You know it does. Time is the most precious commodity, the one thing you can never get back. So when someone or something makes you wait, it sucks.
It particularly sucks when you have to wait on your PC. It’s your computer, after all, and it should do the work and be quick about it. For many tasks, it is quick, almost instantaneous. Some, though, require so much work that the computer can spend a lot of time doing them, leaving you waiting. Tasks that involve working with different types of media often fall into that category.
Which is exactly why we have HDXPRT.
It gives you a way to compare how long different PCs require to perform some common media-manipulation tasks. Because those times can be significant—sometimes many seconds, but also sometimes many minutes—HDXPRT can give you valuable information that you can factor into your PC buying plans.
After all, the faster a PC is at this sort of work, the less time you’ll spend waiting on it—and that’s a good thing.
