    • You have mountains of hardware and instead of doing a comparison in a separate test machine you rip out the server, change the hardware and only then do you do a comparison? Linus you're a retard.

    Sandros94Sandros94Vor Tag
  • Would love to see you guys run some tests with Resolve using your workflow. I think it would do a much better job taking advantage of this hardware. Adobe needs to focus on optimising it's software vs adding useless features and pushing updates that crash your system.

  • I have very little expertise with adobe premier, but wouldn't the encoding software itself play a huge role in this? Using ffmpeg, preset veryfast on a crf value of 18 on libx264, i did a 4K30p reencode of video game capture in Blackmagic RAW format of 30 minutes, and it took me around 40-45 minutes to complete and it gave me an average bitrate of 65-70Mbit/s (on a Ryzen 5 2600x clocked at 4GHz)

    • i had 5820k and veneance lpx 4x4gb 2666. i could never launch it with 2666 only 2400. once i did it with 125 bclk and got 2750 but the cpu voltage was 1.9v so i ruined it with a mobo. this very ram works now on 3466mhz paired with 2200g ryzen.
