Please test these with moderate-to-heavy projects, ideally ones that use a significant number of Cockos plug-ins. If you would like to help give us valuable feedback, the following information will be most helpful with the results: Testing methodology
Try loading your project, playing it a bit, and letting everything settle before taking a measurement. When you do take a measurement, try to make it over a reasonably long time (such as 30 seconds), and try to make sure that your sample is taken from the same part of the project in each test.
