Topic: Is a 1600 good enough for video editing?   Go to last post
Posted: Sunday, July 30, 2017 5:07:15 PM(UTC)
Hi guys, my gf started making youtube videos a little while ago and I've been editing the footage on my old sony vaio flip 14 with an I5 4200u and integrated graphics. It's awful, video playback is like a slideshow and exporting the final video takes up to 8 hours and heats my laptop up into the 90's C.

So youtube is starting to actually get serious and I've been planning a ryzen build for 1080p editing and some gaming. Problem is, I've never had a good cpu so I have no idea if a 1700 would be massive over kill, or worth it for future proofing.
