    PPCC2017 moving away from AMD gear advice??


      Hi, I'm after some advice with regards to upgrading my hardware to operate better with the latest Premiere Pro CC. A few years ago I bought a customised machine with CPU and GPU from AMD. This ran perfectly until about cc2015 and it has been very cumbersome ever since. I have turned to a less powerful laptop with intel processor to handle jobs but its time to bring my desktop up to speed for 4k projects (with proxies).


      My main question is: If I replace the CPU will that have the biggest impact on speed and compatibility or is it crucial to have a GPU with CUDA as well? What should I look for when replacing my processor?


      Any help is appreciated!
