Dont think proxy will help with Prodad plugins.
I found going from four to six cores an immense lift, and then from the 970 to 1060/6Gb another major lift. Running 32GB of new RAM also. All on internal SSD drives, though your AE work would push this. Just as a comparison.
Thank you for the great tech support here peeps!
I will probably upgrade to the Intel 18 core i9 and wait 'til the software catches up to it.
It will definitely be an improvement to what I have now, even with my 500GB SSD the PC performance leaves much to be desired.
What does Premiere benefit from the most? I am sure it is an "all of the above" type of thing to prevent bottlenecks.
Also with 18 cores it would be nice to be able to still use my PC for other things while rendering out a project.
Rendering should definitely make use of many cores...
Playback while meshing layered effects? Boggles my mind... Is it GPU or CPU intensive?
A pre-made (I don't build them anymore, just upgrade) i9 PC will come with the latest GPU and tons of ram...
The GPU and CPU will theoretically be the fastest the market has to offer... So 64GB ram?
This will probably be overkill if Adobe is not ready to make use of the CPU's... But my Cakewalk Sonar music software with "load balancing" makes use of 88 cores!
I will look into this "proxy workflow" aspect too, thanks for the suggestion... Will look it up on YouTube. If you can link me to a tutorial on proxy workflows please do. I do not like pre-rendering clips because it is destructive and going back to tweak things becomes a hassle... but, if it would free up some headroom then that may be my only workaround at this point.
Any more advice on this topic is greatly appreciated!
Again thanks for the tips peeps!
Best place for the real tech advice on PrPro/AfterEffects & hardware is the Hardware forum ...
And of course, Bill Gehrke's PPBM page, the "Tweaker's Page it used to be called ...
Bill has a zipped project you can download & run ... with several system monitors included ... just load it, run an export, and it gets real-time data logs on every subsystem of your computer that can be compared with every other test run on any computer. Awesome data on what actually works.
Bill is very active on the Hardware forum ... also Jeff Pulera (safeharbor11), who works for a company of that name buildlng rigs to spec. And Roninedits, a number of other very experienced people at editing and hardware.

@ RexRed: :There are good scores with my Premiere Pro BenchMark (PPBM) with 18 core Xeon's and I have one Theadripper 16 core score for you to see on the CPU page of my web site. It is interesting to see cost effectiveness AMD has to offer. Now of course not all Premiere and AE software modules have great multithreading but with the CPU intensive test of the benchmark it uses all the threads that you can throw at it. There is an upper Windows limit that you can see from the result of one poor soul that invested in two 18-core Xeon's and only was able to use one of the two CPU's. If you do go Intel please test with the benchmark to give us a new reference point with two additional cores and the 4.4 GHz clock it will probably be very close to 100 seconds with my CPU benchmark test, it will definitely be the fastest PPBM CPU score!
