With the RTX 4070 Ti joining the RTX 4080 and 4090, NVIDIA has now completed the launch of the initial trio of their GeForce RTX 40 series of GPUs. How do these cards compare for various content creation workflows versus the previous generation RTX cards, and their competition from AMD?
With the RTX 4070 Ti joining the RTX 4080 and 4090, NVIDIA has now completed the launch of the initial trio of their GeForce RTX 40 series of GPUs. How do these cards compare in Premiere Pro versus the previous generation RTX cards, and their competition from AMD?
Intel’s 3 NUC 13 Extreme is a highly compact PC that is still capable of hosting high-end hardware like an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080, 64GB of RAM, and multiple M.2 NVMe storage drives. The question is, do you sacrifice any performance with thee ultra-compact NUC 13?
Following the success of the initial launch of their 13th Gen processors, Intel is now launching the Core i9 13900KS which is the first CPU to be capable of hitting 6 GHz at stock settings. But will this make any real difference for content creation?
Premiere Pro supports hardware-based decoding for H.264 and H.265 (HEVC) which can significantly improve performance with these codecs, but not all “flavors” of these codecs are supported depending on the bit depth and chroma subsampling used. In addition, support can change depending on the capability of the hardware in your system. In order to determine exactly what is supported, we decided to do our own testing to see exactly what types of H.264/5 media has hardware decoding support in Premiere Pro.
AMD has launched their new Radeon 7000 series of GPUs, including the 7900 XTX. NVIDIA has long had a lead for many content creation workflows, however. Is the new 7900 XTX fast enough to make AMD a viable alternative to NVIDIA?
In the Premiere Pro 23.1 update, Adobe added GPU debayering for ARRIRAW which can significantly improve performance for live playback and exporting.
Modern content creation workstations are incredibly powerful, but just how much faster is a system today versus one 2, 4, 6, or even 7 years ago?
NVIDIA is continuing their new RTX 40 Series GPUs with the new RTX 4080 16GB. How does this new card perform in the real world, and is it worth considering in your next content creation workstation?
Intel’s 13th Gen processors bring terrific performance across the board, but many modern processors have been criticized for their high power draw and heat output. However, we have found that most CPUs only operate at these high temperatures when the motherboard BIOS is allowed to automatically overclock the processor above the official Intel specifications. Does running them at reference speeds impact performance, and how much of a difference does it make for thermals?
