Your system specs are fine - CS5 should scream on these boxes. So there's something about the configuration or footage that we're missing here.
Are you using some custom codec? The first thought that pops to mind is that you might be rendering using a codec that's only 32 bit compatible, you might need to procure the 64 bit version.
We have almost the same configuration as a local broadcast station.
Now we are still using CS4, and when i'm reading these kind of posts,
i'm getting a little bit nervous, because my editors are begging for CS5.
Must i wait for CS6 ??????
Your system is absolutely unique, in that it the only machine in this galaxy and close surroundings to have a
280gb WD Velociraptor 12k RPM hard drive.
Do you happen to have more unique disk drives? Or more than a single non-existant disk?
Mere mortals can only get a 300 GB WD Velociraptor 10k RPM drive.
@BlueLogo: Keep in mind people only tend to post problems on forums, not their success stories (although we've had a few nice comments lately from happy users). You need to read other posts - from what I've seen to date, most people have been touting CS5 as the most stable release we've ever launched. But I'm obviously biased, I'll leave it to other users to post their opinions.
Personally, I'd suggest you pick up a copy and try it out for yourself. There's no substitute for hands-on.
the animation is a simple test series of png files, jpg is no better.
Correction; on hard drive, actually, 300gb 10k rpm WD Velociraptor, (280gb formatted) although doubtful this has any bearing on the issue.
I'm experiencing this slowdown in this post (our IT group is helping track down a solution). It would be great to hear from or talk to someone who has had success playing back sequential files on the CS5 timeline. Honestly we aren't in the business of complaining, but we like our new tools to work
We're in the Seattle area and would be willing to meet up, or share our test scene if that helps explain the issue...
But overcranked by 20% to 12 K RPM?
No other disks?

So I've mentioned this before on a couple of other posts, but we do know about a specific playback performance problem when dealing with still animations. There is a specific fix for this coming in the next dot release.
I'd like to know from the OP if it's only still sequences that are problematic. The leading post made it sound like playback was busted across the board.
I'm happy user since 1993 (Premiere 1.0), but i'm a little worried
I'l read the other posts. Sorry for my negative comment.
I can tell you directly as he posted on behalf of my group~ We haven't actually tested anything other than sequences as that's our workflow...good to hear a confirmed issue with sequential frames...you should let your helpdesk folks know in the east, it would have saved us some pain.
btw, here's the test scene if anyone wants to try it:
If this is true, I have major heartburn that this information was not communicated by Adobe support in the last week during our interactions and also that it has not been publically announced by Adobe.
If there is a “patch” coming that will address this, I expect information on the date we can expect to receive it. If there is a BETA available, then we wish to have access to it ASAP
see my corrections.

Since you're new here, I'll outline Adobe's historical policy on such matters:
They never publically announce bugs beyond what is in the release notes or in their tech docs.
They never announce a hard release date for any software.
They never hand out beta versions to the general public that aren't already on the Labs web site.
makes us warm and fuzzy after writing the $250k check to Adobe...
Do you have a support contract? I don't know how much better support you'd get with one of those, but it may be worth investigating considering the size of your company's investment.
please PM me and I'll see what I can do.
