Hi guys,
I was wondering what the cause could be?

At the moment i have 2 different M2PC setup's
One with an atom processor duo 1.8 ghz with 2 gig ram. The other is a laptop intel duo 2.4 ghz and 4 gig ram.

When i move 2 faders and use the grand master on the atom pc the M PC software is getting slow. What i have noticed is that it takes longer for the software to make all the actions. Another example is when i try to use 2 or 3 faders at the same time and also try to switch from screen view. Is this because of the processor power or the ram or maybe the usb connection? I am curious about the underlying thoughts about this issue.

I did not had any problems with the laptop so far.

Whats the exact processor specs? An atom is not recommended and below what is needed for M2PC. It should be an i5 or better.

Currently i am running with this motherboard: http://www.picco.nl/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/3865
I like them because you can fit them into a 1 HE case and you dont need a big computer with you.

It isn't a very strong CPU but it should perform better than you describe. We are adjusting how the M2PC usb communication works to improve this.
Do you have a color picker open by any chance when you experience this?

I do not have anything open on that moment.
I also noticed that the touchscreen reacts slow when i select the wave or steps value in the fx parts of the fixture. I double click on the wave or step button and it takes a few seconds to open the value dialog.
