New Update Boosts Speed and Performance with Optimization for Latest Intel Chip Technologies
Ottawa, ON - June 14, 2011
Corel today released a free performance enhancement pack for Corel® VideoStudio® Pro X4 that yields groundbreaking speed and functionality. By optimizing for the latest developments in chipset technology of the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family, Service Pack 1 boosts the overall performance of X4 to even greater levels, making the video editing experience smoother, faster and even more enjoyable for users.
Reflecting the growing dominance of AVCHD, Corel is dedicated to delivering maximum results for these workflows. Internal benchmarking has shown speed increases of 206% in SD MPEG-2 to HD H.264 transcode scenarios and similar gains in other H.264 user scenarios*.
“Since their debut earlier this year, the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family has promised to unlock bold new levels of performance on the PC, and that’s exactly what we’re getting within VideoStudio Pro X4.” said Greg Wood, Senior Product Marketing Manager for VideoStudio. “The new Intel optimizations available in VideoStudio Pro X4 Service Pack 1 show dramatic improvements in key AVCHD workflows when compared to X4. Even those using moderately priced computers will benefit, which means even more of our VideoStudio users can experience the overall positive change that this service pack brings.”
In addition to the enhanced compatibility with new chipsets, Service Pack 1 also delivers a variety of fixes and enhancements including:
- Increased H.264 file conversion quality
