Ableton 8.3 and Reason 6 CPU Usage in Rewires

Hey. I was wondering what other users are getting for CPU usage in Ableton 8.3 when rewired to Reason 6?  I am playing a demo song in Reason via rewire in Ableton and I'm in the 60% to 80% CPU spikes with some pops and clicks, especially when switching between programs.  Is this normal?( I know this is relative to particular system)  I'm running XP 32 SP2 Quad Core Extreme 2.8 GHZ 4 Gigs of RAM MOTU 828MK3 FW/MOTU 8 PRE. Thanks

    First; upgrade to 6.5.1, there are quite some bugfixes.

    But yeah, this seems normal. Some Reason songs are very demanding on resources, though 4Gb should be enough to help out. You could always try Reason stand alone, see how that works out.
