That’s why we have moved to zBooks with i7. :-) Teams and Studio Pro together overwhelmed our normal business laptops. With the i7 under the hood it’s okay. But in general Studio Pro 9 seems to have some performance issues when the projects grow.
I would expect this hardware to run Studio Pro without any problems. What does make a big difference in my opinion is turning of the MxAssist Logic bot (edit MxAssist), this made Studio Pro a lot faster for me.
Also I notice it slows down when I have a lot of tabs open at the same time so I try to close and save them regularly.
From my personal experience, the setup you describe should be very capable of running Mendix Studio Pro.
The information that is lacking from your post, and that will help to see what is possible bottleneck might be is:
- How many instances of the modeler are open at the same time?
- Is the Windows Machine running any managed software? I’ve noticed that some governance software can cause a strain on the laptop’s performance
- Is MS teams running? This is a real memory hog :)
Hope these questions give some direction in finding the cause of your issue.
Just open with a large project in Mendix 9, almost every day I need a reboot at lunchtime.
Mendix is a very developer-friendly tool!
