Hello,

I have a fairly good PC (Ryzen 7 3700x, 32GB 3200 Mhz RAM, GTX1070, three diferent SSDs for windows, footage and scratch files... 

I usually edit gopro 2k footage with this rig with no problem without the need to use proxys, well recently did a trip with a friend of mine who has a Sony A7s III and he gave me some of his 4k 120 fps footage... wich i know is a lot more data to deal than my usual gopro workload, but i thought that my pc could handle it... welll im struggling here to get workable playback, even using proxys and setting the playback quality to 1/4... Any ideas what's the reason for this?? Is just my PC not good enough??

Some of the the new camera codes are hard to playback. You can run the Windows task manager to see the bottle neck. You have an AMD CPU. I dont know if Intel's Quick Sync or the GPU can decode the A7S III files or not. The video might be worth watching.
