Video editing PCs differ from home computers as they need to be exceptionally powerful and designed to fit the task at hand. This PC is specifically designed for an enthusiast user who likes to edit footage for home, private or business use and is our ‘Level 2′ system.
Our computer starts with a great core in the form of the latest “Kaby Lake” Intel Core i7 7700K Quad Core processor running at 4.2GHz. Featuring Hyper Boost and HyperThreading technologies, this CPU allows the computer to run faster when needed and perform more computations at once – which massively benefits tasks in video editing and encoding. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 features Nvidia CUDA technology, allowing some applications (such as Adobe Premiere Pro) to enable advanced features and dramatically enhanced performance over using the CPU alone*.
We include in this machine as standard a high-end Samsung 256GB M.2 SSD, which has read speeds of over 3,500MB/s and allows Windows and applications to boot and load so much quicker. For video editing, this also can help speed up your editing workflow – particularly for projects with mutliple 1080p and 4k streams. We can also upgrade your machine with a secondary SSD, which can be used as a Scratch Disk by applications such as Adobe Premiere Pro if you require it. A fast 2TB hard drive is included as well for storing media files – which can store around 90 hours of 4k video!** The machine includes a DVD Writer as standard, which can be upgraded to a full Blu-ray writer if you require the ability to burn Blu-ray disks (£50).
The components we have chosen are specifically designed to keep temperatures to a minium whilst keeping noise as low as possible. The high quality low noise cooling on the CPU and Power Supply is further complimented by the compact Fractal Design Define R4 chassis, which has noise dampening materials on the side and front panels to abate as much noise as possible. The chassis, despite it’s small stature, still supports up to 6 hard drives and 2 optical drives. The six USB 3.0 ports can also be used for fast storage and backup.
When video-editing, we appreciate that different graphics cards will be more effective in different applications. We do have a wide range of Nvidia Quadro workstation cards available as well. We are also able to source changes to the other components in this machine, as well as features such as high end sound cards.
