More info: https://goo.gl/34QgzY Exclusive tutorials: http://tomantosfilms.com/store/ I previously did a few posts/videos about my custom 4K video editing laptop. You can see them here https://youtu.be/TWrmjO2ZLgI here https://goo.gl/bF6hqA and here https://goo.gl/yjYMB6 and also my raw 4K video editing desktop build: https://goo.gl/F4zydH In this post, I want to share with you my experience of using another editing computer - the HP Z640. This system was lent to me by Z Workstations, a company that customizes HP Z workstations for video, photo and audio professionals. https://zworkstations.com/ The benefit of going with Z Workstations, rather than HP Direct, is that they offer more configuration options and lower prices. In the professional editing world, the HP Z workstations are very popular. Both AVID and Autodesk have HP as their only Windows-based authorized system. Adobe raves about the HP Z workstation as well. Here is the link to the exact system I used: https://zworkstations.com/configurations/40668/ Some of the specs: •18-Core 2.3GHz Intel Xeon Haswell E5-2696 v3 [18-cores / 36-threads] •64GB of 2133MHz DDR4 ECC Registered RAM •500GB PCIe Flash Storage (~1500MB/s) •GTX Titan X 12GB (Pascal) •Windows 10 Professional 64-bit UPDATE! This system actually has a single 64GB memory module. Mistake was made in the video recording, which is why in the video I say there are 4 bars of 16GB memory modules. Key points I wanted to mention are: •The processor has lots of cores •Nice amount of memory •It has very fast SM951 NVMe flash storage - it performs at about 1500MB/s •I like the Pascal Titan X GPU - it provides fantastic performance at a reasonable cost Overall, it's an nicely balanced system built with quality, high-performing components. Please watch my full review to see how well the system performs. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Remember, in filmmaking there's no problems, just a lack of solutions!
