gb macbook pro 13" with 8gb of ram and also a SSD and a lot of **** on it, and harddisk for 95% full and that one is lightning fast.
so im really stuck here :-(
