so got my gtx 470. no improvement in rendering or exporting AT ALL. I tried many formats many footage, many different settings. My pc name is :Vic-PC
are my results normal? this CUDA thing is really overrated. I thought there would be at least a notacable leap in performance..wrong.
Vic, compare your results (total 1224) to Test C2Q 470 JG (total 711) same CPU, same speed, same 8 GB of RAM and I can see that your system is not tuned and/or set up properly. Admittedly the comparison system does have a RAID 0 but that primarily affects the Disk I/O (AVI encoding) score. Your CPU intensive score (MPEG2-DVD) is 425 versus the comparison system 327 seconds. That inefficiency affects all your scores. Notice how low your ratio of MPE off to MPE on (MPE gain) is.
