Which PC upgrade will give me the biggest improvement in render times Premiere CC?
on Sep 1, 2017 at 5:43:44 pm

My current PC setup is:
i7 5930k
gigabyte mobo GA-z68x-ud3h-b3 LGA 1155
Windows 7 ultimate
Graid 4tb - raid 0 (hold media being edited)
Nvidia GTX 760
Premiere Pro CC 10.3.0
32gb RAM (4 x 8gb corsair sticks)

I'm looking for a way to speed up render times in premiere pro. I use pretty heavy effects for music videos and the final renders either just take too long or crash and I have to start over. (I assume this upgrade will also improve playback speed, but not sure, regardless, render time is the priority) In an ideal world I would make all these upgrades, but I'm not rich. I'm looking to get the best bang for buck on an upgrade, but unsure which upgrade will give me the most boost for a faster render time. I assume this is dependent on how Premiere Pro uses the computer's resources, but I don't know which resource has the biggest impact. Should I:

1. Add 2 sticks of 16gb DDR4 RAM to my existing setup which would bring my total RAM up to 64gb?
2. Upgrade my graphics card to something like nvidia 1080 ti?
3. Upgrade CPU to something stronger
4. Swap out my graid 4tb hdd (read/write speed 327 mb/s) for a 1TB samsung SSD (read/write speed 520mb/s)

I'd suggest 2&3. 1&4 won't have much effect on renders.

I've seen enough research that says your PC uses, at most, 8-12 gigs of RAM when rendering. Adding RAM won't do anything, and in some cases actually slows down renders! Go figure that one out!

Greg Janza gave you excellent advice, although I've also read that the GPU doesn't come into play when rendering, but I could be, and probably am, wrong. A more powerful CPU might help but we could be talking a few seconds considering what you already have.

[greg janza] "I'd suggest 2&3. 1&4 won't have much effect on renders."

My understanding is that while the GFX card influences "real time" play of the timeline it has little or no effect on final export render times. The main hardware influence for exporting is the CPU and the most important consideration there is clock speed, not number of cores.

So you're saying I'm right, for once? ;-)

According to NVIDIA, export rendering is greatly increased with their cards, in one example a 3 hr render improved to 3 mins.
