I mostly use Premiere Pro, After Effects and Photoshop so this query is pertaining to those.
So I was using a razer blade 15 last year with 1060 Max-Q GPU and 8GB RAM and it was doing well for the most part until it started crashing. It was getting in the way of my work so I decided to get a new laptop.
However, even with better specs and cooling, my programs run much slower.
The 2021 adobe update has, needless to say, made things much slower, but even before the update, my softwares were running much slower compared to my Razer. I'm not sure I understand what the problem is.
Some examples of when the system slows down :
If I stack a few layers on Premiere Pro (even 3 - 4) layers, there's a lot of stuttering during playback.
If I add an adjustment layer with noise or colour adjustments, it's very slow during playback.
Even on 1/4 resolution, I still experience this problem.
For After Effects, basic text animations take forever to execute and I have to let it stutter through the timeline multiple times before I can get a simple playback. You can imagine how much slower things get as I add on more effects or transitions.
If anyone could give me any insight into this, I would be very grateful. It's really slowing my work down and I don't have the money to buy another system right now. If there are any tips on how I can optimize my workflow for better performance, that would be great too.
