They upgraded my PC at work and although I can see some enhancement of performance, I feel like Ae isn't using most of the power of the PC. I'm no geek in Hardware but understand basics.
I have issues with the renderer Ray-Traced 3D which is now marked with (Depreciated) and won't preview anything and errors keep on popping up ( Ray-traced 3D: Initial shader compile failed 5070::0 among others). I've switched to the Cinema 4D renderer but the fact it doesn't accept transparency is crippling. I've got a couple of shape layers with extrusions the rest are flat 2D images in 3D space and for 25 seconds on 25fps and it needs 3 hours to render...
In Ae Preferences:
RAM shared by Ae and Media Encoder: 28.9 GB
In Comp settings:
Mercury GPU Acceleration (CUDA)
I'm not sure where else to make edits in the settings...
