I recently upgraded my Mac system and now have 24GB RAM, 3.33 GHz 6- core intel xeon processor and ati Radeon hd 5770 1GB graphics card
I am not seeing the increases in performance i had hoped for and while watching the activity monitor during an export i see that premiere is only using about 10% of the processor on average and never more than 50%. The same issue with the Ram. The most i have ever seen it use is about 50%
Is the problem the Graphics card?
I have a faster processor and 3X the Ram of my partners Mac and mine doesnt seem to offer any better performance.
As we speak im running some GoPro footage that has been through after effects for optics compensation through compressor. Going from .mov files to prores 422LT and the same thing is happening, CPU is running at about 30% and only using 3GB of the 24GB RAM.
