    Optimal rendering performance with no Nvidia card


      Hi, I have an 8 core (32GB or ram) MacPro. I am trying to optimize my CPU usage when using After Effects, as MacPros don't come with Nvidia cards. My question is two-fold. When rendering 4k footage with effects, is it more advantageous to use 5 CPUs at 4GB or RAM each or 7 CPUs at 3GB of RAM each? Secondly, when assigning my disk cache to a drive, is it better to use a non-SSD (USB 3.0) external drive for media cache, or is it more advantageous to point the media cache to my internal CPU (has an SSD drive)? Given that I don't have an external SSD.
