      You have mountains of hardware and instead of doing a comparison in a separate test machine you rip out the server, change the hardware and only then do you do a comparison?

        The way Linus treats the hardware makes it obvious that he doesnt have to pay for it.

          why not use an epyc with virtualization, to have just the right amount of cores needed for the job?

                    Would love to see you guys run some tests with Resolve using your workflow. I think it would do a much better job taking advantage of this hardware. Adobe needs to focus on optimising it's software vs adding useless features and pushing updates that crash your system.

                                                      why not use a epyc, or TR chipset that is more geared for multicore performance? and upgrade to like nvme or just anything from this decade?

                                                        I have very little expertise with adobe premier, but wouldn't the encoding software itself play a huge role in this? Using ffmpeg, preset veryfast on a crf value of 18 on libx264, i did a 4K30p reencode of video game capture in Blackmagic RAW format of 30 minutes, and it took me around 40-45 minutes to complete and it gave me an average bitrate of 65-70Mbit/s (on a Ryzen 5 2600x clocked at 4GHz)
