Raster Image Processor for plotting? e.g. X-RIP

Not applicable
We use an aging HP DesignJet 800PS, with jobs spooled over the network by Plotflow on our server. Depending on what we're plotting, it can be pretty slow. I don't know what the plotter cpu speed is, but it can't be the fastest.

Maybe we could run X-RIP by Microspot on a dedicated unused computer/ plot server (a G4 Mac), as a short-term solution.

Would this speed up plotting for us? Would it benefit all files, or just certain ones? Are there alternatives to X-RIP?

Any feedback would help us get a handle on this.
Thanks in advance,
