    CS 5.5 on new i7: amazing editing, rendering & exporting, lousy indexing/conforming

    Matt Petersen Level 3

      I just had my machine upgraded to an i7 with 24GB of RAM and an SSD OS drive.


      Overall performance of the app (and other apps) is fantastic, quite happy.


      However, one aspect is quite mediocre: the performance while indexing and conforming files. Opening System Monitor, only one core is doing anything, with an overall processor committment of about 2-3%, and not much RAM in play.


      As soon as I render or export, I hear the fans kick up, and all cores join the party.


      The files are HDV. Card is a 570GTX.


      What am I missing?? Is this standard behaviour?
