    Why RAM Preview 2x faster on Macbook Pro vs Desktop PC?

    dchue.com

      Hello everyone,

       

      I RAM Previewed a few seconds of an AE CS6 project on a Desktop PC I recently had custom-built, and was distraught to discover it was twice as slow as previewing the exact clip on my Macbook Pro. The project involves simple 3D camera movements. Why might this be so, and can I tweak my PC settings to get more out of it?? I will greatly appreciate any feedback I can get...I'm still new to the Adobe world, and even newer to computer configuration. Thank you!
