The cover story of the July 2010 issue of the print publication of the popular Videomaker magazine features an overview of Adobe CS5 Production Suite.
The article mentions the additional hardware requirements, but certainly doesn't get into the depth seen here on the Adobe Premiere Hardware Forum.
For example, under Tech Specs for the processor it indicates a 64 bit Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon 64 (Intel Core2 Duo or AMD Phenom II recommended). Memory MInimum: 2GB of Ram (4GB or more recommended). Storage: 7200 RPM hard drive for editing compressed video formats; RAID 0 for uncompressed.
There will be a future article of the publication that will focus on Premiere, but this is an overview of the Production Suite.
If you can pick up a copy of VIdeomaker in your part of the world please take a look and provide your thoughts about the article.
Videomaker magazine (which I do subscribe to, but really more for the advertisements and/or new equipment announcements) is known for their very shallow technical depth. For instance when they do a survey on a subject they just go out and list all the manufacturers of say tripods and list a couple of characteristics and no testing or opinions of great or poor characteristics, so they are appealing to the very amateur crowd. Articles like the Overview article I just gloss over. In this case they just listed Adobe's minimum requirements and presented no experienced hands-on data as to what it really takes to be productive.
