Question about Computers & Internet
My 5 year old Dell Inspiron 1150 has a 2.6 GHz Celeron and 512 MB RAM and just bogs down when I process hi-def video files to standard definition. I've decided to increase RAM and replace the Celeron with a Pentium 4 to get the larger on-chip cache and the socket 478 P4s all seem to have hyperthreading. I doubt my board will support HT so the question is will it just ignore HT or will it cause a problem? Anyone have any horror stories along this line?
If you are encoding HD to standard then this process will use 100% of your processing power, the increase in memory will shorten the process a little bit, even if you had a dual core system there would be no change, there is no point trying to do anything else while encoding because your machine will become unresponsive and could alter the quality of the re-encoded video, hyper transport makes no difference whatsoever even though the P4 does support it
