I have just uninstalled my trial of R# 6.1 EAP and am now reinstalling R# 5.3. The performance was completely unacceptable: VS took very long to start up, the editor could not follow my typing and opening the various windows took several seconds.
I am using a macbook pro with 8GB ram, 4 cores (I7-2620M @ 2,7 GHZ) and an SSD disc and note that I am booting in windows 7 pro 64 bit and I am NOT using vm-ware or other virtual machines. I would expect this hardware to be more than sufficient, but apparently it is not.
Besides from resharper I have the NuGet pacakge manager, MSpec and PowerCommands forVS2010, GitExtensions and Git SCM provider installed. Once I suspend R# 6.1 my Visual Studio works fine with good perforamcne and it is responsive.
I had hoped to have acceptable performance after having read that 6.1 EAP should address performance issues, but as the sitauation is right now I will not be upgrading to 6.1.
Is there anything I can do to improve performance ?
