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.

 

 

Rather than have the system encode a file, we made some drastic changes to the movie file; we added in over 100 transitions, effects and so on. We then timed how long it took the system to render the changes while saving to each drive and interface.

 

Here you can see that eSATA is a definite must as USB simply doesn't have the bandwidth to do this. Firewire does help but still it is nowhere near the Freeagent Pro's eSATA interface.
