quartus - Linux or Windows

Started by nachum February 9, 2005
I have read that quartus is optimized to take advantage of the SSE
instruction sets in Linux, yet not in Windows. Can I assume from this
that quartus will run faster on Linux?

I am buying a new computer, and I want to decide what OS to run, and if
Linux will be faster for FPGA design, than that is what I will run.

Thanx again,

nachum

Our current run time comparisons show that for the same hardware, the
XP and Linux results are within 5% of each other. Either OS will work
fine as far as Quartus is concerned.

Hope this helps,

Do you have a link to those run time comparisons ? I would like to see
what the relationship between different chips / os is?

Thanx,
