Intel has launched their new 12th Gen Intel Core desktop processors (code-named “Alder Lake”) with support for DDR5, PCIe 5.0, as well as a completely new hybrid architecture featuring a mix of Performance and Efficient-cores. This is a lot of new technologies in one product, so we are excited to see how much of a performance boost the 12th Gen CPUs will see in Adobe Premiere Pro.
Windows 11 is finally here, although many popular editing applications like Premiere Pro and After Effects do not yet have full official support. But, is there a reason to go ahead and upgrade to Windows 11 for video editing even before full support is added?
Intel’s new Xeon W-3330 series of workstation CPUs are here, ranging from 12 to 38 cores, and touting up to 18% IPC improvements. But are these features worth the higher cost of the Xeon platform, and how do they fare against AMD’s Threadripper Pro line in Adobe Premiere Pro?
Earlier this month, Intel announced the initial launch of their new 11th Gen Intel Core desktop processors (code-named “Rocket Lake”). These new processors are marketed as having substantially better per-core performance compared to their previous 10th Gen Core models, but will that be enough for Intel to overtake AMD in Premiere Pro?
AMD’s new Threadripper Pro CPUs are here, combining many of the features from their Threadripper and EPYC CPU lines including increased memory and PCI-E capability. But are these extra features useful for Premiere Pro, or should you stick with the normal Threadripper processors?
Apple has recently launched MacBook Air and Pro models using the new Apple M1 chip based on the Arm instruction set. While we do not usually examine performance for laptops, we wanted to see how these new chips compare to a desktop PC.
Until recently, Intel enjoyed the benefit of being the only CPUs that could be used for hardware accelerated encoding/decoding of H.264 and HEVC media with their Quick Sync feature. However, with Premiere Pro 14.5 including GPU-based hardware encoding/decoding, the playing field has been leveled, allowing AMD to truly show what they are capable of. Will the new AMD Ryzen 5000 Series out-perform the Intel options, or will Intel maintain a lead even without the benefit of hardware encoding/decoding?
Both AMD and Intel have recently released a number of minor updates to their CPUs with AMD launching the Ryzen 3600XT, 3800XT, and 3900XT while Intel has launched the Core i9 10850K. These new models are only slightly different than others that are already on the market, but do they provide any performance benefit?
When AMD released their Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs in 2019, they were able to match (or beat) Intel at most price points. Will Intel’s new 10th Gen lineup allow them to take back the Premiere Pro performance crown?
Adobe Premiere Pro is generally pretty decent at leveraging both the CPU and GPU in your system, but even with a 28 Core CPU and Radeon Pro Vega GPUs, is the new 2019 Mac Pro able to keep up with a significantly more affordable PC workstation?
