Previous Intel i7-2600K build was quite awhile ago and surprised took me this far. I do a lot of 4K editing/rendering in Adobe Premiere and it would be very difficult to have a smooth workflow without doing workarounds such as Media Encoder to edit a lower quality copy. That only fixed the editing part but when it came time to rendering it was a hit or miss for me as it would either take 45-1hr or simply give up and crash.
Fast-forward to today when I finally decided to upgrade to AMD's latest offerings since Intel... well let's not state the obvious. Anyways, originally wanted to wait for the 16c but highest was 12c so just went with that. Either way compared to my quad, it's going to dramatically change my workflow experiences. I have yet to do any edit or render tests until all my software and setup is fully ready so I'll report back then.
- CPU: PBO + AutoOC
- Memory: XMP
- Cinebench R20: 7114
- CrystalDiskMark: 8351.3 read / 8266.6 write
- 1TB x2 running on Raid-0
- PCI GPU cooler with dual 120mm for now before I go push/pull setup on radiator with GPU waterblock. Was afraid cooling both CPU/GPU with my 240 wouldn't be as efficient as-is.
