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.

No. They make condoms to stop reproduction at a couple of quid, why would i spend £20 on a hoodie for the same effect ?! Cool vids though bro lol

You guys should start using ffmpeg, maybe with prores_amcdx....

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.

try cooing the cpu not with water or some cooling fluid try cooling with alcohol e.g. vodka or ipa for that matter

why not use a epyc, or TR chipset that is more geared for multicore performance? and upgrade to like nvme or just anything from this decade?

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)

ChannelLocks Son!! (Tongue and Groove Pliers for the brand name haters.) Get two 10 in. and two 6 in. sets. (25.4 cm and 15.24 cm) (345 Tic-Tacs and 183 Tic-Tacs) Note: Tic-Tac measurement may be off by +/- 1000 Tic-Tacs The joy they will bring will bring you joy for years to come!

While I can appreciate some of why y'all use Adobe, you've forgotten the basic principle that premiere is trash and Davinci Resolve is vastly superior.

this is a render server, so the editors are able to send the Adobe file to the server and make it render without slowing down the editing pc? Is that how this works

If the faster RAM is making such a difference, wouldn't a Ryzen system with much faster RAM be even better?

TBH, i'd have taken a new ryzen or a epyc for that type of workload.

if you use 264 coddecs the gpu can help a lot on it... also... but youre using codecs that need brute force from cpus.. in this cases is better an amd processor that dont use so many shortcuts...
Melancia Acrobatica
DONT OVERCLOCK this much- it only works for fast test benchmark NOT FOR REAL WORK ! LOL WTF this guys...
Jonathan Marshall
Wouldn't this be a perfect workload for a 2990wx? He tried 3 intel CPU's and didn't see THAT much of an improvement. For the price of that 9990XE he could do an 24c/32c EPYC build.
