I got two systems:
cpu i5930k H100i water cooled
mobo: MSI x99a xpower
gpu: evga gtx 980 ti hybrid
ram: 32 gb corsair dominator.
the system is overclocked to 4.5 ghz
win 7 64 bit
Rendered with newest cc media encoder, cuda engine
cpu: i6700 stock cooler
mobo: asus z170 pro gaming
gpu: asus gtx 980 ti
the system runs at 3.5ghz
Render with cs6 media encoder, cuda engine
How is that possible that system 2 is out performed system one?
I rendered the very same composition, with the very same settings and I got the following result:
system one render time: 2 hours and 30 minutes
system two render time: 56 minutes
I spent a fortune on system one and it is quite an unpleasant surprise seeing that my system is out performed significantly by a weaker system.
Any reason for that? Or is cs6 render engine is better than cc?
You can download any of the following versions of AE: CS6, CC, CC 2014, and CC 2015 through the Creative Cloud app. Pick a version and install it on both of those machines to test rendering between them with the same versions. That way you can eliminate software differences and compare apples to apples.
