I've recently upgraded my Editing PC hoping to have better results in preview, rendering time, etc...
The hardware specs of my new editing PC is as it follows:
- Intel Xeon X5675 - 3.07GHz / 6-core processor (12 cores with HT on)
- 12GB DDR3 with ECC (Windows 7 Pro 64-bit)
- 2 x 256GB SSD (no raid, 1 disk for system and 1 for files/scratch disk)
- 2.5GB GDDR5 Nvidia Quadro 5000 (one of the best cards around)
Editing softwares: Vegas Pro 11 / Premiere and After CS5 (all of them correctly configured with CUDA / GPU acceleration and using secondary SSD drive as scratch and temporary folders)
Bios is also correctly configured to get the most out of the system.
Preview gets stuck from time to time even lowering quality and with little or no effects/transitions at all. Rendering time is sometimes even slower than on previous PCs I had with worst hardware.
Funny thing is that I also own a laptop (i7, 8GB ram, 256GB SSD and 2GB Quadro 2000 graphics card) and when I edit on it the performance is excellent, a lot better than on the desktop, and don't get the same issues, even rendering on the same disk as the OS is installed/running.
Does anyone know what am I getting wrong? Thought it could have something to do with using Xeon processors or SSD instead of regular HDs, but doesn't make sense at all.
Any help is welcome cause eversince I purchased this new PC it has been a big disapointment.
