Performance settings

The Performance page in the Settings dialog box allow you to optimise analysis and design performance according to your preference and your PC’s capabilities.

Button, command, or option Description


To optimise performance choose one of the following:

  • Conserve memory (default)

  • Favour speed

Note: We recommend the 'Favour speed' option is used only on higher specification PC’s with multi-core processors and the recommended amount of RAM.


Options are provided to allow you to take advantage of multi-core processing in the design and chase-down phases.

  • Use multi-core processors for design

  • Run chase-downs concurrently
