It appears that Sony Vegas scales the rendering proportionate to the number of cores.
“Interesting – Duo Core exactly twice the time of John’s Quad Core!”
The E6700 is a dual-core 2.66Ghz processor, my QX6700 is a 2.66Ghz quad-core so, all other things being equal, one would expect the QX6700 to be twice as fast. What’s interesting to me is that the Vegas code is apparently fully optimized for multiple processors and really does scale proportionately to the number of cores and speed of the processors. This is not something that can be said of all multi-processor software. Good job, Sony!
And it also appears that Sony is optimized for AMD. I am sure AMD is a fine line, but am wondering why they would do that, when the bulk of the industry goes Intel.
