Best Computer for Video Editing
Every feature of this Professional Video Editing Workstation has been designed to bring you the quickest, most powerful performance available in a serious video editing machine, without compromising the silence needed in an ideal multi-media and video production environment. We use large, efficient CPU coolers to silently cool your CPU. We also use Corsair HX Platinum Series power supplies, which are the ideal combination and true silence, power, and ultimate reliability backed by their 10-year manufacturer warranty. We use use lightning fast SSD drives for your video workstation system drive (drive you run your programs on) because they are dead silent, extremely reliable, and lightning fast. We swap out every case fan in the Professional Video Editing Workstation with a silent high quality Nexus or Noctua fan. The case and case layout were chosen for airflow, heat dissipation, and noise isolation.
The heat-producing NVIDIA® GTX and Quadro® Video Cards cannot be cooled with specifically designed silent video card coolers, but are very reasonable as far as noise is concerned, and with the combination of quiet features in the case, and additional silencing options such as case insulation, this Professional Video Editing Workstation not only rates among the top performing video editing computers available, but is the quietest PC of its caliber.

Video Editing Workstation Core Components
The Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family can boost overall server performance by up to 50% over Intel® E5 v4 Xeon® processor-based servers. Intel® Xeon Scalable enables a 4.2 times more VMs (virtual machines) per server compared to the previous generation. Integrated I/O on the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family accelerates data availability to the processing cores, reducing latency by up to 30%. Scalable also increases memory bandwidth and capacity with the inclusion of six memory channels versus the four of the previous version. Further, especially important for video production, Xeon Scalable includes AVX-512 (Advanced Vector Extensions) doubling the flops per clock cycle over the previous version boosting performance in applications such as modeling, simulation, analytics, machine learning, data compression, visualization, and digital content creation.
Create with confidence using NVIDIA Quadro Meet the tightest graphics and video production deadlines and most stringent budgets using Quadro graphics solutions, built for professionals. Quadro GPUs offer faster performance with superior image quality and provide a fully-integrated and optimized workflow across the spectrum of the latest Adobe Creative Suite 3D applications, such as Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe After Effects.
Quiet Hard Drives Every PC we sell comes defaulted with some of the most silent hard drive options available. If you are looking for total silence choose an SSD. Solid-state drives (SSD) have no moving parts, so they make no noise, have blazing fast read times, and are super reliable. Our Video Production Workstation comes defaulted with SSDs for OS/Software, as well as for a video scratch disk, for smooth, fluid video processing.
