Unreal Engine: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPU Performance

Posted in Articles on 11/05/2020 by Kelly Shipman

Unreal Engine has grown by leaps and bound over the years, with more and more industries developing new workflows in it. AMD has released their new Ryzen 5000 Series, so we'll see if they can improve those workflows and how they stack up to competing CPUs from Intel.


Adobe Premiere Pro: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPU Performance

Posted in Articles on 11/05/2020 by Matt Bach

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?

Adobe After Effects: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPU Performance

Posted in Articles on 11/05/2020 by Matt Bach

Ever since AMD launched their Ryzen 3000 Series processors last year, AMD and Intel have had almost identical performance in After Effects. With the new Ryzen 5000 Series, however, AMD is advertising major performance improvements that should allow them to take a solid performance lead over Intel.


DaVinci Resolve Studio: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPU Performance

Posted in Articles on 11/05/2020 by Matt Bach

Ever since the launch of their 3rd generation Ryzen and Threadripper processors, AMD processors have been a strong choice for DaVinci Resolve Studio. Not only is Resolve able to utilize a decent number of CPU cores, but because of how heavily it leverages the GPU, having a platform with PCI-E 4.0 can make a measurable impact on performance. However, AMD's Ryzen 5000 Series processors are here, touting major increases in performance in per-core performance which should allow AMD to take a solid lead over Intel in DaVinci Resolve.
