Could always go full compensator and get the new Threadripper. 

 

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 7960X 350W SP6 - 24-Core/48-Threads - 100-100001352WOF - Newegg.com

 

More cores, more memory controllers. Put all 4 of those DIMMs to good use.

 

Excluding the motherboard, the price is about double for double-ish, probably wouldn't be a hard sell to management given the platform.

Hey guys,

 

I wanted to get your input on the build I have planned out for my company's main video workstation. If you notice any strange shortcomings/problems in the pcpartpicker list, please do me a favor and provide some feedback.

 

I have a few questions in mind:

- Does Adobe Premiere Pro (my main editing suite atm) still prefer higher clock speed over more CPU cores?

- Should I opt for DDR5-6000 (192GB) or DDR5-8000 (96GB) options?

- I need max transfer speeds for the usb ports at the front of the case. Do you have any case recommendations?

 

I am no specialist when it comes to PC Builds, although I know some bits here and there.

 

Really appreciate your guys' input :-)

 

1. Budget & Location

I am from germany and planning to buy from mindfactory, since it's a german company as well. I am open for buying suggestions tho.

 

2. Aim

Heavy Video editing workflows (8k R3D files, 8k ProRes 422 files, stereoscopic editing, 360 stitching, Colour Grading and editing in Premiere Pro, After Effects, Davinci Resolve and occasional Mocha Pro tracking, h265 decoding)

3D-animation in Blender and (occasionally) SideFX Houdini

 

3. Monitors

Currently 2 monitors @4k60 each. Not planning to have higher Hertz numbers, since color accuracy is important for me. Might add a third display @4k60 

 

4. Peripherals

Im good for peripherals atm.

 

5. Why are you upgrading?

Really hitting rock bottom with my 64GB Ram RTX2060 AMD Ryzen 9 3950x rn. Premiere pro can't play back at full res without stutter etc.

 

Budget (including currency): 

Since it's a business spending, I'm pretty chill there. Shouldnt be above 6000€ tho.

 

Country:

Germany

 

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 

See AIM section

 

PCPartPicker List I thought was good:

Really helpful. Will most definitely look into that. Saw Linus' video about it, too.

I'd probalby avoid TR here as the 24 core is slower in premiere according to the puget system articles, and I don't see the point in paying a lot more for less or tabout the same performance.

Not saying the 14900k is a bad option here, definitely a good value for performance.

 

Another suggestion would be going with a W680 motherboard and potentially ECC memory, if it would be beneficial. Intel gatekeeps ECC behind their workstation chipsets like the W680.

 

ASUS Pro WS W680-ACE IPMI LGA 1700 ATX PRO WS W680-ACE IPMI B&H (bhphotovideo.com)

Just an example from a US retailer.

 

Really strange thing I just noticed, the KF SKU Intel CPUs don't support ECC?

The Puget tests are definitely what I needed. Thanks a lot man.
