Ok I been just doing some experimenting with different hardware to run Lightburn. One of the thoughts I had was to try it on an atomicPI running windows 10. The thought is I could use a dedicated $35 dollar board install directly into my K40. Then I could use remote desktop to configure and then run out to the shop to position and start it off a small 7inch touch screen.
Well to be honest it works great to start off with the performance deteriorates over time. You can spend hours in the lightburn software with no issue super responsive and works perfectly. Once you start a job the performance deteriorates to where you cannot even open another window. The only fix it to restart the machine. Now here is the strange part. Total CPU used 11% and 32% Memory for the entire system.
This slow down does not appear to be a resource issue from what I can tell from the task manager and no errors of consequence in the event viewer. My only thought is something with the GPU from how it seems to have a hard time rendering after about 30 minutes into a job.
Processor Intel Atom x5-Z8350 CPU @ 1.44Ghz
Windows 10 Pro… Stripped down to bare necessities.
Thoughts? I may try putting linux on it and seeing if that works any better but was really hoping to use RDP as it is much better for jobs like this.
