I have an HP DV7 with the following specs:
Intel i7 1.60 GHz
8 gb ram
64 bit os
500 gb internal memory
I am using a 7200 rpm esata drive for my media
I am editing AVCHD footage. Any suggestions for improving the preview as you play back on the editing timeline in PPro CS5 (ie shutting down some specific background programs and processes or anything else that helps). It gets tough to edit when the playback gets sluggish.
Get a faster CPU. That's about the only thing that will make a significant difference.
OK, what speed would you suggest?
Thanks for the reply.
For that media, I'd recommend an i7 3770K or an i7 3930K.
