I am working with Altera's Quartus II compiler and Cyclone FPGA chips. Using a Dell 3.2gig P4 with a gig of 400mhz memory, some compiles can still run 4 to 7 minutes. When you have to do that 15 or 20 times a day, it really gets old.
So the question is: Is there a MB/CPU combination that can make a significant difference to software compile times?
Thanks for listening. I'm not a gamer' just an impatient engineer.
