These days not a lot except for heavy rendering and such when needed in things like multiple layers and so on. Plus the faster the box, the faster the video format (codec) conversions and such as well. I work with Panasonic P2 in all the HD DVC PRO formats as well as AVEC Intra, and also will use both AVCCAM and at times even formats (file structures) from DSLR's of both Canon and Panasonic persuasion.
