CPU usage on search has been reduced almost by 2/3rds, search experience should be significantly better, specially on older machines which had a hard time using FrostWire.

Memory usage while searching has been reduced up to a 50%.

The Peak number of threads is now 41% of FrostWire 5’s.

And we’ve gotten rid of over 2,000 classes, and we keep getting leaner and leaner as we prepare for the first release candidate.

These tests were performed on a MacBook Air, 1.7GHz Intel Core i5, 4Gb 1333 MHz DDR3 of memory running on OSX 10.9.5.

Soon we’ll have results on an older machine running Windows XP.

Please Test and compare FrostWire 6 to FrostWire 5 for yourself.

We’d like to invite people passionate about testing software performance and let us know what they find independently.

We’d rather be validated by non related third parties on the fact that FrostWire 6 is a superior file sharing client than its predecessor.
