Recommended Systems for Adobe After Effects


Not only is this system slightly faster than our "General" workstation for After Effects, it also allows for up to 256GB of RAM which greatly increases the number of frames that can be stored in RAM Preview. This lessens the chance that Ae will have to re-render frames that haven't changed, which can greatly increase overall productivity.

Note that this platform does not currently support Thunderbolt. However, 10G networking and a Blackmagic Deckink video monitoring card are available options.

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 sales consultants if you require assistance or a hardware configuration that is not covered by our recommended systems.

Windows 11 Ready!
