As of yesterday, there is a new processor going into the new FM9s that will be shipping any time now. The new processor is 10% more power. That extra power would have made a difference for me in the situation I have my setup for. I had to make some compromises to stay within save CPU utilization so I don't get any strange noises or crashes. I have basically just learned the Fractal lesson again IMHO. This will be the last unit I purchase from them. I like that my Kemper Stage still does everything that I need it to do and I don't have to worry about running out of processing power and having issues. I can turn every block in it on and it will run them.
I also forgot to mention that they have been working on firmware updates. I have not felt comfortable updating to any of them from watching the reported bugs on them. They are now working on version 3.x. I will probably update to that version once it goes to a full release. It looks like they are struggling to get everything working without issues in this new unit. I don't know if there will be issues in the future because the units will have two different processors out in the wild. It is possible that at some point an update will run on the newer processor and not on the older one or not run as well.
