AMD and Intel have both added new CPUs to their existing product lines. AMD launched the Ryzen 3600XT/3800XT/3900XT and Intel launched the core i9 10850K. There are only minor differences in these new CPUs, but what impact does that have on 3ds Max?
Ryzen XT and i9 10850K for Adobe CC: Are They Worth It?
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?
Premiere Pro CPU performance: Intel Core 10th Gen vs AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen
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?
After Effects CPU performance: Intel Core 10th Gen vs AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen
Intel processors have long been our recommendation for After Effects workstations, although AMD’s Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs closed the gap to the point that there was little benefit to using one brand over the other. With the launch of the new Intel 10th Gen desktop processors, however, Intel has the chance to regain the lead for After Effects.
Lightroom Classic CPU performance: Intel Core 10th Gen vs AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen
Lightroom Classic has a number of interesting performance quirks – chief among them the fact that AMD processors are overwhelming faster than Intel processors for a number of tasks like exporting and generating smart previews. Will this hold true for the new Intel 10th Gen processors, or will we see Intel take over as our go-to recommendation for Lightroom Classic?
Photoshop CPU performance: Intel Core 10th Gen vs AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen
When AMD released their Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs in 2019, they very slightly out-performed Intel’s 9th Gen processors. Intel’s new 10th Gen lineup should allow them to take back the Photoshop performance crown, but will it be by a noticeable amount, or just a few percent?
Premiere Pro performance: PC Workstation vs Mac Pro (2019)
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?
After Effects performance: PC Workstation vs Mac Pro (2019)
Adobe After Effects can easily bring even the most powerful workstation to its knees, but how does Apple’s new Mac Pro compare to a much more affordable PC workstation?
Photoshop performance: PC Workstation vs Mac Pro (2019)
Apple’s new Mac Pro is a very slick and sturdy machine, but does its high price translate to better performance in Photoshop?
Premiere Pro CC 2019 CPU Roundup: Intel vs AMD vs Mac
In addition to being one of the more important choice, getting the right CPU is also one of the more complicated decisions when configuring a Premiere Pro workstation. Unlike applications like Photoshop and After Effects where there is a relatively clear “best” CPU, in Premiere Pro there are reasons to use a wide range of processors depending on your budget and what you are doing. But which should you use in your system?
