Hi, i am looking at getting a new computer and wanted to check if anyone knows how a Ryzen 5 2400G would go doing occassional basic 4K Editting. I am not a regular user, and most of the stuff i have is 1080p but i'd like to be able to do some 4K with x264 codec mp4 files in the range of 20 - 40MBPS (Files would only be short - 15 mins Maximum duration). I am on a budget and like the idea of just using the integrated graphics that come with it. Would 8 GB RAM be enough or would i NEED to get 16GB. I would be using a Samsung 860 EVO 500GB SSD for Windows 10 and programs, and reading the source file off a Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200RPM drive. I don't care how long it takes to render, i am just interested in the actual editing part where the CPU can really struggle while scanning through the video file. It would be good if i could edit x265 4K files but would be prepared to convert them to x264 with handbrake if need be to edit them? Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.

That Ryzen processor rates a 10,000 on these benchmark texts -- which means you should do just fine with 4K video.

More RAM is always better, so I'd go with 16 GB if that's an option.

PowerDirector 17 also supports H.265 video in its workflow, so you should not have to convert HEVC video in order to edit it in CPD.

Thanks, I've currently got 8GB RAM and Task Manager never shows me using anymore than just under 7GB with 1080p so i wanted to check if 4K would use more RAM. As far as x265 goes i'd heard it was a lot more demanding on the cpu than x264 so i wasn't sure if the cpu would struggle too much with it. I'd heard that you need at least 6 cores for 4K video editing but obviously it varies with different programs so wanted to get some feedback from Power Director 17 Users as when i get my new computer i will be upgrading from Version 11 to 17. Obviously with Version 11 i can't do any 4K editing to see how my current cpu (i7 3770k) which is pretty close on performance with the Ryzen 5 2400G i'm looking to get.

welcome to the forum.

your i7-3770k has enough horse power to do 4K. it's the PD11.

Quote ... to do some 4K with x264 codec mp4 files in the range of 20 - 40MbPS (Files would only be short - 15 mins Maximum duration). ...

because of your 4K bitrate, you'll see little of hesitation, jump, ... during the transition period. high video bitrate(>50Mb/sec) will increase in preview stutter, hesitation, jump, skip, gasp... etc.

current cpu will work with PD17 just fine. go ahead and upgrade to PD17, now. you'll notice that PD17 is a lot faster than the old fart PD11. ^^

happy happy joy joy
