    MBP 15 vs XPS 15. Interesting take on the speed with different software from Premiere to Power Director to Final Cut Pro. Judge for yourself.

    It's well known that Adobe Media Encoder is really bad on the Mac. How bad? I tested it on El Capitan vs Win10 Bootcamp. Same 12 core Mac Pro, same settings, same project, rendering on the CPUs.

    The Mac version was four times slower than the Windows version.

    The hardware isn't the issue.

    I still wonder how the **** Adobe is still around. Their software is crap, but somehow irreplaceable.

    Well their software is the best in terms of cross app integration, file format comparability, and creating industry pushing standards.

    On Windows the apps run fantastic. On the Mac they just run slower but it's only noticeable in the video based apps.

    A business' wet dream, captive customers depending on your products, paying high prices and nowhere to go. Gold.

    But, Power Director smoking FCP on its own turf wasn't even funny.

    FCP's r Nader engine is still limited to Sierra's OpenCL 1.2. On Windows it's 2.0 and the GPU drivers are more mature. Macs have always been known for usability not power.
