Well nobody else did it so I had to invest heavily in a i7-980x CPU and see what I could do with my Premiere Pro BenchMark for CS4. with appropriate overclocking and a special trick I was able to temporarily take the crown from King Harm.. I do not believe that CS4 was designed well for multithreading beyond four cores. I am eagerly awaiting CS5.and CUDA.
only a couple seconds faster.
maybe with CS5 like you said it will make a bigger difference.
Harms disk setup must make a big difference.
I cant wait to build a system for CS5 since my score is second from last at 329.6 compared to your score of 34.7 almost 10 times faster.
Fun times ahead: Glenn
