I have a p4 HT machine with 512 dual channel memory and a couple of 80 gig 7200rpm drives.
I’m starting to do quite a bit of divx encoding and notice that my processor only runs at about 55%
Does anyone have any suggestions or a link on how to set up hardware, source and output to get maximum usage from my processor and increase the speed of the encoding?
I have support for SATA and realize that would help, what is the best way to have this drive configured?? as the system? another slave??
Now, don’t throw anything at me, I’m using a quick and easy program called Dr. Divx to encode/archive my video. I mention this because I plan on using it quite a bit, but iit doesn’t have many features to customize. BUT, I’m open to using another process if dr.divx is the problem/bottleneck.
I get 70% cpu usage when using cce 2.5 for dvd’s and such, I’d be happy getting that for my divx encodes.
I guess on the bright side, I still have enough computer GHZ to do some other things while this process takes place.
Thanks in advance.
