Hardware upgrade

Post by Hexagon » Sat Jan 14, 2017 8:20 am

I'm slowly planning to upgrade my ancient computer. As I use ConvertX2DVD very often it's hardware requirements are part of my selection process

CPU
a] Can ConvertX2DVD use as many cores as there are availble in the CPU or is it for example limited to 4 cores?
b] If limited, does a hyperthreading core count as 1 or 2 cores.

Or is the CPU (almost) irrelevant if I get a videocard with CUDA support?

Hello,

Yes, CxDVD will use all cores/resources available for encoding process...
Like CUDA can only be used for H264 encoding (when DVD video uses Mpeg-2), you can't use your grahic card to do the video encoding task.

Thanks Cedric.

I'm not sure I understand your answer.
ConvertX2DVD is used for creating DVDs, as you very well know :D ; does that mean it doesn't benefit from CUDA because it's Mpeg-2?
Or does CUDA help when the source files are are H264? (decoding)
