Question: Does anybody have any idea how well the iMac 27inch 5K Retina display 3.4ghz handles 4K video editing?

Haven’t got the iMac yet but defiantly considering it for various task such as video editing but really wanted to know wether it will be able to handle 4K video footage, in Premiere Pro CC. If anybody has any previous experience with the same model or similar spec then your advice would be much appreciated!






Full specs...






3.4GHz - Intel Quad Core i5



16GB DDR4 RAM
2TB Fusion Drive

Radeon Pro 570 - 4GB Graphics

I recently bought the iMac with the Radeon Pro 580, and it's doing just fine with 4K video, although I've not pushed it yet. I don't think the 580 is too different from the 570. It does have 8GB VRAM though.


I only have 8GB ram, but will be buying a couple of extra modules soon...... another thing, I use FCPX, not PPCC.

Thanks for the points! Yes, it's been fine and I'm importing 4K as is, i.e. not optimising or creating proxy.


I did hear that an i7 would help video as it multi-threads or something, but I have the standard i5 and it's doing great, so far.
