Subject: NONMEM on Pentium

This is Ritu Lal from Abbott Labs.

Currently, we use NONMEM on an Alpha running on a VAX/VMS 9000 system. It takes us days to weeks to finish our NONMEM runs right now (Since we have a lot of NONMEM users in our group).

We are seriously looking into other platforms for running NONMEM. Using a PC (Pentium) is one of the options. What I would like to know is, does anybody know how fast NONMEM would run on a Pentium as compared to a VAX/VMS 9000 Alpha? Also, what specs would I need on the Pentium? Thanks
