i5 or i7 for video editing?
on Jul 8, 2017 at 12:46:12 am

I am considering buying a imac, and wanted to know if there is a significant need to upgrade to the i7 for video editing.
I don't do 4k editing currently but may in the near future. Or is the i7 only really necessary if producing graphics/grading in resolve?

There is some discussion of this in the FCPX debate forum titled https://forums.creativecow.net/thread/335/96047 New iMac for 4k editing. I posted that question a couple of weeks ago.

After reading the discussions I decided to go I7, although I haven't pulled the trigger yet. Mac last much longer now that Moore's Law is dead, so I figure the i7 might be more future proof and it is now or never. But there were a variety of opinions for sure.
