Might be caused by:
- Relatively slow 4-core CPU without HT
- Only 16 GB memory
- Slow EVO SSD, especially in writing
- Use of a GREEN disk, which is a curse on any editing system
- Lack of tuning
- Not having the Intel video chip disabled in BIOS
If you go to the Hardware Forum/Tweaker's Page, they have articles and advise on setup of the computer, and well ... the reasons for having either multiple FAST drives or a large RAID 0 (say, 4-5 3+ TB drives) past your system drive. There's a massive amount of in/out of cache for both system & PrPro involved, and putting all media AND cache/database files on one Green drive with all other functions on one SSD with system and all ... isn't a very fast setup. Adding another fast internal drive and putting some things on that, some things on the current Green, and some on the system SSD would at least improve things somewhat. Other than that, cc merchant is a very experienced person. Not big on long responses, but a lot IN his/her comments ...
I didn't even think to disable the iGPU
You are completely correct on this. I have been watching Premiere max out the RAM in no more than a minute. My next right, I think I am gonna get a Xeon with 64GB RAM, 2x 850 EVOs, and 3x 4TB WD Black drives.
My problem is that Premiere needs more than what I have, and that I need to upgrade.
