I don't care about any new features. I just want Logos fast. Is Logos 8 any faster or slower?

Most people are reporting faster.

Logos 8 is faster. Noticeably faster at startup and search. (I still wouldn't call it fast, though!)

True, fast is a relative term.

Good question, Josh. Installation is 2x faster, and searching is up to 10x faster than Logos 7.0.

I am not sure if indexing is quicker but it seemed like it was to me, it fairly zipped through a 4gb download.

the indexing process is huge. it seems every time a buy a book--and I buy a lot-- it slows the whole computer to a crawl while it is indexing.

I would echo this - on both my PC desktop (i7-7700K, 16GB RAM, 512GB NvME SSD) and my Macbook Pro (2018 Core i5, 16GB RAM, Touchbar) it was noticeably faster at install, loading, indexing and searching. And by noticeably I mean I sort of went "Wow - this is much better!" Smile

The single best improvement you can make to your system for indexing speed is to install Logos on a fast SSD.

Josh Hunt - for me it was faster by a lot on one machine, and feels about the same on the other.

The biggest improvement was on my i7 8th gen laptop (with a Fast SSD) (30 seconds, down to 7-10 to start).

The one that is about the same is my desktop - Ryzen 7 with the fastest I could get SSD at the time.

Indexing seems a good bit faster, but I didn't run any comparisons. Full re-index on the desktop took a couple hours with ~17000 titles. The last time I re-indexed on my desktop (full re-index) I kicked it off before bed, and it was done at some point before morning.

an SSD of a decent size can be picked up for around 100$. It will probably cost you about that again to have your operating system moved over (unless you have a guy for that at your church or can do it your self).

All in all I'm glad to be running L8, I like it better, its more responsive, and I think is an improvement. Especially on my laptop, which frequently feels sluggish with other applications.

It feels faster to me. Panels open faster. And indexing seemed faster too (although I didn't time it).

The software downloaded 249 new resources, many of them commentaries and the indexing didn't take long at all. I'm not sure if I did the install process right but mine downloaded the new books and indexed them first. I restarted, then it downloaded the software updates and indexed again. Maybe I restarted too soon, I don't know. But even though it indexed twice it still didn't feel like it took a long time. Especially considering all the new datasets that were added.

The guides feel faster. I haven't done a ton of searching yet. I've been going through a workflow. Everything loads in the workflow instantly when you expand a section, and there's a ton of data in the workflow, at least in the one I'm using (Inductive Bible Study).

It seems to index faster than before as well :-)
