Default New computer for Edius 9

Hi to all of you Edius enthusiasts and experts,

Having made the step from 6.5 to 9
a new computer seems a must specially while editing 4K.

Specs :

anteccase afi vsk4000e
SAMSUNG SSD 960 EVO M.2 25OGB
MZ-V6E21sOBW
IA/D 3TB SATA 6cbs 64MB
thermaltake SMART 650W 80+ Bronze rr
FIaYLP Cable
lntel Core i7-77O0K Kaby Lake Quad-Core
4.2GHz LGA 115'l 91WCPU (8X8067717
ASUS NVIDIA GF ROG GTX1OSOTI4GB
7008MHZ 128B
STRIX-GTX1 OSOTI-4G-GAM ING
32 GB CORSAIR MEMORY
CMU16GX4M2C32OOC1 6R DDR4
32OOMHZ 16GB HEAT SPRRED LED
't_35V
ASUS TUF Z27O MARK2LGA1151 Z27O
MAX 64G
LICENSE WINDOWS 1O HOME

Now having been working with win 8.1, I dread switching to win 10
reinstalling Edius 9 to win 10 seems to me being very arduous and some other apps might not be compatible. So What gives ?

Some of you have been through this, so any insight would be more than welcome. As I thought staying with win 8.1 and using an app to transfer files and settings from the old to the new computer.

To all, the best for this NewYear and many happy editing returns.

Phil

Are you making a new computer with these components or already have the machine? If buying a new computer buy a Coffee Lake and not a Kaby Lake as the Coffee Lake is about the same price and more powerful.

Regarding Windows 10 vs Windows 8 I would recommend Windows 10 on a new machine. I did not find a huge difference between the two when it comes to compatibility with programs and nearly everyone has "dumped" Windows 8 these days. Pretty much all development is based on Windows 10 these days.

Hi Philippe
Forget about all the misinformation floating around about Win 10, especially as you are going to use a NEW up to date computer

As you are coming from Win 8 you will be in for a pleasant surprise

I use Win 10 HOME, the only problem I really have is it is running on a 10yr old very powerful computer and there are no motherboard drivers for Win 10, so it is running on the Widows generic drivers and updates replace one very crucial driver every time that makes windows see my SSD as a normal HDD

The last update caused me some real angst because of this and the real problem was me trying to keep the activation of Edius safe so ran into the problem of limited Activation / deactivation per 30 days which is 2 or 3 (Not sure how many but it is small}
Other than that it has been easy to recover from the problems of the old Motherboard until now which required a few days and settings changes. but all is fixed

As to older programs, Win 10 is the most tolerant I have seen and I have a number from XP days that run perfectly in XP Compatibility Mode
This is all like the the who ha about Quicktime

I am sure once you change to Widows 10 you will forget all this
Hope that helps
Regards Barry

I"d definitely would go for a i7 8700k over a 7700k, they are priced similarly and the 8700k has a build in gpu so you can use quicksync (like the 7700k can as well) but the 8700k has 2 more processors so application that rely on processorcount will get a significant boost in performance.

I too was skeptical about win 10 while I was using win 7 but I decided to make use of the free upgrade to 10 when it was offered, the only thing I don't like is that microsoft makes it a lot more difficult to control which system updates you don't want to apply but other then that win 10 has been a mostly trouble free experience, it's been very stable and as time progresses you want to have a OS that is constantly updated to make sure your programs continue to work. Older hard- and software compatibility is also pretty good on win 10.

Thanks ever so much - technician says impossible to find Coffee here in Canada and says Intel has no idea as to possible future deliveries. Need computer for yesterday and cannot wait for possible import.
Cheers !

Thanks a lot friend - When transferring Edius do I have to simply deactivate in the old computer and reactivate in the new. As simple as that ?

Why would you build a new computer on old technology, the Z270 chip set is old. Order the i7 8700k from https://www.bhphotovideo.com/ or Newegg.com , they deliver to Canada. You can overclock to 5GHZ easy with a Liquid cooler.

Strange you can't find Coffee Lake processors in Canada. They are in stock in the Uk and have been for a couple of months. the Kaby Lake is very good - I was happy with it until the Coffee Lakes arrived which are definitely better.

Now with a brand new computer and win 10 cannot for the name of....!!.reinstall Edius 9 - Their infamous Gv Licence mgr is in the way and I simply cannot run de program. I'm trying in vain to comprehend this and after trying zillion times it's still a merry go round. And to think that I reinstalled Cyberlink at the very first try! Don't know if you can get a refund from Digital River ? Thanks for previously trying to help !

I must now modify the above statement, as a nice representative of GV called Veronica has righted this matter in no time after hearing the full détails of my relations with this company. So HOURRA and many thanks Veronica I can breathe again and this new computer with Edius9 is just terrific !! Have a nice day everyone.
