- A few 1TB 7200 rpm drives with a lot of free space
- Mac OS 10.6.6
- PPCS5 5.0.3
And still PPCS5 is damn slow. I'm editing a 1080i video getting low quality previews on my second monitor.
I have activated the mercury engine grpu acceleration (that didn't help much).
With any other software this machine rocks, but with premiere everything is slow and tedious... I have checked the acvitivity monitor and the CPU spikes barely reach 70% of use and usually it's below 50%.
Is there anything obvious I have to do to get a good performance?
Do you think this kind of performance is normal for this hardware specs?
