Long processing time with Xeon v3 processors.
When processing projects with Xeon v3 processors such as, but not limited to, the Intel Xeon CPU E5-2630 v3 or the Intel Xeon CPU E5-2687W v3, processing times are significantly longer than expected.
The following steps can alleviate the problem:
- Update motherboard BIOS
- Update chipset driver
- Disable hyperthreading
- Update GPU driver (crucial)
Recent investigation point to this issue being linked to a setting for the Quadro driver. If you are affected by this issue, please try to change those settings and inform us if processing times improve: Long Processing Time for Step 3 with Quadro GPUs.
