Get better performance inside Adobe Premiere Pro by changing settings and must-know tips. In this video we’ll share 5 software tips to speed up Premiere Pro, which you can instantly use and 1 bonus tips around computer hardware.

I believe we are all familiar with the frustration of a slow computer while working on an intensive project. While we often blame the computer itself, some performance issues could be easily resolved with a few settings in Adobe Premiere Pro or you operating system.

Of course, this only works up to a certain threshold. If you’re experiencing very slow performance, it might be a better idea to invest in a new computer. Last week we made a video on how to build your own video editing computer. In that video we’ve learned that the processor is the most important component of your system.

Like mentioned in the video, you can checkout this Adobe blog post to find out more about getting better performance inside Premiere Pro.

Intel Processors

We’re very thrilled to collaborate with Intel on this video. A couple of months ago they send me a computer with their latest Intel Core i9-7920X CPU. It’s a very strong processor with 12 cores running at a base speed of 2.90 Ghz. Having so many cores is important when you’re using heavy programs like Adobe Premiere Pro.

What I found very interesting after a few Skype calls with Intel, was to hear how close they work together with Adobe. Just like Nvidia, Intel wants to achieve the best performance and stability with the Adobe apps as well. They told me they had a few developers at Intel that work specifically for the purpose of Adobe software. Their marketing team also invited me to communicate any problems I had with the Adobe software. So it definitely felt they where taking this very serious!

The Intel core line looks as follow: i3, i5, i7 and now their latest generation i9. For every budget there’s a great solution!
