Hi,, I work with Logic Pro X, Photoshop, **Premiere**, and After Effects.  My current computer (2009 iMac) is slow [edited by moderator] and I'm looking to make a serious upgrade (thinking iMac Pro) .. But it's still unclear to me what would be an ideal processor to choose, particularly in terms of "cores."  Some folks have said "the more cores the better".. while others (including an Apple representative) have said "no more than 2 cores are necessary" (which is particularly odd because my current decade-old iMac already has 4 cores)..  Anyways, any guidance would be much appreciated, thnx!

"no more than 2 cores are necessary"

That is terrible advice for a video computer.

Eight cores with hyperthreading and 64 GB RAM is a sweet setup.

Six cores with hyperthreading and 32 GB RAM may work for you depending upon the media.

Processor speed, however, is more important and should be as close to 4 GHz as possible.

What type of media will you be editing and what effects will you be using?
