    New imac for editing 4k
    #1
    Default
    Hi Everyone,

    I've been looking at the new iMacs for adobe premiere pro editing. I want to be able to edit 4K. I want to spend $2000, which would get me the computer below... Do you think it will handle 4K or do I need to spend more money? See option 2.

    OPTION 1:
    Retina 5K Display
    3.1GHz 6-Core Processor with Turbo Boost up to 4.3GHz
    1TB Storage
    3.1GHz 6-core 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor
    Turbo Boost up to 4.3GHz
    8GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory, configurable up to 64GB
    1TB Fusion Drive1
    Radeon Pro 575X with 4GB of GDDR5 memory
    Two Thunderbolt 3 ports
    Retina 5K 5120-by-2880 P3 display

    PRICE: $1999.

    Note: I would install 32GB of RAM later ($219 OWC Memory for 32GB).

    OPTION 2:

    Same as above, but would add this for $500 more:

    3.6GHz 8-core 9th-generation Intel Core i9 processor, Turbo Boost up to 5.0GHz

    PRICE: $2,499.

    Note: I would install 32GB of RAM later ($219 OWC Memory for 32GB).

    Thanks! Just looking for the least expensive solution that can handle my 4K needs.

    I am guessing a lot of people are not using the new imacs for editing yet. Spec wise, do you guys think the cheaper system can handle 4k?

    That first one should work just fine for you.

    I haven't seen any tests yet, but there is some concern that the cooling system built into the new iMacs may not be able to handle the full heat output of the i9 CPU, so the computer may throttle the i9 CPU performance when under load. ( in other words, the i9 CPU may not be much better than the i7 CPU when it comes to processing a heavy rendering load )
