i7 2600k @ 3.4::4.0::4.2 GHZ Vegas 10 Benchmarks

I had next to no information on what kind of performance i could expect from a core i7 2600k

So I hope these test are useful to someone looking to buy a new computer and wondering about the performance increase.

My previous best computer was a:

q6600 @2.4ghz
4 gb ram @800mhz ddr2
3x samsung f3 1tb hdds

I ran the same benchmark on it and the 1080p render took 1:05:38

that's more than the total time my i7 2600k took to render all 3 versions together

So here are the new Computer specs:

Core i7 2600k 3.4ghz (3.8 TurboBoost)
16gb DDR3 @ 1600MHZ
5x Samsung f3 1TB (2 in raid 0)
windows 7 64bit
vegas 10e 64bit

For this test i used some canon t2i 1920x1080 29.97fps footage (straight from the camera, no transcoding)

no plugins no effects

I rendered the videos with the main concept avc/mp4 codec

So on to the results:

Stock i7 2600k 3.4ghz

9:59 source. Render time 7:56 4mb/s 320kbs h264 480p

9:59 Source. Render time 15:46 10mb/s 320kbs h264 720p

9:59 Source. Render time 25:18 14mb/s 320kbs h264 1080p


i7 2600k OC 4ghz

9:59 Source. Render time 7:00 4mb/s 320kbs h264 480p

9:59 Source. Render time 13:45 10mb/s 320kbs h264 720p

9:59 Source. Render time 22:06 14mb/s 320kbs h264 1080p


i7 2600k OC 4.2ghz

9:59 Source. Render time 6:53 4mb/s 320kbs h264 480p

9:59 Source. Render time 13:11 10mb/s 320kbs h264 720p

9:59 Source. Render time 21:01 14mb/s 320kbs h264 1080p


4.2 ghz is as far as I am willing to push my cpu for the moment.

Re: i7 2600k @ 3.4::4.0::4.2 GHZ Vegas 10 Benchmarks

Thank you for the info. My system is very similar to what you just upgraded from.
Your numbers confirm that the stock i7-2600K is just over 2x the speed of the stock Q6600.
I've seen that in various benchmarks on the web.

If you don't mind my asking, what was the length of your source video?

I didn't know that existed, and im not trying to brag, but I know I would've found the same info useful to me when I was looking to upgrade

I think we should sticky that test
