How to improve transcoding speed
« on: June 27, 2018, 03:06:00 PM »
Typical settings:
x264
mp3 (lame)
MKV Muxer

Hardware:
Intel i7 6700k
32GB Ram
Geforce 980
512GB SSD

Will I see any noticable speed difference transcoding if I upgrade?
- CPU
- Video card
- SSD

No/no/no. If you prefer speed over compression rate and quality, use the Nvidia H.264 hardware accelerated encoder instead of x264.

Noted.

What about performance from hardware?

Where would I see the best performance upgrade?
