    Multi core Processor and premiere encoding speed question

    Level 1
      Hi all, The place I work is using AMD Athlon 64 X2-3800 with 2GB RAM and I notice that Premiere CS3 only use about 50% of the processing power in task manager. I wonder why? Is there any way to increase CPU usage (make encoding faster)?

      Also we planned to buy new processor/system. Will a Quad core Q6600 perform well in premiere CS3? I actually want the new 45nm quad core but seems it is not yet available in my country. Will a dual quad processor (AMD phenom or Intel quad core) even better as they will total 8 cores?

      Thanks in advance for your info!
