Default Win 7 4K PC specs

I've just been asked to spec a WIN 7 PC that will be used for 4K video editing. I work in a corporate environment where Win 10 is years off!

Our IT department will be buying it for me so I have to provide basic component information and they will be supplying it. (centralised system)

It will be running Edius with a Decklink 4K Extreme 12G card. (I really want a GV Storm 12G card but that unfortunately only exists in my imagination!)

At this stage I'm kinda thinking:

Processor: I7-7700
Memory : 64 Gb DDR4-2133
Storage: SSD 512 GB C drive, 2x 3GB HGST Deskstar (or similar) (data drive), SATA 6Gb/s as raid
Graphics: GeForce GTX1080Ti
Media devices: BD R/W, USB 3 card reader (SD, CF etc), 4K video editing I/O card (Blackmagic Design DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G)
Ports: I am assuming there will be the usual compliment of ports

I know the Decklink card needs a beefy power supply and two slots.

I am concerned to get the most powerful system for Win 7.

Does this list look anywhere near compatible/good enough? Are there better components I should be requesting

with thanks

Jim

Thanks,

I'm planning on getting Sony F55/BMD Ursa mini 4K cams with global shutters and lower compression codecs where possible.

I do have GH4's for interviews and documentary work. Hate the rolling shutter though! and awkward form factor. Emphasis is on the high end cam file editing though.

Also not sure if newer i9's work in win 7?

I see OC UK doing pre binned 7900x at 5.3ghz but these are 6 core/12 thread - better off with 10 core/20 threads at 4.3ghz for pure grunt - no?

....now I see a 10 core 7900X at 4.5Ghz binned and un lidded - so for 850 quid UK, that's pretty good - coupled with a 1080ti and my raid SSD pci 1600mbs C drive...mmm, time to go shopping!

The problem with de-lidded cpus is the warranty. You loose the Intel warranty, which now can include protection for overclocking if the user purchases it. The plan for the 7900x is $79.
https://click.intel.com/tuningplan/purchase-a-plan
If the de-lidding company gives a 3 year warranty then it becomes a wash.
I've only seen 1 year warranties.

The 6950x was capable of 4.5Ghz with the fastest core clocked to 4.5Ghz and the rest at 4.2-4.3Ghz(Affinity settings) without de-lidding.
The 7900x should be able to reach 4.5GHz in the same manner with one exception, it should be able to clock the 2 fastest cores to 4.5Ghz and the rest to 4.2Ghz-4.3Ghz and stay within temp range with a push pull fan setup on an AIO radiator setup.

Edius keys from the fastest core: Single threaded performance, which still comprises most of Edius's functions, is driven from this speed.

Hopefully, GV will add GPU assist to more options within Edius. The 'Z' series has GPU assist on H.264 files while the 'X' series must make that up in raw horsepower. The 'Z' series GPU boost equates to 1 extra layer on my 4790k.

We wont be de-lidding CPU's.

Further enquiries have led me to conclude that it is going to be easier in my present environment to source a PC from a tier 1 supplier so I am looking at a Dell t7910 video workstation:

http://www.dell.com/au/business/p/pr...workstation/pd

There are lots of options for processors, memory and graphics card.

At this stage I thought:

64G 2133MHz DDR4 (16x4GB) RDIMM ECC
NVIDIA® Quadro® P5000/6000 (K series doesn't do HDR)
Dual Xeons of some sort.. thanks for handy hint..."I would definitely prefer to have, e.g. 16 cores at 4GHz than 24 cores at 2.6GHz "

The other consideration is having a chassis that will power and fit the Decklink 4K Extreme 12G card and a Storm 3G card. The Dell looks quite good for this!

regards

Jim

I know that HP has a very good warranty here in the US. I don't know about Australia.

So what would you choose between i7 6950X on X99 or i9 7900X on X299?
