What's are you getting for a render-time ratio?

I realize it depends on a number of vaiables, but is 10/1 pretty good (PP w/Aspect)?

When exporting a flat timeline of stardard 1440x1080i60 clips back to CFHD I just timed a 10 second export at 35 seconds (3.5 to 1.) 720p will be twice as fast. This was on an old-ish 3.2 Ghz P4. So it depends hugely on what processing you are going. The more layers and the more non-RT filter you apply, and the types of exports you are doing (MPEG2 HD 2-3 X longer, MWV HD 4-8X longer.)

Quite impressive. Will I get similar restults with my P4 2.8 HT processor?

Thanks

If your 2.8Ghz P4 has 800Mhz FSB (with fast memory to match) you should get similar results (maybe 15% slower.)

Where do look for the specs on my FSB?

Thanks
