A Video Editing PC is only as strong as its weakest link

The performance of a video editing PC workflow directly relates to how much power you can give to it. So editing tools such as Adobe Premiere Pro will get faster and handle more complexity the better the RAM, Processor or Graphics Card you put in your system. However, all the components need to be balanced or you will end up with one component underused whilst the rest are maxed-out.

Video editing performance improves significantly with increased graphics card power. This will hold true until you reach the limit of a supporting component, such as the memory or the CPU. So, we are back to talking about balancing components, which will be a theme throughout our discussion of Video Editing Computers for Adobe Premiere Pro.

Video editing software utilises both the CPU and graphics card for processing. As all our Punch video editing PC builds come with graphics cards, the job of the processor is the efficient transmission of the graphics processing into Adobe Premiere Pro. We have balanced the power of the processor against the performance of the overall build, so you don’t end up buying power you won’t use.

RAM is the component that determines the size of files you can edit and actively preview. So broadly speaking you will need 16GB for editing 1080p footage. 32GB for editing layered 1080p or simple 4K footage. 64GB for HDR and layered 4K edits and 128 GB for footage over 4K.  Large quantities of memory in the system is usually better than lower amounts running at a higher speed.

Even at entry level, with video editing  you are moving large files around your system quickly, creating the need for sophisticated disk configurations. We use M.2 SSD primary drives for your operating system and software, keeping your editing workstation responsive even at high load. Large SSD scratch drives keep your current project’s media files and edits delivered to Adobe Premiere Pro in real time.

Advanced Computers for Professional Video Editing in Adobe Premiere Pro

In our High End and above Video Editing PC builds we move to the high bandwidth X299 Chipset, giving you the infrastructure necessary to move such large volumes of data through your Adobe Premiere Pro workflow. With up to 44 PCI lanes available with the Core i9 processor, this is what gives you the ability to have two or three graphics cards and fully utilise this added power. The two additional memory channels on X299 means the 64GB and 128GB configurations of RAM are still able to move data to and from the central processor without bottlenecks.

In our High End and above systems, we move to multiple Graphics Cards for improved workflow on complex, multi-layered, high-definition visualisations. At the top of our range, you step into Quadro professional graphics, with improved processing and VRAM designed to support complex 4K and 8K Adobe Premiere Pro workflow.

Step-up to professional SSD and HDD storage for speed and peace of mind. Get a Samsung 960 Pro scratch drive and see no drop in performance whatever the size of file you are writing to it. Benefit from 24TB storage arrays that are backed up by BarraCuda pro Rescue data recovery plans.
