Default Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

Yeah I'm scratching my head on this one too. I think it's common to see a slight decrease comparing FW to USB interfaces, but not nearly this much (~12%). No other peripherals plugged in. USB keyboard, USB mouse, and the Mbox itself, that's it. There's no setting in the BIOS for hi-speed vs. full-speed. It's just either on or off. I even did a full uninstall/reinstall of Pro Tools to see if adding the Mbox drivers on top of the Mbox 2 Pro drivers had anything to do with it. Same result.

I'd be curious about other Core 2 Quad builds comparing FW to USB interface results. Perhaps this is the one weakness of the P35 chipset?
