I have a application (I created) running on a I7-4■ 790 processor in a B85m-e motherboard with winxp its cycle time is 9 minutes. On a i7-8700k processor in a Z370M motherboard with win10 the cycle time is 10:54 minutes. To completely cycle thru the application the winxp machine finishes in 4 days the win10 (with a much faster pro) 7 days. My question is can I do anything to the win10 machine so its performance is comparable to the winxp machine. If not can I install winxp on a Z370M motherboard. (the no IDE support stops me)
Both systems, winxp and win10 are installed in machines not connected to the internet or is ANYTHING added no anti virus, no adobe, nothing zip nada
You could try stripping down Windows 10's unnecessary functions or things that you don't use. Lot's of info on that on the web. Other versions of Windows like Win10 LTSB might be an option, but I don't know how to get it.
WinXP a 32-bit app runs native, under Win10x64, it runs a translation layer, so will be a little slower, 4 v 7 days is a lot and something else is causing the issue and I would look at the coding, no disrespect intended of your coding skills.
