This has been discussed ad nauseum. Please search the forum. The short and long version of it is, that neitehr AE nor Premiere will ever be able to go beyond a certain level of parallel processing. It's inherent in how at the most rudimentary video works - sequential processing of frames. It doesn't matter if you could run an effect on full throttle on a hundred Xeons or a stack of GPUs as long as you need to decode a video stream or re-encode it which is limited by the CoDec itself, your sorage capacity and speed and a million other factors like audio processing for instance. Conversely, certain internal operations cannot be parallelized for mathematical reasons like linear temporal progression to ensure consistent results. Therefore in the end none of your questions really matter - you could buy a two year old core7i at a bargain price and compared to the most recent version of the same processor you would likely not see any difference in AE. Everything else is speculation. As I said, a lot of this are limitations in the algorithms themselves and whether or not Adobe optimize their apps further and in what ways is something they may not even know themselves. Get whatever you can afford and what makes sense to you. There is really no point in trying to make everything perfect and burn your money on expensive components that will not have any practical benefit.
Is Adobe going to allow Ae full support for multi-threading sooner or later?
that's the foreseeable plan, but don't wait for it.
Should i go with th e i7 6950x or consider single Xeon or even wait for the new processors coming (new i9 and new Xeon family coming soon)?
I'd go with fast processing power, a lot of RAM, SSD's and a decent GPU over multiple cores
Will Premiere instead get enough advantage of two processors to make it worth it? Or for the overall performance is better to go with a sigle high speed processor?
same as previous question.
instead of gazillion cores, buy more RAM - at least 32GB. SSD's with a lot of storage - one for reading, one for writing, one for cache, and a decent GPU - Premiere uses it a lot, and Ae in recent version is starting to render some effects on the GPU.
I can't find no more good resources on the web
this is the most valuble resource I have found for this matter: https://www.pugetsystems.com/solutions/content_creation/post.php
Did you get the hardware info you came for? If you like a certain response, please mark that expert's answer as the correct one. It would be appreciated.
