Well, Motion 4 and 5 both rely heavily on the GPU for performance, but I believe that the CPU helps out when rendering/exporting.

Performance seems a bit of a wash since although Motion 5 is 64bit, it's also 16 bit floating render where Motion 4 is 8 bit by default.

I think Motion 5 handles text better, but I don't have any attribution. I'm just repeating something I've heard.

However, there are ways to make text and motion blur not so problematic in the render stage. 26 hours for 45 seconds seems like something that could be improved upon by making some adjustments to your project.

Have you tried changing the shutter and sample size of your motion blur? How many layers of text do you have? Did you apply any filters to them, or any processor intensive parameters (like custom stroke width or dynamics)?
