    Preview Rendering is SOOOO slow

    SpareWheel Level 2

      Prem Pro version 4.2.

       

      Intel i7 970 (Hex) 3.2GHz
      MB: Asus P6T

      12GB RAM (9-9-9-24 running at 1333) 2x6gb kits.

      2x1TB 7200 HDD MB software RAID 0 Scratch (Source media & Previews).

      Other media and Cache: 1TB HDD 7200

      OS (Windows 64 bit Vista) 500MB HDD 7200

      Nvidia GTX580

       

      This is a dedicated editing workstation.

       

      It does appear my preview rendering is slowing! A 10 minute HDV clip for example is now taking over 45 minutes to render - and it's killing me.

       

      I've been using Prem Pro for almost two years and my past preview rendering experience was better than it is. What's changed?

       

      I changed my i7 920 out for a 970 (is this really the problem, or am I using more luma and colour corrections presets?).

       

      The Scratch drive is defragged and has 1.3 TB of free space - barely one-third full.

       

      I have about 4 or 5 colour and luma correction effects in the clip.

       

      My previous PPBM results were halfway up the chart. I haven't done a new PPBM test since.

       

      Apart from moving to CS5.5 has anyone any suggestions?
