Now that Adobe CS4, Avid Media Composer and Sony Vegas support Vista 64 we think the time has come to see how they run on the latest hardware.
Our DIY7 machine is up and running geat. THIS BABY SMOKES!!! We used the following parts:
* Intel i7 920 processor (Quad-core, hyperthreaded)
* Asus P6T Deluxe X58 based motherboard
* 6GB Corsair RAM (6GB total: 3 x 2Gb sticks) running triple channel
* Vista 64 Business
* 1TB System Drive
* G-Speed eS 2TB w/ PCIe card for media storage
* QuadroFX 1700 (we will be testing a new QuadroCX card shortly)
So far we are running Adobe Production Premium CS4 and the results are amazing. We will be installing the new Media Composer 3.5 software later this week.
We hope to have our article published in in aweek or two. It will be one of the first new featured articles on the new Videoguys website!http://www.hdvideoguys.com/
It was the new website that caused many of the delays in our DIY7 prject. The same IT team that builds our DIY machines does our internal IT support and was heavily involved in the launch of our new site.
We will be ready to launch our new & improved web site soon but it is up and running now! Check it out, register & even place a secure online order today and receive a $10 coupon for your next purchase!
