4K Video Editing Rig (Adobe Premiere Pro)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I know this is long, but I want to make sure I have all this right, as it's an expensive build. I'm not sure if this is the right place on the forum, but I didn't see anything for video editing for specialty builds.

I'm doing a high end 4K video editing rig for someone, and was looking for some input, as I had a few questions. He originally received an invoice from a company, however I felt I could do better for the same or less cost. They had him with a 4K camcorder that shoots 8-bit, but had 10-bit displays and a Quadro M4000 for 10-bit display, which doesn't make sense to me. So I am opting for three 4K 8-bit sRGB LG monitors which are a few hundred less per monitor, and the new Titan Xp (or 1080Ti if I wanted to save a little) instead of the Quadro. To my knowledge, the Titan Xp, or even a GTX 1080 would outperform the Quadro M4000, which also only has 8GB VRAM. Only benefit of the Quadro is the 10-bit capability, as well as increased "driver support" - but I don't know if that's really worth it if you're just doing 8-bit.

Another question I had was to go with a 6950X or Dual Xeon E5-2620 v4, which is what the original invoice called for. From the articles I read on PugetSystems, they said the 6950X far outperforms the Dual Xeon in Premiere Pro, and that's why they don't even offer it in their builds. I understand a 6900K comes pretty close to the 6950X, for about $500-600 less, but again, this comes back to him preferring to spend more for more performance, even if it's not significant.

For Memory, how important is ECC RAM? I know what it does, and that it's usually used for servers. I suppose it could be beneficial if you are rendering a long and complex timeline that could take a full day to render, but I don't think any video he edits will exceed 2hrs. I am planning on going with 128GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-2400 Non-ECC RAM. I understand 64GB is minimum for 4K, so I am going to go beyond that, as I want to exceed all minimum requirements.

For storage, I am planning on using an 850 Pro for the boot drive, and two 512GB 960 Pro SSDs - one for Project & Source Media, and the other as a cache and scratch disk. For mass, long term storage, I plan on doing a RAID 6 Array with write-back caching. Also, will I need any extra small cache drive for the write-back cache? And will the onboard RAID controller be acceptable? I'm not sure if I need a dedicated controller to use write-back caching - I can't seem to get an answer online.

He has a high budget, and is willing to pay more for better hardware, even if the performance gain isn't much. I believe he will be using a Panasonic AG-UX180 4K Premium Professional Camcorder, unless he ends up ordering something different.

What are your thoughts on the build? Link below. Thank you in advance for your time.

You can cut his costs further by going with a RyZen 1800x system as it equals and even surpasses the 6950X in productivity.

This isn't really a build where we are trying to cut costs. We are aiming for the best performance for 4K H.264 in Premiere Pro. And I'm not sure where you are seeing that the 1800X equals and surpasses the 6950X. Maybe there are some applications, but in Premiere Pro, I have found that it does not. Please see the graphs below. The 1800X doesn't even surpass a 6900K, so it certainly won't surpass a 6950X.

But you said you're trying to cut costs in the first post (whether by providing more bang per buck or outright savings)?
Then you speak on the 1080ti if you want to save over the Titan Xp... just say you don't wanna use AMD.

Don't get my post wrong, they're other reasons to go with Intel on the build.

I did not say I was trying to cut costs. I said that he is willing to pay for better performance, even if it is not significant. Regarding the 1080Ti, I said "if I wanted to save". Never said I was trying to.

I have nothing against AMD. If the Ryzen 7 1800X performed better than the 6950X, I would get it. But sadly it does not.
