Any problems to expect if upgrading CPU/MB/ and operating system?

Hi Ray

I think, as we spoke of earlier in this thread, that the load seems higher on your Nvidia perhaps due to its processing capability.

Can we assume that the default for your tests is with Calculate VFX on GPU off......or on.

Hi Peter.

No slightly different results with Calculate VFX on GPU off. Tests were done with it on as well as within the export settings Hardware acceleration was applied where it could be.

Results for Calculate VFX on GPU switched off.

Exporting MP4

and exporting HEVC

and then

Finally turning off all GPU acceleration during export.

Won't be doing that test again as the CPU temperature climbed I stopped the export when the CPU got to 67c.

It's never got past 42c until now.
