I use this desktop primarily for photograph and video editing. I use Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Pro CC. The demand is with video editing and encoding.
The following is the graph I plotted during a session of video editing (first 80%) and encoding (the last 20%). It was a 4Kp30 video.
It seems that CPU had plenty of room of proficiency while the GPU hit the wall in quite a few place.
Does that explain that, sometimes, scrubbing the video was choppy at time?
Would you recommend upgrading to a more proficient GPU, if so, what would be your suggestion (without breaking the bank, i.e. budget for an amateur, not a prof).
