Intersting to see the Ryzen 7 on par with the much more expensive i9. Those are the 2 mainstream processors. After that your into crazy price i9 and ThreadRipper.

Also the GTX 1660 and RTX 2060 also doing quite well. But, if I could do it all again I would pay the extra £100 and go for the Vega 64 I think.

But that said. In my experience of Vegas and other apps what performs well today could change in the next release with optimized settings and drivers and then totally change again 6 months later.

Yeah I saw and read their page. But. I don't need any tech tips because I had already found my supreme system that there is no one else out there can matched the 14s Red Car Benchmark that I known of at least not in this forum. Just take look at the frame rates. yeah that is 217 frames baby. ALL the experts here tell you differently. But I am lovin mine. Vegas Benchmark speaks great for itself. Sorry I could not resisted.

I have read a few times about 'red car benchmark' where can i get it?

@Deathspawner

Thanks for the latest article on Vegas Pro performance. You have clearly put in a lot of work to try to delve more deeply into what is needed to get a great system for Vegas. Good job!

 

@BruceUSA

Are you getting a case of "tech megalomania?" 😀 Anyway, your results are reflected in the Techgage article - looks like the Vega 64 cards are real winners for Vegas (also popular with some of the more technical members of the DR forums). Too bad the Canadian dollar has sunk so low...for now I can only dream.

I already knew that long ago that any AMD cards will do better in Vegas anyway. I am already way ahead of the techgage testing cards with Vegas. As i said. I already knew what is best for Vegas because i already got the best combo for Vegas.

@BruceUSA I cannot trump your 14s, the best I get is 26s on my rig. But than again, I do not overclock my system while you do. Nothing wrong with overclocking, mind you, I did it myself a lot few decades ago. I still build my systems 'overclock ready' with all the best components, but for different reasons: to rule out system instability due to hardware. Maybe I will go into bios just for the fun of it and beat your 14s!

I edit 1-2 projects every months or so. Never had issues. nada. I own 2 system intel and AMD both system highly overclocked with custom build water cooled.

@BruceUSA
What AMD drivers are you using to get 14s? Do you still get 14s with latest GPU drivers & the new Vegas 16 update? I get 17s reliably using QSV, modest 9900K overclock to 4.9ghz & new drivers... I will test again at 5.1ghz with Vega64 overclocked/undervolted when I get a couple projects out.

And, how does your system perform on:

ParrallaZ Rock 01 Test to MAGIX AVC/AAC MP4 Internet HD 59.94 fps

9900K @ 4.9ghz & Vega 64 LQ stock:

QSV = 29:17... full test..(49% CPU, 5% GPU, 10:33fps)
VCE = 30:45..................(57% CPU, 8% GPU, 9.83fps)
CPU = 34:16 ......….......(69% CPU, 3% GPU)

Vegas is still a hodge-podge of old & new FX, codecs, etc. Results can vary greatly based on FX, codec, Vegas updates, GPU drivers, etc. IMO the ParrallaZ Rock test is a good means to compare Intel & AMD CPUs because GPU/QSV does not have a significant impact.

I tried, but failed 😬.

Just for the sake of testing if BruceUsa's red car's 14s rendering could be bested I overclocked my current rig to 5 GHz, and although this resulted in an reproducible improvement of 3s (from 26s to 23s) rendering time, I put my system back to normal, not overclocked, the speed increase is not worth the possible less stability.

Another fun thing I just did is to lower my i7 real core count from 6 to 4 cores in BIOS. This resulted in a loss of 3s (went from 26s to 29s) on the red car rendering.

Please do. I welcome any one can beat that 14s in this forum.

I tried, but failed 😬.

Just for the sake of testing if BruceUsa's red car's 14s rendering could be bested I overclocked my current rig to 5 GHz, and although this resulted in an reproducible improvement of 3s (from 26s to 23s) rendering time, I put my system back to normal, not overclocked, the speed increase is not worth the possible less stability.

So I am the 14s title holder on the benchmark. Anyone else?

You missed the point: what is the Radeon driver version number you are using?

OC'd 9900K to 5.0 ghz and achieved 15s on Red Car on 6/8 tests. Two were 14s...

I've been completing client work at 4.9ghz with good temps & no problems. I will try the next two weeks at 5.0 ghz. Not planning to go to 5.1ghz. Cooler is a $140 Corsair H150i. I can't hear the radiator fans on it or the liquid-cooled Vega 64 that is still running at stock speeds...

Last changed by TheRhino on 6/17/2019, 3:42 AM, changed a total of 1 times.

Workstation C with $600 USD of upgrades in April, 2021
--$360 11700K @ 5.0ghz
--$200 ASRock W480 Creator (onboard 10G net, TB3, etc.)
Borrowed from my 9900K until prices drop:
--32GB of G.Skill DDR4 3200 ($100 on Black Friday...)
Reused from same Tower Case that housed the Xeon:
--Used VEGA 56 GPU ($200 on eBay before mining craze...)
--Noctua Cooler, 750W PSU, OS SSD, LSI RAID Controller, SATAs, etc.

Performs VERY close to my overclocked 9900K (below), but at stock settings with no tweaking...

--$500 9900K @ 5.0ghz

Ok Bruceusa, thats it, your done and dusted ... “OC'd 9900K to 5.1 ghz and achieved 14s on Red Car on 3/4 tests. One was 13s...” The king is dead.

Just drop it in the skip on the way out.😂
