    Graphic card update for better color grading in PP

    Alexander Eberhard Level 1

      I am currently running the following system:

       

      i7 4790

      32 Ram

      multiple SSDs

      EVGA GTX 970 FTW ACX 2.0

      Latest PP CC version

      Win 7 pro

       

      I am mainly editing GH4 internal 4K footage, 1080p 60FPS (200 mbps) or ProRes 4.2.2 with (800 mbps) 4K.

       

      When doing color correction with Lumetri, Red Giant Colorista III or Denoiser II it is getting laggy. Since all this is GPU supported I was wondering if an updated graphic card would help. Here I was looking at the new EVGA GTX 1070 FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 with 8 GB.

       

      Would that really help speed up my workflow? Or shall I rather invest in 2011-3 setup update including 6 core and DDR4 etc later on?

       

      I am also still running a 650 PSU. Would that still be ok?!
