The amount of cache essentially decides how heavy a load the CPU can take realtime. After the cache is saturated then the system ram is used as cache and that adds to the processing time which essentially lowers the realtime processing load.
Ok thanks for the answer - but is 2 mb difference as there is here a lot...
can you feel it a lot, when working in this system?
Its a Lenovo w530 with
CPU Intel Core i7-3720QM 2,6GHz Ram 16 or 32 MB Harddisc I 7200 GB with Harddisc II 240GB SSD Sata III video 2GB NVIDIA Quadro K2000M + Intel HD Graphics 4000 (Optimus auto-switch)
all best Mads
Do you have a choice of a nVidia GTX card as you will be much happier over the generally overpriced Quadro's
not really - its in the lenovo systems.
I'm not a hardware guy, so i'll stick to the system instead of building it ;-)
Normally I recommend the 3720/3740 over the 3820/3840 because of the price difference. However if you are dealing with heavier codecs or spend allot of time in AE then yes the 2Meg Cache would be worth the difference.
Thanks - I'm only starting on PP now and will do small web films arround 10 - 15 min - mostly PR.
I dont even know yet what the abbreviation AE stands for ;-)
