Processor/Video card question

Hello, can an Intel Xeon 15620 @2.4 GHz and an NVIDIA Quadro 600 run the latest version of Premiere Pro, working with 720 or 1080p? The machine has 16gb RAM. I won't be doing anything hardcore, mainly small 2-5 minute sequences with a Dslr and external audio.Thank you!

I think you meant the Xeon E5620? That system can't really do well in the latest version of Premiere Pro at all, and that awful Quadro 600 (which is, if anything, just an underclocked GeForce GT 430 from 2010) will suffocate the already weakling CPU even more. This is because a severely underpowered GPU will actually prevent the CPU from coming anywhere close to fully loaded, causing the CPU to almost always remain at or near its idle (fail-safe) clock speed (of 1.6 GHz in the case of the first-gen Nehalem/Westmere architecture CPUs) even if a heavy load is placed on the CPU.

The CPU is right at the edge of not handling realtime playback since normally you want atleast a 2.6GHz CPU or higher though turbo speed would also count for this. When you use a CPU under 2.6Ghz the processing latency starts to hinder realtime playback depending on the codec of media. The GPU can help offset a little of this but the Quadro 600 wont be much help. If you can convert the media to Cineform or DNx then that system will likely be fine. H264  or Mpeg 4 will depend on how you edit.

Eric,

I checked the specs of (what I presume is) a Xeon E5620, and discovered that its all-core turbo speed is a paltry 2.53 GHz. What's more, the E5620 is a die-shrink of the first-generation Nehalem CPU architecture, which means that it cannot perform as much work per clock cycle as later-generation Intel CPUs.

Either way transcoding the media to far lower compression media such as Cineform or DNx would be better and advisable for that system since that CPU will struggle with any higher compression media.
