  • Don't mean to be cruel but re install the O.S. with all applicable patches and ramp up system memory to maximum supported switching off swapfile and then on in separate test rounds. XMP may not work best with swapfile. However as is at least it won't fry! ya i know months after this vid so appologies! perhaps XMP on a small SSD twin RAID stripe with swapfile on that.

  • I wonder if you would got better time if you would let the system run in Quad channel memory mode. I had some issues with Quad Channel memory and xmp on x99 5820k but giving the ram more voltage made the issue go away. While minus the 2 hours if fiddle with voltage to the ram phase control

  • the I frames are the main frames. H264 and h265 can use only I frams, or I, P and B frames, that, true, make harder some editing, but not always if you know how not. the B an d P frames are the culprit. but you can use lossless intraframe only h254 or 265, or any fast lossless codec with good compression.

  • Is there any reason not to try using a higher core count cpu and using virtualization to make several render vms, with only the optimal number of cores for each? Would that not result in multiple renders running at the same time and potentially reduce render times more than you can by just putting in a higher clocked cpu?

    Michael RichterMichael RichterVor Monat
    • at the very fringes, to which you've just jumped off of when talking about taking a render process and splitting those up in virtualized machines, it would come down to how the software handles being spoofed like that. At that point, each virtualized machine runs on a completely separate instance of each OS - which is a much different picture. adobe I doubt would ever try to allow even entertaining such a complex scheme given that people requiring that much render power would look to ASIC approaches - definitely bespoke. not a vanilla consumer product that Adobe's suite is.

  • LOL , seems Linus still didn't hear from AMD Ryzen and threadrippers, they do well with such loads..

Oh hell no, I fucking hate it, just because people just quote the video. Not actually make it humouristic or funny in any kind. Plus those lazy ass comments takes up to 80% of all comments, so yeah, DE-visions is dead. All because of millennials..
