I’ve been using an i5 6500/8GB/intel 5600 laptop for a year, and with more complex animations, previewing and rendering is taking much longer.
I just got a i7 9750/16gb/6gb 1660ti gpu, hoping that a side effect would be faster rendering.
I have a dual boot system, Ubuntu 18.04.4 and Windows 10 up to date, and on both, I get maybe a 25% increase in rendering speed, tops.
From let’s say 1.25 seconds a frame to 1 second a frame. Is this what should be expected? Should the CPU be doing most of the heavy lifting for synfig rendering and therefore a 25% increase makes sense for a mid-range i7 from mid-range i5?
Thanks for any insight.
