Re: Performance of student version of Mathematica?


I was curious about this possibility also, so I contacted the 
info at wri.com and here's what they said.  The student version will not use 
a math coprocessor, even if present.  THe rep said that this makes 
little difference for normal calculations, but for large data 
sets, numerical calculations, or intensive graphics work, it translates into 
about 4 times slower.  Unfortunately, this is what I use Mathematica for, 
so I guess I'll have to go with the full version.
