Premiere Pro Workstation
CPU / PROCESSOR
Adobe’s Premiere Pro & After Effects Mercury Playback Engine can make use of both the CPU and GPU to process visual effects including warp stabilization, color space conversions, blending, etc. Along with exporting, file encoding/decoding, rendering previews, Premiere Pro is a highly multi-threaded program, meaning it can make use of many CPU cores to significantly speed up many processes. Some tasks including 2D animation and general video editing may be single-threaded, meaning they will make use of a few cores at a time at their max operating frequency (value given in GHz). A strong video production CPU would be the Intel Core i7 10700k 8 core 5.1 GHz CPU found on the Orbital Silenced C2000. For Premiere Pro power users, we would strongly recommend the Orbital C3000 Pro with an Intel Core i9 CPU with up to 18 cores, 36 threads at 4.8 GHz. With Premiere Pro, adding more cores and a higher operating frequency will usually keep increasing performance for its many multi-threaded tasks.
MEMORY / RAM
Premiere Pro RAM recommendations: 32GB for 1080p workloads, 64GB for 4k, 128GB for 6k, and 256GB for 8k. All Orbital Computers Workstations are designed to be user expandable with non-proprietary memory modules; that way you can start with a lower RAM capacity to keep costs down and upgrade as needed in the future. All RAM used by Orbital comes with a manufacturer’s lifetime warranty on parts.
For most professional users, the Orbital C3000 Pro with an i9 and high-end RTX GPU is the recommended video editing workstation for Premiere Pro. If your goal is to minimize rendering time, the Orbital C5000 Pro with dual Xeon CPUs may be the best video editing workstation for the increased multi-threaded performance, but be sure to contact us before ordering so we can double check recommendations are fully up to date.
Choosing the right video card for Premiere Pro is critical to maximizing performance. The Mercury Playback Engine can make use of CUDA processing to dramatically improve encoding, rendering, and effects tasks. We recommend the Nvidia GeForce RTX line of video cards for Premiere Pro as they offer massive amounts of video-RAM and CUDA cores and can be scaled up as needed in the future to further increase your Orbital Computers Workstation’s performance. The Nvidia RTX 2070 Super is a strong option for many video production workloads. For serious power users, the Nvidia RTX 3000 Series are the top of the line options.
For most Premiere Pro workflows, we recommend at least 2 solid state drives – one for your operating system and programs and another for use as a media cache/scratch disk and a large traditional hard drive for long term video file storage. Orbital Computers offers the fastest NVMe PCI-e solid state drives with individual read speeds over 3,500 MBps to provide major performance boosts with tasks like timeline scrubbing, file transfer, saving/loading, and much more.
