How many seconds for a basic transition?

    I have a new PC Pentium IV 800 MHz, P4C800 Deluxe motherboard and
    DVRex RT.
    I think my new PC is too much slow. I had a dual Pentium III 600 MHz
    and it required the same time to make a basic transition.
    1,10 seconds of a basic transition it requires about 4 seconds of
    Will my PC have some problems?

    bye Fogar

  2. (I didn't know you could buy an 800MHz P-4...;-)
    My experience lately is that running older software (Premiere
    5.1 instead of P-6) on a good 800MHz P-3 computer,
    using a fast codec (Canopus) is about as fast as running
    newer software and MS codec on a 2+GHz P-4 computer.
    So, I rebuilt the new computer (and reconstructed the old
    one, as a spare) with the Raptor card and P-5.1, and even
    though I traded out the 2.66GHz CPU and MB with faster
    bus and RAM (the MB SIS chipset was incompatible with
    the Raptor) for a 2.2GHz and guts, the render speed is now
    more than doubled compared with the other computer
    versions (it's about 1:1 now vs. 2-2.5:1...). BTW, Premiere
    at least doesn't use dual CPUs very efficiently...

    Hi David,
    thanks for your reply.
    My new PC is a Pentium IV 2800 MHz 800 FSB with P4C800 deluxe
    I'd like to inform you I use RexEdit RT.
    How can I verify if my PC is too much slow? I notice when I make the
    rendering with RexEdit RT v.2.4, the processor is used for 40%.
    thanks again Fogar
