Hi:
I reset "Chart Update Internal Milliseconds" to 1 and it alwasy come back for a setting of 40. What should I do in order to have a fast data? ( My data feed service is IB in case you need this info.)

Your suggestions are greatly apprecaited.

1 is not supported and would have a detrimental effect. If you go too low, you create the exact opposite problem and create delays due to overloading of the CPU.

In the case of Interactive Brokers it is pointless to use a very low setting. 100 milliseconds is low enough.

i use 40 milliseconds with intel i7 quad core i never use more than 4% of my CPU usage (according to my task manager) most of the time its sitting at either 1% or 0%, just for you to get an idea

100 milliseconds is a good update speed.

You definitely want to use an up-to-date dual or quad core CPU. Any CPU that has come out in the last few years should be fine.

I use 40ms, and it is very fast in updating. However, as SC said, IB data is the worst available on the planet, so no need to set it that low.

Curious, do you overclock and if so to what speed, and with what cooling?
