Since a few days ago, my Premiere Pro 2020's playback has been super laggy. I have a beast of a PC and I've not really had this issue until now.
Basically, the video constantly stutters / buffers when clicking play. I've tried so many things to try fix it. Different quality options, different media files, different sequence settings, swapping between CPU and GPU rendering, uninstall premiere pro, deleting all premiere pro files, changing harddrives.
I just don't know what to do anymore. Anyone else having issues since the last update or know any fixes?
forgive the snark, but the caffeine hasn't kicked in yet this morning. You're saying you have a beast of a pc and the reality of your system are not necessarily the same thing. If we're going to be able to diagnose the problem, we need specifics and answered in a systematic fashion...
Please tell us your system specs: OS version, Premiere version, amount of RAM, Hardware specs including graphics card and your source properties and your sequence settings. If your system was working before the latest update, I'd suggest you revert to the previous version. Premiere allows you to have multiple versions on your system.
Also, hardware can fail. All hard drives (including SSD's) will eventually fail. It's a question of when not if. You also need to make sure you have sufficient free space on your drives. My understanding is 20% on your boot drive and 10% on your media drives... and the more data you have on your drives, the slower they will work... and people report issues with the audio hardware setting. Try changing the input to none...
I appreciate your response. First off, I didn't list my PC specs initially because I didn't think it would be necessary as my specs shouldn't be an issue considering it was fine before the update. Either way, here are my specs:

CPU: Intel Core i9 9900K
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master
Ram: G.SKILL TridentZ DDR4 3200mhz (4x8GB)
NVME: Samsung 970 Pro 512GB (The drive Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Premiere Pro 2020 are installed on)
SSD: Samsung 860 Evo 1TB (The drive I am editing off of)
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda Pro 4TB x 2
Microsoft Windows 10 Home version: 10.0.18363 Build 18363
