Hi Guys :)
I'm looking to build a 4k workstation that would allow me to do real-time editing and grading with Red Raw 4k footages. As for the compositing and vfx, I'm well aware that real-time lecture depends on the numbers of layers and effects you use. But the priority is the real-time editing. From what I read - and I read a lot! - I'd need at least 32gb ram and high access/speed disks, meaning SSD (probably a 4 disks raid volume 4x1TB). The tricky thing for me is the choice of the processor. I'd say the 5930k is a good choice because of the 6 cores, but I don't know which is the most important thing between raw power vs the number of cores when it comes to video editing and treatment. Would the i7 6700k be a valuable option? And, just for my knowledge, are the AMD processors really not fit for these kind of tasks? I'd like to add that this workstation will be running on linux (probably ubuntu studio or suse). My budget would ideally be arround 1500 £, but feel free to raise it if you're feeling that my budget doesn't meet my needs.
Thank you very much for your help!
