Our test with Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0 is performed with a raw two hour AVI file. It is then compressed into DivX format using the latest version codec. We measure the time it takes to encode and then record CPU usage.
Surprisingly that Adobe Premiere Elements likes the faster hard disk drives for its encoding. What we first thought was only a CPU and memory intense application, the HDD also plays a major part in its encoding state.
