    Editing with  4k MXF files..CPU or GPU?

    lou4uandme Level 1

      Hi all,

      I have just switched over from editing DLSR footage to MXF files (canon 300). I  noticed a huge drop in performance while editing the mxf files.

      So, I plan to upgrade my 7 year old system.  My question is...Which will yeild better performance while editing, the graphics card or the cpu?

      For example, if you had the choice, would you get a Quad core with a top quadro card or a 6 core and a geforce card?

      I am not sure if the cores will help more with scrubbing, layers,etc  when it comes to the MXF files.

      Thanks,

      Lou
