Did the recent update of the Intel chip significantly slowdown backtesting on your PC as it has with mine?  For similar testing that I perform, it typically takes 3-4 hours.  Right now i've gone 28 hours for the same range of backtesting data. My CPU is only using 50% running 4 terminals, and my ram is only at 30% (I have 16 gigs). Anyone else noticing this major slowdown?

I haven't measured backtesting speed but yes, the latest update reduced all my processor speed in general, as was announced in the news. The speed reduction was very significant.

Yea i think that is whats so crazy about the update. I didnt expect it to slow down things by this major margin.
