First of all, you are running an outdated version of CPU-Z and only the 32 bit version. It would be helpful if you were to present this while running Version 1.64.0 x64.
Second, why does your client not update to versions 6.03 and continues using 6.00 of PR? Does that also apply to his video driver, and other drivers?
His CPU is a simple dual core without HT on an outdated 1156 platform, limited by only 8 GB DDR-1333 memory using an on-board Intel graphics chip. That makes it a borderline system for easy codecs like DV, HDV and P2 but woefully inadequate for AVCHD or DSLR material.
My suggestion is to get a completely new system that is more in line with his editing requirements, but what it should be depends to a very large degree on his source material and his editing needs. What material and what number of tracks, what multi-cam edits, what delivery format, etc.
Hi Harm, and thanks for the response.
The Adobe software was downloaded one week ago from Creative Cloud, so I'm not surprised updates haven't been attempted yet. Driver updates are handled intermittently as needed.
Codecs would mostly be AVCHD and DSLR, so I am told.
The cameras being used are Panasonics, model AG-HMC80P. Output: PH1080/60i (as displayed on the camera).
The cameras are new, as is the software. Kinda a new venture for us here, so your comments are very helpful. I'll have to push for a budget for a new system to go with the cameras/software. Do you have a recommended system build thread on here? Anything for varying price points?
I will continue my search on the forums for information.
It depends on the budget available. It is easy to configure a $2 K system, a $ 5 K system and a $ 10+ K system, but a lot depends on the budget and whether you or your client want an off-the-shelve tier 1 system, a custom built system or a DIY system.
It may be overkill in your and your client's situation, but I built a new system which comes out at € 7,300 as a DIY system, when buying something similar at a custom builder it may end up at around € 12 K and when buying a system with similar performance from a tier 1 company, you may see the tab go up to far over € 20 K.
