    Intel i7 Dual Core Processor - Ok to use for Premiere Pro?

    Dean.Sonetirot

      Hi everyone,

       

      I am looking into purchasing the following laptop from Best Buy as below:

       

      HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 15.6" 4K Ultra HD Touch-Screen Laptop - Intel Core i7 - 16GB Memory - 512GB Solid State Drive Bla…


      The only thing I'm worried about is the processor being dual-core (and not quad-core). From my research, quad-core is always better for video editing. However, since it has a 2.9-GHz 7th Gen i7-7500U CPU, would this laptop be sufficient for editing 4K resolution files in Premiere Pro?

       

      Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
