Puget Systems bid options

Just got a proposal from Puget Systems ... I work mostly in Premiere, with some Ae/Audition and some Resolve also.

 

How's this sound? My area of concern is the AMD CPU, for H.264/5 accel, but ... I don't actually 'need' that media that much, I do work BRAW, RED, and ProRes, Cineform or DNxHD/R more.

Great starting point there. Intel does not currently have anything that's priced anywhere near that Threadripper's price point that's competitive in both core count and performance. And the top-end HEDT Intel CPU is all but unobtainable at this point (not to mention that it's significantly less powerful than the Threadripper).

Your comments are appreciated, most definitely.

 

Going from a 6 core 3.2Ghz to that 24 core Threadripper would be a bit of a change ... in a very good way.

 

There is one other question ... in case say I was doing more Resolve work (not expected but possible) ... doubling the GPU would be useful. For that possibility, it would mean a large case & power supply, and using a 'blown' GPU instead of the free-air version currently included. Hmmm.

Actually, "open air" is a misnomer. All RTX 2080S's that I know of, except for the few liquid-cooled models, have an active cooler (heatsink plus fan). Hardly any RTX 2080S's that I know of have a traditional blower-style fan any more.

 

"Free-air" GPUs actually have a fan that blows the hot air from the GPU back into the PC's case. It is then up to the case's cooling system to pump that air out of it.

Probably going with the 2080Ti 11GB instead. Want the higher vRAM.
