I have just got a new Dell mobile Precision M6400 (laptop) and have run a test render in AE, I did the exact same render on my old computer to see which one was fastest
My old computer won!
Please take a look at my specs of both machines and my settings in AE - and hopefully someone can help show me where I'm going wrong....
DELL MOBILE PRECISION M6400:
My old desktop PC (Compaq Presario):
Please let me know if you need more info. Also on the Precision (laptop) - I have the openGL texture memory set on 200mb
Thanks for any help!
**please note that the new laptop is running Windows at 64 bit (installed today - if that means anything)**
I'm installing a new Nvidia driver to see if that helps
With the new Nvidia driver - it still renders slower than my old computer BUT the previews are a lot faster, which is nice. Is this the only improvment I should expect?
I also have the Dell 6400 Precision although I bought it at the end of 2008 so am running with Vista 64.
My system has the Quadro 3700M and 8 gbs of RAM and a Quad Core processor and when I first got up and running on CS4 it was also painfully slow.
At some point between updating my Adobe programs and nvidia drivers, the computer suddenly took off and suddenly just recently slowed to a crawl again which I am trying to debug.
Are you still having this problem?Did you figure out what the problem was?
