Re: Vista and Integrated Graphics Card
The slowest component for the work you want to do will be the CPU. Movie
Maker will use the CPU to do its work, not the GPU.
You can get about a 50 percent speed up on video encoding if you get a
laptop with the SSE4 (or 4.1) instruction set.
However, only the newest Penyrn laptops will have that instruction set, and
I have not seen any available in the stores yet, but should show up any day
Also, you encoder has to be aware of (coded for) the new SSE4 instruction
set as well or you won't see the speed up in encoder processing. Some are
aware, but I don't know if Movie Maker is yet.
Also, you mean 2GB (Giga Bytes) , not 2mb mille? bits.
