Optane memory question, does it count?

Thinking about maybe getting Premiere Elements 2020 but only if my laptop can manage it.  Here are some details: 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-8265U processor, Quad-core, 8 GB DDR4 ram + 16 GB Intel optane memory.  I know an i7 is preferred, with 16 DDR4, but my question is, will I be sorry I tried using Premiere on what I already have?  I know better than to expect I'd get blazing rendering speeds.  Anyone else tried it on an i5 with 8 ram (plus optane memory)?

It should work fairly well with "ordinary" HD MP4 files using the common H.264 codec.   AVCHD, 4K and H.265 files are more work for the CPU and may slow it down a little.  Yours is one of the faster i5 CPUs.

 

One of the main reasons that there are free trials is so you won't be disappointed.  If you buy direct from Adobe, there is also a refund period.  (I think it is two weeks, but not sure.)

 

Please enjoy a full trial before you spend your money.  I think there is a "black Friday sale" going on for a few days at a 40% discount.  It will only go on sale once or twice a year.

Thanks very much whsprague.  It's encouraging to hear that from an Adobe Professional.  I'll give it a go.
