EDIUS 6.0X vs IVY or Sandy Bridge ?
EDIUS supports Sandy Bridge CPU, and recommend Z68 motherboard.

On some internet article wrote :

Ivy bridge CPUs have quick sync 2.0, with proper software, quick sync 2.0 have faster encoding speed than Sandy Bridge quick sync 1.0.

and if the software do not support quick sync 2.0 fully, Ivy CPU encode slower than Sandy CPU.

Does any body knows that EDIUS 6.0X fully support Ivy bridge CPU(quick sync 2.0) or not ?

I'm going to buy a new PC, if EDIUS 6.0X only support Sandy bridge, and use Ivy bridge cannot release the full power, maybe I should consider buy Sandy bridge rather than newer Ivy bridge ?

I have not actually compared speeds but EDIUS 6.07 does do hardware encoding with IVYbridge processors. Apart from actually timing them, I would have said they were the same and the IVYBRIDGE are generally faster all round and the same price.

Also EDIUS 6.5 says it will support Quicksync 2, so if planning to update it makes even more sense to get and IVYBRIDGE.

Thanks for your reply!

I'm using EDIUS 6.06 now, its function is enough for me, so I have no plan to upgrade to 6.5 recently.

I'm afraid that buy IVY bridge new PC, but maybe slower than Sandy bridge due to EDIUS 6.0X only support quick sync 1.0 .....

There a few reasons why Sandbridge is better , it overclocks better , in somecase cheaper. There is some very good info on Tomshardware about, Sandybridge vs Inybridge they do test on the video production unfornatly they only test Adobe. But saying that it is a good reference piont to start.

Another big consideration for some is power consumption. The ivy bridge is a lot less power hungry. This will be a big consideration in my next computer build with all the components.

One of my tech guys worked out how much power was saved by having an Ivybridge as opposed to his older processor and found out with the amount he would save in electricity and the amount he used it, it would pay for itself in a few months.
