Hi hanurgo, do you have more info on this new 45nm quad core ? is this the newer 3.x gig chip from Intel ?
Also - many have said that the quad core Intel chips will increase speed of rendering in Premiere ( there are some newer threads on this, within the last 3 months or so )
I think top of the line has 2.66GHz. This is the ordinary not extreme series (which is out of our budget).
Check it out, I actually want Q9450 but seems not widely available here:
I also noticed that most of the time only 1 CPU core work near 100%. The other will hover around 20%. Well it is quite responsive if I run other apps but when I run it over night I want it to be able to run both CPU core to almost 100%.
Do I have to disable AMD power saving mode?
I did some searching, and the processor you want, is not available in many places.
Even TigerDirect.com doesn't even list this processor. And, it must be VERY EXPENSIVE ! ( I'm guessing it will be $1,500 ? ), the one you list has a 1333 MHz bus speed !!
This is the most expensive processor they have listed:
It is currently $579 ( as of today, Feb.14, 2008 )
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 Processor BX80562Q6700 - 2.66GHz, 8MB Cache, 1066MHz FSB, Kentsfield, Quad-Core, Retail, Socket 775, Processor with Fan
Yeah seems that Intel has not released this to mass market. Maybe they sell it to branded computer maker first. They do have that ultra expensive 45nm Extreme Quad that cost $1200 to $1500. That should have hyperthread as well (if they still follow the old dual core Extreme) so that it will report 8 cores.
I guess AMD failure to launch phenom make Intel ease their launch.
Q6700 and Q6600 is both available in my country but if I have to choose I might take Q6600 as the difference is not very much and the price is about half.
After some more searching, I realize TigerDirect.com doesn't have the best pricing. I have found that the chip you want is in the $400 range, or just a bit below, and is being released soon it seems.
I'm glad you brought this chip to our attention, because I was going to go with the 2.40 quad ( 1066 model ) and now for not much more, you can get this much faster chip.
Well glad it will be release soon. I will wait before building new machine then. If it is out of our price range then maybe I can get that Q6700 price down to current Q6600 price and go with it instead.
I only want the new 45nm because it will be more cooler/efficient and has SSE 4.1 that should boost encoding more.
I just spoke with someone over at Tom's Hardware. Quad core 45nm processors are scheduled for Q1 if this year. He didn't go into specifics, but my original question was about affordable processors, like the Q6600. So I am assuming the QX9750 will soon have some cheaper company.
I don't see the QX9750 listed, - is this a Quad Core (Intel ) chip ?
( I don't see it listed here:
As for the Q6600 it has been slowly dropping over the past few months, which is nice to see. I really have been holding off buying a quad core, just because the dual core speeds are quite a bit higher at this point. I don't see however, a 3 ghz quad core processor being a good value in the very near future. I bet it will be another year or 2 before they come down in price.
Sorry - QX9775.
And don't go to much on CPU speed. The slower Q6600 can outperform most any faster dual core in many tasks, especially video encoding. If you look at the link below the only CPUs that currently beat the Q6600 (in red near the top) are Extreme Editions, and they ain't cheap.
(Damn! HTML is off again. What happened King?)
Yep, thats why I look for quad core. Because with Adobe and TMPGenc they do make their apps multithread. But in some apps dual core with higher GHz can outperform slower quad core.
And the only reason I need another machine is because using filter in adobe media encoder (noise reduction filter) is painfully slow (read my other thread).
As a general rule, I would just not use that filter. If you have one video that really needs it, buying a new machine just to do that seems a little extreme. That's kind of like buying a new SUV because the your family sedan won't hold all your luggage for that once in a lifetime family trip to Sea World.
Well, have many other stuff that really need that filter. Most of them because a block appearence. Anyway we have another 5 years old P4 machine that I use when I don't encode so the new machine will be the new encoding machine.
Anyway do you know how to closely replicate that filter with a stack of timeline filter? I wonder why if I use that filter then my CPU always work 50%. If I don't select it then both of my CPU core will work close to 100%!
Sorry, no. My media is only DV, which doesn't really need the filter, so I've never used it.
Got a core 4, only uses 30% cpu to encode makes me wait an hour... what a freaking joke get with it Adobe!
> Got a core 4
Is that a new to be announced processor?
I have PremierPro 4 running on a Dell Precision T7500 64 bit Windows XP workstation with Nvidia Quattro 3800.
I am encoding a file with the 8 processors running at 100% during the last 2 hours and it says the time remaning is more 2 hours.....
My question is if I would have any improvement upgrading to Vista?
I doubt you would see any significant improvement, if any at all. Many benchmarks put XP faster than Vista at a lot of things.
In any event, that 2 hours wouldn't suddenly drop to 1/2 hour by changing the OS.
