New Version 8.5 Analysis Software
Major new features
Faster to operate
User interface improvements
Data handling improvements
As well as improvements to many other features that have made Race Technology's analysis program a favourite amongst our race and industrial customers all over the world.
Memory: Depends on the run length used. At least 2GB is strongly recommended, more will improve processing speed.
Hard drive: From v8.5 the analysis software uses a large swap file on the hard disk for temporary storage. This means that disk performance is more important than before and for critical applications an SSD drive is recommended, although certainly not essential.
Screen Resolution: At least 1024x768 is strongly recommended so you can fit a few graphs on the screen at the same time, more is much better. Twin monitors are also supported by the software. High performance graphics card makes relatively little difference, although dedicated memory for the graphics adapter does help (compared with sharing memory between the main CPU and graphics)
Processor Speed: i3s work well, i5s processors are great, i7s are even quicker but possibly overkill for anything but really large or complex analysis
Security Software: This is causing more and more problems, please be aware that our software is compiled on a secure machine, all the files are checked for viruses, all files are digitally signed and then built into an installable package that itself is digitally signed. Our software absolutely does not contain any viruses, trojans, malware, advertising or anything similarly unpleasant. If your virus checker says something else then it's just wrong!! We get reports from users every week on this, and it's just the antivirus software trying to justify its existence in our opinion. Another potential problem with security software is the performance penalty you can get, if you are running with "corporate level security" of encrypted disk drives, multiple antivirus programs, UAC enabled, registry locked etc etc, don't be surprised if you get poor performance - in some extreme cases where all disk accesses are checked, the analysis software can be pretty much unusable.
We don't expect you to have any problems using our software, however if you do, please let us know so we have the opportunity to correct it by contacting us via our support page.
IMPORTANT: Version 8.5 does not support AP22 or DL90 hardware, see "legacy product" support below.
