Good to see some AE/PP results. My colleague Ben Balser and I did some FCP X speed tests recently on all the Macs we had handy:

He has a new Thunderbolt RAID and I have a slower homemade USB3 software RAID, which explains a lot of the differences, but some of the results are very interesting. But even the complex effects export was much faster than realtime on a modern Mac. A two minute 1080p24 sequence (ProRes HQ, output to ProRes, with Directional Blur, Rain, and Underwater effects applied) took just 21 seconds to export on the Mac Pro, and 41 seconds on a new iMac with a slower drive.

Also note: most of the time, it's much faster if you don't render before exporting.
