what is the fastest cpu i can get to render video in windows live movie maker

i tried a i7 3920xm on my laptop and get aprox 4 min to render a 2h30 min audio with static picture movie in movie maker i would like to know if using a desktop processor would cut the time even more and what processor would be the fastest

I agree if the I7 wasn't fast enough then I would go with the two Xeon's.

I'm not sure you should be purchasing a Xeon when you're using Windows Movie Maker.

Yeah, that's a whole 'nother topic...but I was thinking the same thing.

3930k would put a dent in it .. try upgrading the hard drive in the laptop to an ssd drive that should make a bigger impact..
they fail to mention all these processors are in the 1000+ range just the processor.. with out any other hardware.. so 3930k would be your best bet..

ok so heres my confusion im looking at the i7-3930k it runs at 3.2 GHZ but has 12MB cache the i7-3820 its base clock is 3.6 GHZ but only 10MB so what processor will render faster the less clock speed with more cache or the faster clock speed with less cache, if its the lower speed and more cache then surely i should get then the i7-3960X that runs at 3.3GHZ base clock speed but has 15MB cache

My second question then is i could buy a system from overclockers a 3820 that they overclock a to 4.5GHZ would this improve render time http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=BU...

my main goal is to try get my render time down in windows movie maker live as low as possible but i just dont have a clue what i7 processor will do the job the fastest

I understand i need a good SSD ive been told a good graphics card wont help the rendering much as its mainly cpu intensive so thats why im trying to find out what is the best cpu to go with, i already bought the best mobile i7 money could buy it did cut the rendering from 8 min down to 4 min but its a mobile and im thinking switch to desktop its more powerful so should cut the time even more, i did notice however on the task manager my cpu performance never realy went above 30% usage when encoding that also bothered me why windows movie maker live didnt use more cpu, but i suppose thats the limitations in the software

The 3930K has 6 cores and 12 threads, while the 3820 only has four cores and 8 threads. Generallly the LGA 1155 i7-3770K will outperform the 3820.

Investing hundreds of dollars in hardware to use MovieMaker doesn't make much sense.

Anyway, an AMD FX8120 OC'ed to 4.x Ghz is a very good value for productivity uses like rendering, for less money.

At least it would match MovieMaker more and/or allow you to safe some money which you can invest in video editing software. ;)

well it really boils down to how much your willing to invest in a system... there are things like http://www.cyberlink.com/products/mediaespresso/compare... that take advantage of graphics cards try using program like this .. also http://www.roxio.com/enu/products/creator/suite/system-... it may just be the software that your using.. also laptop cpus are generally slower then your typical desktop counter part because of the thermal and power requirements. you could go with a 3930k and have a 6 core cpu over clock it to 3.6 or 3.8 GHZ you could get a board with 64 GB of ram and run a ram drive and to load your video software onto and then do all your conversions that way if your really that concerned about it.. this is over kill for movie maker though..
