Hi
I just downloaded Adobe Premiere Pro and got the following message:

System Compatibility Report 

Video Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 

Unsupported Video Driver 

 

"If you continue with known issues, you may experience performance degradation, instability and data loss." 

 

My Specs: 

Edition: Windows 10 Home (vers. 1909)

Processor: Intel Core i5-4590 CPU 3.30 GHz

Installed RAM: 16.00 GB

System Type: 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor 

 

Unfortunately I've tried updating my graphics card and it didn't solve the issue.

Would getting an External Graphics Card solve this problem or will I need a new PC?

 

Any help is much appreciated!

>tried updating my graphics card

Are you talking about removing & replacing the CARD, or the card's driver?

Do you have a laptop or a desktop computer where you can replace the card?

Thanks for your response. I was talking about buying an external graphics card. I have a desktop pc.

Can I replace the card or is my PC just too old? Also do you know the earliest intel version that is supported by premier pro. Is it i6 or above?

Thanks

If by "external graphics card" you mean a truly external (outside-the-box-connection), then there is virtually nothing that's compatible with your particular system. But if you mean an add-in card that goes completely inside of the PC case, then your CPU will seriously limit the performance of the higher-end cards.

 

In other words, you're trapped in between a rock and a hard place. Either get a new GPU and hope for the best, or spend a lot of money for a new PC whose GPU is well matched (relative-performance-wise) to its CPU (which will almost always be significantly more powerful than your current CPU).

Yes I was refering to an external graphics card attached to my desktop PC. Something like thunderbolt but hopefully cheaper. It looks like I may need to buy a new PC. Any idea of the minimum I would need to spend and would you recommend buying a more powerful graphics card on top of the cost of a pc?

Thanks

To balance your CPU performance you'd need something like GTX 1050 (used, <70$), or new 1650/1650 super. Latter is actually overkill for your current system, but is more future-proof. Investing in a new PC make sense if you getting serious about video editing, but if it's a one time or very rare occasion, probably not

So you recommend an internal graphics card rather than an external one like thunderbold but cheaper? Its hard to know if i'm even asking the right questions becuase i'm not too familiar with hardware.

Without being there to take the side panel off and look inside your computer case, I will GUESS that you don't actually have a card at all, you have an Intel chip that is part of the motherboard

 

So you MIGHT be able to buy a card as suggested and then disable the Intel chip in BIOS to only use the card you buy

 

If you are not familiar with opening the computer case and adding a card there are either online videos or have someone with more experience help... and do be aware that at least SOME cards not only plug into the motherboard, they need to have a separate power connector from the power supply to run the cooling fan(s)

No, it's just a little better vs what you already have, except graphic card. And 8GB RAM is too low for novadays

I can upgrade the memory easily to 16 gb. I'm just surpised even this PC isn't good enough as it's meant for gaming and contains a significantly superior graphic card. What would you recommend?

It depends. It's good enough for 1080p (not RAW) material, even for small 4k projects (likely via proxy).

Except that power connector is needed for card in general, not just for its cooling fan. And, btw, integrated GPU in a PC often means that power supply inside is very basic. Means any mighty enough GPU may cause power overloading.

Thanks, I'll give that a read although the technical jargon can be difficult to understand  How much roughly would I need to spend altogether?
