    Performance in CS5.5

    Jay Gladwell Level 1

      Okay, I got a new system because of such poor performance on my old one.

       

      New specs are:

       

      CPU: Intel i7 Core 3930K overclocked to 4.2GHz

      MB: ASUS P9X79 Deluxe

      GC: Nvidia GXT580

      RAM: 32GB RAM

      OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

       

      In a test, I put a 5-minute clip of a talking head on the timeline. Applied a "look" Magic Bullet Looks and attempted to render the video to a Vimeo-suitabel file. Estiamted time was 41 minutes.

       

      This that the norm? Should/could it be less? Would turning on hyper-threading help? What would the best way to "optimize" this system?

       

      TIA!
