None of them beachball, but it depends on the format - RED or ProRes or FS7, etc. The absolute worst is 4K GoPro or DJI footage. Generally with ProRes, what I see is stuttery playback, but it depends on the app. A lot has to do with the media drives you are using. On this machine for effective 4K, you want something like an 8-drive SAS array, like the old MaxxDigital units. Or better. You'll note that a number of the big films using Premiere were using all-SSD drive arrays, like those from Open Drives. But, if I were doing something like a feature film on this machine with all 4K ProRes or RED sources, I would definitely proxy it for the creative cut and do the 4K relink and finish in Resolve.
