- Follow John's suggestions.
- What version of Premiere?
- How much do you use Mercury Playback Engine (MPE) effects and features?
- You say "8tb normal harddisk no ssd" but do not give any details. Depending on your media you may need much faster disk than a single disk speed (i.e. RAID) if for instance you have raw media.
- Depending on the complexity of the codec, you may need to overclock your CPU, see Harm's graphic showing the complexity and disk system performance requirements.
- For 4k video editing your gpu should have much more video RAM and forget the x90 series of GPU's. and just go with the GTX 7xx series but lots of video RAM
thank you John i will do
i use premiere cc
You have not given us any information on your 4K video. Where is it coming from, what camera so we can see what the media is, how complex the codec is or how fast the disk system will have to be to handle it.
I will ues Red epic
For EPIC 5K material think along these lines:
- Dual Xeon 8+ cores, preferably E5-2697 12 cores.
- At least 64 GB RAM, preferably 128 GB when using 12 cores.
- GTX 780 Ti with 6 GB VRAM. Or better, but with at least 6 GB per card.
- A disk setup capable of sustained transfer rates in excess of 800 MB/s.
As you just found out correctly from cc_merchant your simple question of what to use for 4k editing has grown into a enormous monster of a very expensive computer.
I would strongly suggest you turn to a expert video editing computer builder and forum member like Eric at ADK so you do not make a very expensive mistake trying to do it on your own.
What applications are you dealing with here? What codecs?
