Which Viewer is the lightest on CPU or GPU?

 

Currently I am doing some comparison and would love to hear your input. I am trying to see how many viewers can I run and what is the best way to get to it. It seems every viewer uses 25% CPU when used and around 5-9 when unused (not Firestorm, too heavy).

Currently on my machine, RAM use:
Alchemy 700 inactive, 850 active
Catznip 750 inactive, 850 active
UKanDo 690 inactive, 750 active
Firestorm, 1,100 inactive

CPU seems to be generally around the same, not sure about impact on GPU.

Your opinions?

I mostly use Firestorm and Alchemy. I haven't compared them directly but I agree that Alchemy is lighter and snappier than Firestorm. I still mostly use Firestorm because I love the features. I'm hoping that it will improve on the next release when they get caught up on the recent Linden updates.

You can use Open Hardware Monitor to measure the GPU load and memory usage. There is a bit of info about how I use it here: http://www.atob.ws/CTLViewerLag.aspx

CtrlAltStudio is a lighter viewer and it mirrors firestorm so if u are used to firestorm u will have no issues with ctrlaltstudio, it looks the same and has the same functions
