getting only 60fps... PLEASE READ!

Post by lt200420 » Sat Sep 11, 2010 8:54 pm

I just upgraded my parts with a fresh install of Win 7 x64 Ultimate (3.4ghz AMD Phenom II 965BE 125w, ASRock 870 Extreme3 MOBO (with latest chipesets), 4gb (2x2gb) Dual Channel DDR3 1600). My OS HDD (HDD where source and converting is done) is a 500gb Seagate 7200rpm with 32mb cache (with always at least 150gb free). I have all necessary codecs installed, graphics drivers installed (ATI 3870HD 512mb (running in PCI-e 2.0)), and all latest Windows Update updates.

Using build, I selected the tasty multicore option of 4 (which is new to me) and I am only getting 60-62fps (file is a 4.36gb HD movie (.mkv)). My old PC was an AMD 6000+ 3.0ghz, Gigabyte 690G MOBO, 4gb (2x2gb) Dual Channel DDR2 800) and i would get around 76fps.

All convertxtodvd settings are set to default except 2 pass is selected and no menu selected.

Can anyone tell me why my fps are weak? and how to improve it?

EDIT: side question: Also, why is it that most conversions end up being below 3gb (average around 2.2gb for me)?

Any info would be greatly appreciated. If more system info is needed I would be glad to provide it.

I'm only getting about 20 to 28 fps with a P4 3GHz on a WinXP OS and I'm happy .... What's the rush :lol:
As for the size, it dosen't matter. It's only the quality that counts and with CX2D you can rest assured that you are getting the best. Having said that do what JJ said. Read that thread.

And more specifically with your query about the size of the output, read the other sticky about Answers to most of your conversion questions.
