Adobe Premiere Pro can make use of multiple CPU cores, but the efficiency greatly drops after a certain point. For most users, we would recommend opting for the fastest CPU available that still has a decent core count.
Not all user workflows are the same though, so be sure and contact us for an optimized configuration.
The amount of memory you will need depends on how many programs you will have open at any given time alongside Premiere Pro and the resolution of the video files that you will be working with.
A good starting point in deciding how much RAM you should go for would be to check your current usage via Windows Task Manager.
Your graphics card can make a big difference for Premiere Pro. A mid-range card will be suitable for 1080p editing, but you’ll want something with more VRAM for editing at higher resolutions.
Exporting to H.264 also requires more GPU power.
While Premiere Pro does support multiple GPUs, this feature does not improve performance over a single card by much.
Adobe does not require a workstation grade GPU (Nvidia Quadro or AMD Radeon Pro), and we would recommend a Nvidia GeForce card for the greatest value.
In the past, computers were held back by slow mechanical hard drives. Unless you are storing files which are not accessed too often, in which case mechanical hard drives might be a better choice, Solid State drives should be used for everything else. Having everything stored on SSDs means you’ll be able to copy, move, open and save files quickly and PC and program start times will be reduced.
