I am starting to look at getting a new computer to run CS6 (Production Premium). I tend to use Premiere Pro most than the other apps included.
The current plan is to get a Nvidia GTX 670 (PCIe 3.0) video adapter and use the “hack” until Adobe officially supports it.
I am having a difficult time trying to determine which type of CPU to purchase a LGA 2011 (i7 3820) or a LGA 1155 (i7 3770K).
I can see by the specs that the LGA 2011 processors uses quad memory channels versus dual memory channels for the LGA 1155 used dual memory channels.
Also I noticed that the X70 chipset (for the LGA 2011) has 40 PCIe lanes verus 16 PCIe lanes for the Z77 chipset (LGA 3770K).
My questions are:
For the purpose of running CS6 (mainly Premiere Pro) which one of these CPU types will provide better performance?
I would also like to know (based on recommended CPU/Chipset type) if you have a recommendation for a motherboard to house it?
I understand that there are a lot of other factors that will determine performance; I’m just trying to get past the CPU part of this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It all depends on how deep your wallet is currently. The LGA 2011 is definitely superior to any LGA 1155 Harm has shown you that in his trade-off study.
