[PD] PD on Atom Processors

FWIW L2Ork (http://l2ork.music.vt.edu <http://l2ork.music.vt.edu/> ) runs entirely on MSI Wind U100 netbooks with Atom processors. Everything works just fine. You will top off the CPU relatively quickly as these things are not built for speed. Still, you should get a decent amount of performance out of them. I haven’t used much Gem (yet) but did construct a few test patches and it did behave perfectly fine, even with Compiz on. The only device that has shown some instability is wireless which can occasionally drop a wireless connection (although this may be simply because I am running an older version of Ubuntu, namely 9.10).




Best wishes,

Hi together,


is there someone who has experience running PD on Atom machines?


I want to realize a simple video player for an installation using PD / GEM and an Arduino as Interface. The machine I am thinking about is a MSI Windbox running Linux,  booting from USB and playing the Videos on an SD-Card.

Since Linux is preinstalled on the machine I expect no problems with the graphic drivers...

Specs are:


• Suse Linux Enterprise 11
• Intel® Atom™ Prozessor D510
(1,66 GHz, 1 MB L2 Cache)
• 320 GB HD und 2 GB Ram
• ATI® Radeon™ HD4330 Grafik, 256 MB 
• Intel® NM10 Express
• WLAN 802.11 b/g/n und Gbit LAN
• eSATA-Anschluß, SPDIF out Adapter
• HDMI- und VGA-Ausgang
• 6 in 1 Card Reader und 4 USB Ports
