Standard Configuration for Adobe After Effects


Intel's Core 12th Gen processors offer fantastic performance in After Effects, both for lightly threaded parts of the workload and when using the new Multi-Frame Rendering (MFR) feature. However, this platform is limited to 128GB of memory and currently does not support Thunderbolt - so if you need more RAM or TB connectivity, take a look at our other AE workstation options.

While this platform does not currently support Thunderbolt, it does have limited expansion room for 10G networking or a Blackmagic DeckLink video monitoring card as 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!
