Render time toooooo long

Hi everyone !

I know my build is really old, but before, I was working on a Macbook with these specs : Intel I3, An integrated graphic card (intel HD something), 4Gb of ram.

A Music video of 3-4 minutes with a visualizer a background and some small particle usually took me 2h hours to render.

Now with these specs :
Intel Double Xeon E5620 16 x 2.66 Ghz (24M Cache , 2.66 Ghz)
DDR3 12GB ECC
NVIDIA Quadro K600


That exact video takes 6h ??
I was hoping to work with better/same performance as my old macbook, not worst..

(Im rendering with Media Encoder, and my processor is using 20%-30% of its ressources).

Is there something I can fix ?
Thank you.

Yes -- you can put 16 gigs of memory into your machine. 4GB RAM is woefully inadequate.

I'm sorry, did you read the whole text ?

4GB of RAM was in my old laptop, which is more fast than my current build that has 12 GB.

Yeah, well, 12 gigs still ain't 16.

Using the most current version of AE doesn't help some users, either. Adobe is yet to get its code work well with certain OS / Hardware combinations. The 2017 version may work a lot better for you.
