Pretty to tough to estimate just as it is, but the below has benchmark information which may want to further infer and extrapolate the performance. There are factor on configuration and the machine running encase appl itself

"EnCase Processor Hardware and Configuration Recommendations"
> Device size is not the primary factor that affects the time it takes to process an evidence file; the main factor is the number and type of entries. Running the modules in their default configurations did not have a large impact on the overall processing time. However, modifying these settings can have a large effect on performance.


(see pg 6) on the performance table summarised based on the configuration set

"Quantifying Hardware Selection in an EnCase v7 Environment"
> Based on analysing disk images (created with Tableau Imager) consisted of approximately 240 GB of uncompressed (DD) data and 60GB of compressed (E01) data.
> Using Windows Perfmon, an analysis of the disk activity indicated that both the O/S and NSRL KFF Database channels, as well as the Evidence and Case channels, could be combined with negligible performance impact.
