Intel i7 8700k or i5 8400?

Postby daiwang » Mon Sep 03, 2018 2:23 am

I'm looking into getting a new computer for my conversion needs. I'm currently running a 2nd gen Core i5 cpu which takes 3-4 hours to convert a 2hr video file at 1080p with 6k bitrate into a DVD. My options are $1000 for a Intel i7 8700k with 16GB ram or $380 for an Core i5 8400 with 12gb ram. I really don't know how fast the 8th Gen Intel CPUs convert using ConvertXtoDVD. If the conversion time between the 2 CPUs isn't night and day difference, I would rather save some money. Maybe some of you can chimp in on typically how long it takes you guys to convert a certain file with certain time/bitrate/resolution into DVD. TIA.

I'm using Intel i5 second generation with 32 Gb RAM.
The way I do it is to first convert the movie to mpg in Aiseesoft Video Converter Ultimate. Set ConvertX for smart rendering. And that will take about 45 to 50 mins. for a movie of about 2 hrs. Plus another 20 to 25 mins. for conversion.

I would get a fast cpu. I haven't noticed much difference from 16 Gb to 32 Gb.
You will need more RAM if you will be doing video editing. The transitions and filters are RAM hungry.
