AME RENDERING CAUSES COMPUTER TO STUTTER BUT PREMIERE AND AFTEREFFECTS IS FINE!

Since recent updates to Adobe Media Encoder my Mac [3.2 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7 64GB Ram] stutters when I render anything! I thought buying the latest Mac would speed things up!

 

The same render direct from After Effects or Premiere or a third party Encoder has no problem and I can carry on working. The renders take eaxctly the same amout of time! 

 

Why is AME taking up all the CPU? I can't even use a browser while it is rendering! 

 

Are there any controls to suppress the number of cores it utilizes? I have tried assigning RAM in different proportions to the Adobe packages. I have tried switching between hardware and software rendering. These does not solve the problem.

 

Please help!

Thanks Shivangi, as I said the problem is with Media Encoder not Premiere or AfterEffects. 

The problem is the same irrespective of the memory I assign to AME, Premiere or AfterEffects.

 

Of course this is a mac Mini but it is the top spec i7 with 64GB. and the problem is the same when I switch to software render which would negate the lack of GPU power...
