Thread: Want to achieve faster rendering!

  1. #1

    Default Want to achieve faster rendering!

    I have a Dell Pentium D 3.0 GHz. with 1 G of RAM and a 250G hard drive.

    Also has the ATI Radeon X600 SE graphic card with 128M RAM.

    I want to boost the rendering speed. (Am currently using Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0.) I'm willing to increase the RAM and/or buy a new video card if necessary.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Are there any rendering programs that currently take advantage of the Dual Core Pentium D processors?

    Thanks,
    Alan

    You could try bumping the RAM up to 2GB, but I'm not sure how much that would actually increase the performance.

    One thing you could try to actually increase the peformance of the video during editing though, is buying an additional hard drive, and having your video files on that, whilst keeping your OS and applications on the main drive.

    If it was a choice between the two, personally I'd go for the extra hard drive, if mainly for the reason that when you're doing lots of editing, even though 250GB sounds like a lot, there's no such thing as too much hard drive space

    The 3 things that define how quick you machine renders are: RAM, CPU & Disks. - You GFX card has nothing to do with rendering.

    More ram, a faster CPU and a faster disk setup will sort it.

    I was considering increasing my RAM from 1 to 2 Gigs. What kind of increase do you think I would see? 10% 20%???

    kind of impossible to guess that. It all depends on the combination of components. It will deffinatley help sppeed things up but by how much is something I wouldn't wanna hazard a guess at.
