              Let's clear something out Linus, I like your videos but you're mistaken twice ina row. The main reason for the problem in Premiere Pro with 8k footage is not CPU.
              It's your reading speed. (*.*)

              You are running an SSD over Sata2 connection with 250mb/s at "max".
              You can't even play an 8k (red) footage realtime with this bandwidth.
              How do i know? I'm running a x5460 with sata2 SSD...

                                      Just proves you that high end hardware is not worth it in the long run, always buy mid-high tier hardware, you will always find balance somewhere in the middle

                                                            This 11 year old processor runs Doom better than my FX-8320 overclocked to 4.1 Ghz with a GTX-1060 runs Roblox by a million times. People really underestimate Roblox and don't realize it has serious optimization issues. Input delays of over 1 second on max settings, almost all Roblox games, with a 1060.
