Hi, my PC has a i7 2600 quad core cpu, since I purchased it in April its been perfectly fine.
In the last 2 days my Media Encoder renders have been really really slow, allowing the problem to run a 4 minute render took 6 hours
Before the problem surfaced I would use the "details" option in task manger to set the after effects background process priority to real time, same for ME
I now have to run it on normal because my CPU has decided to die on me somehow and slows my pc down by cycling between low usage and 100% !!!
Other pc specs are GTX v and 16gb RAM
Have something to add?
