The Particular Requirements of Adobe Content Creation

Perhaps you’re editing video with Adobe Premiere Pro or creating visualizations with Adobe After Effects. Maybe you’re 3D texturing a film with Adobe Substance 3D Painter. Whatever Adobe software tasks you’re working on—and there are many to choose from—you can’t afford to be held back by a computer that’s not performing well. As a creator, you want to stay in the flow state.

The last thing you need is a system that can’t keep up with running all the applications you need—or that hiccups on importing and exporting video and leaves you hanging during long wait times for media renders. That means you need a computer with enough memory and CPU to keep you whizzing along without interruption.

At the same time, faster isn’t enough; computers also need to be stable. Errors and crashes can lead to lost work and—even worse—lost productivity. Productivity losses also occur when systems can’t be expanded to meet the demands of heavy-duty video and visualizations—such as running multiple graphics cards or capture cards for video editing and 3D rendering.

Intel and Adobe have worked together for more than 20 years to optimize the creator experience and help ensure content creation is seamless and powerful. And in that time, Intel has created hardware that’s fine-tuned for your specific needs.

Intel-Based Workstations Deliver a Clear Advantage for Adobe Users

Intel processor–based workstations deliver the multimedia performance that your content creation demands because they’re built for specialized productivity. Whether you’re using Adobe Premiere Pro for video editing or Adobe Substance 3D Painter for texture painting, you’ll get faster renders on all your complex graphics. You’ll also get processing power that’s robust enough to keep up with high-demand jobs. In addition, ample memory supports larger tasks, while large hard drives can handle your most massive jobs.

When it comes to reliability and stability, Intel-based workstations are built specifically to protect your data, so you can keep working without downtime. Hardware errors can be both detected and managed—often automatically in the background. For instance, error correcting code (ECC) memory augments system memory to detect and correct errors and help ensure the integrity of essential data, without interrupting your workflow.

Intel-based workstations also support new features in the latest release of Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects.

When it comes to artificial intelligence (AI) features with Adobe Sensei and machine learning (ML), you’ll get the same assurance of performance. For instance, Adobe Sensei—which powers Remix in Premiere Pro—incorporates the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit natively, yielding the performance benefits of tuned libraries, frameworks, and other optimizations. The same is true for other AI features, such as voice to text.

Intel-Based Workstations Support Creatives with Power and Choice

Many Adobe content creators have personal preferences when it comes to choosing a workstation with Intel® Xeon® or Intel® Core™ processors. But whichever you choose—and whether you need mobile or stationary units—Intel-based workstations are all built to keep you productive and efficient. System builders like Dell Technologies, Lenovo, and HP offer a wide range of workstations to meet different requirements, starting with hardware choices for the type of work you do and whether you need mobility.


  • Mobile and entry workstations with Intel® Core™ processors: The performance hybrid architecture of latest gen Intel® Core™ processors yields increased performance and efficiency for Adobe workloads. The architecture features Performance-cores (P-cores) for single- and lightly-threaded performance and Efficient-cores (E-cores) for scaling multi-threaded workloads1. You can enable higher-bandwidth connection points using 20 lanes (16 PCIe 5.0 and 4 PCIe 4.0) to drive discrete graphics and storage performance. Get added power with overclocking capabilities and advanced tuning support via Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel XTU). In addition, Intel Quick Sync Video powers fast performance on 12th Generation Intel Core processors with multiple media codecs.
  • Stationary workstations with Intel Xeon W-3300 processors: A single-socket solution provides uncompromised performance, expanded platform capabilities, and enterprise-grade security and reliability capabilities. These workstations support next-generation professional applications with heavily threaded, input/output (I/O)-intensive workloads for media and entertainment. They also feature up to 116 PCIe lanes for expert-level expandability. Accelerate performance for image and audio/video processing with Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel AVX-512), a set of instructions that can accelerate performance for workloads such as image and audio/video processing. Finally, motion graphic workflows with Adobe After Effects can utilize faster rendering times with Multi-Frame Rendering.

If you have specific requirements, don’t forget that Intel partners can customize workstations for your precise content-creation needs. For instance, you can customize processor, clock speed, memory, and the number of PCIe lanes for expandability.
