Are you sure that while you were having this problem with Premiere Pro you were not updating Windows? running some antivirus? you had many applications open? among other things? Was Premiere Pro or other applications just slow?
Windows not updating. There is windows defender on, which didnt allow me to terminate when I tried on task manager. I've had minimal applications running. Generally it was all adobe apps that were slow, using one at a time incl. prem, AE, lightroom.
Interestingly I have just started rendering a 4 min video with some colour grading in 1080p on premiere and there is a positive change in the systems efficiency.
Any ideas of the processes that are running and which could be switched off?
It may sound a bit cliché but try updating your Adobe applications at last versions, it always helps to have all service packs updated.

I tested it on Bottlenecker and results said 30% my GPU is too weak.
You have an integrated GPU in your new Dell rig. Premiere Pro is probably not detecting your NVIDIA GPU. Can you switch to it in Project Settings? If not, this forum post may assist you in disabling your integrated GPU: Solved: Disabling Integrated Graphics card? - Dell Community After it is disabled, you should be able to designate the NVIDIA GPU as the dedicated GPU for Mercury Engine Playback.
You're absolutely right about the integrated gpu. I had previously disabled it. That have me new issues, disabling one of my monitors, so I enabled it again .
During a premiere render - Both gpus were running at 1 or 2%, while cpu was maxing at 30%. It just felt as though the system wasn't being utilised.
Anyway adobe doesnt have the gtx 1050 as a recomendation which is just my luck; with the whole other host of gtx gpus recommended.
I plan to minimise processes running but right now am not sure which processes are integral and which are piggy backing nonsense.
today there i improvement in the render times.
I still have both GPUs enabled and drivers are up to date.
Render times are not to satisfaction and I am terminating some unessacery processes.
During a render I have observed CPU at up to 100% while GPUs run at up to around 7%.
That will have to do.
Thanks for your help
