    DG45ID: What's Required For High MPEG/H.264 Encoding Speed?

    BetterToday

      I have bought a DG45ID system

      with Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9550 @ 2.83GHz

      and 16 GB of RAM

       

      This system was supposed to be very well equipped in order to do video editing, using the on-board graphics adapter.

       

      But doing a benchmark on MPEG/AVI encoding, this website attests only a mediocre performance to my system (see line "MyComputer Hans")...

       

      I'm quite frustrated because I can't edit AVCHD videos fluently with my system...

       

      So my questions are:

       

      1. Why isn't my top-notch semi-pro system sufficient to do the job?
      2. Which type of hardware could possibly increase MPED/AVI/AVCHD encoding/decoding speed to my office PC? What's missing?
