    We tried to improve our video rendering times significantly with a hardware upgrade, and the results were... interesting.

      U mb should try to turn off hypertrading. since software is capped at certain amount of threads u might benefit from it.

    The 9 minute render time wasn’t that crazy in the first place, seems like a waste of time to upgrade so soon.

              I bet there's no food made in that kitchen....I really admired you so totally, Linus, until you didn't use a funnel! I love funnels! I think this video proves Adobe Premiere kind of sucks. You should check out Blackmagic's editing software.

                In Windows you can setup your energy settings to not throttle down the cpu if its not uses so it runs at 100% Speed the whole time.

                      'Precision water pouring...' and spills it almost immediately. Use a bloody funnel, they're not expensive, unlike the hardware you spill water all over :D

XMP may not work best with swapfile. However as is at least it won't fry! ya i know months after this vid so appologies! perhaps XMP on a small SSD twin RAID stripe with swapfile on that.
