After Effects preview performance

I just recently upgraded my RAM from 64 to 128GB. I also upgraded my I9 processor from 6 cores to 8 cores. In addition, I  upgraded my Nvidia video card from a single Geforce 1080 to  2 parallel Geforce RTX 2080 TI's

 

Yet, I am seeing virtually no improvement with AE previews. This makes no sence to me, so I figure I must have something setup wrong?

I appreciate any help on this.

thanks

Nothing wrong. Sorry, but the blunt answer to this is that you don't understand how AE works under the hood, no offense. There's literally a quadrizillion posts on this under the "How to optimize performance?" subject heading and I've equally answered as many times in such post, but here's the short version - again for the umpteenth time:

 

  • mostly single-threaded, linear processing due to temporal integrity considerations
  • AE uses a full-buffer renderer that doesn't do any fancy tiles or whatever that could be processed in parallel
  • some really old paradigms and approaches to certain things you would do differently today
  • barely any GPU usage to begin with
  • GPU usage gets easily disabled/ overridden and the program falls back to software-only rendering depending on specific project structures liek complex nesting or using non-accelerated effects.

 

So, to cut a long story short, where AE is concerned you have spent a lot of money for nothing. Feel free to look up all those other posts for even more detailed answers, but suffice is to say that you don't achieve anything by throwing hardware at AE.
