    Edit Suite Spec Help Please - Quadro p4000?

    lauras53492317

      I'm in the process of purchasing a new pc to use for editing although I am by no-means a computer expert so any advice on the following spec would be very much appreciated!

      I've been quoted for the following:

       

      Fujitsu Celsius M740 3.60GHz Intel Xeon 6 Core

      32GB RAM

      512GB SSD

      2TB Hard Drive

      Nvidia Quadro P4000 8GB Graphics card

      Windows 10

       

      This Graphics card is not on the approved list so does anyone know if it will work?!  Also, am I best sticking to windows 7 or going for windows 10?  Any advice would be gratefully received.  Thank you

          the official adobe system requirements hardware list isn't maintained by adobe for new hardware, so its missing lots of new hardware. there have been some driver problems with nvidia cards, but overall people seem to be using the new nvidia cards just fine.

           

          windows 10 is slightly faster, but also loaded with lots and lots of spyware and advertising that needs to be disabled for best performance and privacy. windows 10 will also have more security features/updates as win7 is being dropped by microsoft. they want everyone on win10 to sell them stuff thru the windows store. also, win10 updates tend to re-enable the spyware and telemetry, so its a constant battle to keep that stuff disabled.

              I am guessing that is an Intel Xeon E5-1650 v4 processor   I do not have test results on that version but I do on the slightly slower v3 and it is not a great result.  Almost any current 6-core i7 processor is much faster.  Also the Quadro P4000 with 1792 CUDA cores and 8GB of RAM is around $800 dollars while a GTX 1070 has 1920 CUDA cores 8GB of video RAM and a faster Memory Clock for only $400, but of course Fujitsu does not offer GTX GPU's or i7 Processors.

               

              So I do not like that configuration.  But if you have to buy a complete system depending on what it costs, it probably will work for you.  We do not know the complexity of your media.  There is one option that I would have to have and that is "PCIe-SSD, 1x 512 GB M.2 NVMe Highend card" to use for your video projects and media

                the i7 6-core is the same cpu as the xeon, its just a lower quality xeon re-branded as an i7. they should perform similar according to clock speeds, and the only way an i7 would be "much faster" is if its overclocked.
