Hey guys, I thought it would be useful if we share some After Effects Benchmark results here.

My specs:

  • i7 3820 @ 3,6GHz (= not OC)
  • AsRock X79 Extreme 6
  • 4×8GB Corsair 1600mhz cl10 RAM low profile
  • Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti Windforce 2X OC, 3GB GDDR5
  • 256gb samsung ssd
  • 3×1,5TB Seagate Barracuda Green (for Raid 5)
  • 730w beQuiet! PSU
  • Thermaltake WaterCooler 2.0 Performer
  • Fractal Design Define R4 Case

1. slashcam-Benchmark, can be found here: http://benchmark.slashcam.de/ (german site) Direct link to aep: http://benchmark.slashcam.de/AE_RENDERTEST.aep

71 seconds in CS6

2. CS6 CUDA Benchmark: http://forums.creativecow.net/thread/2/1019120 This Benchmark tests mainly the GPU.

9 minutes 28 seconds

3. Total Benchmark by Brian Maffit: http://www.media-motion.tv/aebenchmarks.html

first part: 9 seconds,

second part: 2 minutes 27 seconds.


I’m wondering if I did anything wrong with this test, it shouldn’t take this long for the second part.

I’ve made the experience that there are significant speed changes between CS5 and CS6. you might also be around 70 seconds using CS6. also, the output drive was important, I could only get the 71 seconds when rendering to an ssd.

    See..
    we have almost the same specs but you get half of the render time!
    Is this tipe of Render very influenced by ram quantity maybe?

    Not really… This project doesn’t require a lot of memory. It’s the CPU clock that makes the difference ;)

    how dare you beating my record! :)

    @Stro88: I guess you are not using multiprocessing right now? you only have 6gb of ram but 8 cpu threads. you should at least have 2gb per thread to be able to use all threads while rendering.
