Hum...

I just check with the new engine in 1980x1024, most options high.

RAM used in a classic store; 280MB

RAM in OA: 640MB

RAM in EFP: 1 200MB (yes, 1.2GB)

RAM in SL: 1300ish MB (1.3GB)

And that's not with 40 players around.

Each client running will use the same thing as the first client.

So running 7 clients means possibly more than 9GB ONLY for AO (add all your other running software and the system itself).

Or it will spap to disk and slow down.


Regarding CPU usage I was at 4.7% per AO client on an Intel i7-2600K (yes quite old now). I will have to compare it with new CPU to see what AO will use, roughly.

The i5-7600K you posted has a Passmark (a quite reliable general purpose CPU benchmark) benchmark of 9151
https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cp ... Hz&id=2919

My own i7-2600K (years old now) i used at 4.7ish % by a new engine AO client and has a benchmark of 8457
https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cp ... GHz&id=868

So, as a rule of the thumb based on bechmarks comparison, let's say that each AO new client you run will take around 4.4% of CPU.

So for each new engine client:
4.4% of CPU i5-7600K
up to 1.3GB of RAM

OK, so do the following (I can't do it; I don't have an old client installed ATM):

    Run AO old client

    Click CTRL ALT DEL and you'll get the Windows Task Manager

    In the TAB "Processes", you'll see programs running and AO will have an AO icon and a name like "Client 32 bits".

    Check what memory is allocated to each client

    Check how much CPU % is allocated to each client

    Do that in a small and large zone

And tell us the results.
