Premiere Pro 4K+ Main Picture

If you export to 4K or higher resolutions, this system with dual CPUs is perfect for you. Due to how Premiere behaves with multiple physical CPUs, there is actually only a single CPU model that makes sense for Premiere (the Xeon E5-2643 v3). Lower end options will actually be slower than our 1080p system and higher end options will not actually provide any performance improvement.

Depending on the type of media you work with (1080p H.264, RED 4K/6K/8K, Prores, etc.), this system is capable of up to 512GB of RAM for the situations where high RAM capacity is necessary. This can also be useful if you also work with After Effects or you want to run multiple high-demand applications at once. Both NVIDIA GeForce video cards and Quadro cards are also supported.

If your workflow also includes using After Effects, we do want to point out that for the latest version of AE (2015, 13.5) this may not be the best system for you as that version does not work well with dual CPU systems. Previous versions of AE (and hopefully future versions as well), however, work extremely well with dual CPUs. For more information, we recommend reading our Adobe After Effects CC 2015 Multi Core Performance article.

This system is based on our Genesis II certified system only with the non-relevant components removed and includes all of the features that come with that system including free 1-year Next Business Day Onsite Service + 24hr Help Desk.

If you are not sure which hardware choice is right for you we recommend reading through the Recommended Hardware section. And as always, don't hesitate to contact one of our technology consultants if you require assistance or a hardware configuration that is not covered by our recommended systems.
