Posting some render times for latest MacBook Pro and BlackMagic Pro EGPU

Over the years, I've been tracking in a draft post render times for the first 10 minutes of a conference video.  It takes in two HD streams, resizes them with some voice and renders. It's not typical of anything, but I still track it cause I can.

Thought I would share since I just ran another one on the new MacBook Pro Core i9 with the built in AMD Radeon Pro Vega 20 and also running with the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 EGPU (BlackMagic Pro).

Spoiler: Pretty impressed with BlackMagic Pro EGPU. It also works great for editing on 4K monitors. Much better then when plugging 4K monitor directly into the USB-C port.

So Peter, was the desktop computer at the bottom of the sheet a PC? Being at the bottom makes me think it's the oldest machine also, yet it is quite a bit faster than all the others?

So, just to ask the obvious (in the most non-offending way possible). It looks like you list the newest computer on top; why have you gone with all the other 'type' computers when the oldest machine (PC) on the list is quite a bit faster than any of them to date?

Thank you for asking gently (no offense taken). This has been my own personal list I've been keeping for a while and I just happened to keep it as a draft in wordpress because it was convenient.  I have always added to the table on the top as I do tests, though not tried to make any order.  I've actually done quit a few more tests on different computers, but these are the ones I'm most confident in.

Just to really confuse you, the one I did not list was the oldest test I did back in 2016 on the same desktop computer (One on the bottom) but before I upgraded the video card from NVIDIA 970 to the one I have now, the 1080ti.  What's really odd is that when I tested the same video 2 years ago on the old NVidia card it encoded in 3 minutes (much faster than the 5.3 minutes it takes now).  What makes that even more odd, is I've also upgrade to a faster disk (PCIe, 3000ish mb/sec read and write) so it makes no sense to me why it's now 5.3 minutes when it was 3 minutes 2 years ago on an older version of Premiere Pro.  That all said, I did not track which version of premiere pro I was running so that throws in another variable (not sure how much that affects time).

Feel free to ask me anything about these numbers. I won't take it personally.

Good stuff!

Yes, putting it on the top is appropriate. I have in my database a field for generic notes and I have pages and pages from various clients over the years. I encourage them to always put the most recent on top, so you can see it immediately on opening.

The PP version probably do make a difference and no doubt the Adobe guys add more code for more features as time goes on and also as the horsepower of our computers go up.

Did you ever try Bill Gehrke​'s PP benchmark, it's a PP project with a bunch of things meant to test different aspects of our systems. Sort of like what you are doing, but with more tailored timelines. Here's a link: BillG Video Editing Blog

I don't suppose you can add a column that includes the hardware cost?
