    good comparison and video. I think Macs can run circles around your average store bought PC's, But obviously the right custom built PC can run with a Mac. I have built custom PC's since 2001 and keep with them for game use. My current best PC has an AMD Phenom II x6 2.8ghz from 2010 and can play the same games as the PS4. Also has 12GB RAM and GTX 960 FTW.

    iMAC is also a PC but it is marketed as so called iMAC.
    iMAC is designed for fashion not performance. The hardware inside are much cheaper but Apple overcharges customers a lot.
    When building PC we can buy very powerful hardware in much lower prices individually. Then after that, we only need to assemble and PC is ready. So, the price is very low compared to iMAC and the performance is way better.

    with macbook pro 2018 price i can buy one high end pc with nvidia rtx 2060 inside, no wonder why macbook pro or imac slower than pc cause it's prioritize the visual design. Not the performance, i even read one of the macbook pro 2017 and it still use dual core & intel hd graphics for their products, i mean why ? it's 2019 not 2010 :(

    Get an intel processor. Adobe doesn’t Utilize the more cores and threads the AMD’s may have. Adobe is slacking on Optimizing AMD’s processors instead adobe focuses on single core performance and higher clock speeds. Inaccurate test between the MacBook and Pc

      Tf you mean it utilizes the cores based on how demanding the workload is 😂😂😂 doesn't matter what cpu 😂😂😂 adobe can use as many cores as it wants providing the work load is "hard" enough on it. Also while rendering all cpu cores are being utilized (for both amd and intel....)

    PC is love besides it is not easy to optimize software for windows
    As windows may be installed on several different architechtural computers i.e. ivy bridge, coffe lake sky lake, zen, etc as there are alot of architectural different hardwares for pc so apps are less optimized but more portable.
    Hope that helps you.

  • WaynesWorkVlog
    WaynesWorkVlog Month ago

    3:43 just a couple quick notes...
    IF your office network speed is the same or faster than HALF (i will explain) of the external hard drive's write speed, then just connect the two computers over the network with file sharing and drag and drop between the two. (Half because if your drive writes at 100MB/s then you have to write it to the drive and then write it to the pc from the drive. thats 2x write cycles at 100MB/s... if your network speed is 50MB/s or better, its faster to do it over the network.)
    There are MULTIPLE free programs that allow Windoze to connect to, read, and sometimes even write to OS X formatted drives. (even if you can only read, you just want the files off the mac drive onto the PC)
    There is even a Mac app that allows you to do all that on an NTFS drive.
    again just a couple notes... take em or leave em... I'm just an old dude that has been transferring files since floppy discs... and i do mean the huge square floppy ones, not the little 1.44MB hard ones.

    A. I’d like to test your custom PC against my custom Hackintosh. And B. Premiere is just not optimized for the Mac. If you’re going to edit on the Mac, just give in and use Final Cut Pro. If you hate Final Cut Pro and lots of people do, go for an all Windows workflow. You’ll still be a nice person. Although I often sense your dark side.

      Huh. Doesn't look like a waste of time to me!

      And your videos have how many views? Wait, let me go look ...... Ummmmm ........ wait ....... ahhhhhhh ??????????
      I can't find a single one. Huh, imagine that. Well damn.

      It wasn't a waste of time. She learned something. When you learn something it is NEVER a waste of time. And she then shared what she learned.

      And the video wasn't just about a desktop vs. a laptop. But it is obvious that you can't see that and learned nothing. So for you, I guess it was a waste. But you chose to watch it in spite of it's title. So the only one responsible for the waste is you. You for watching it, not her for making it.

      Oh and look. Now I've wasted my time replying to you! Because I doubt that you learned anything from it either. Well shit!

    • pnudabrewer

      @thegeorgezila iff you really have a minimum of computer knowledge you wouldn't even do this comparison. Every one should know the desktop will perform better. This video is just a Waste of time

    • thegeorgezila
      thegeorgezila Month ago

      It's comparing one tool to another. Both of which do the same job. The fact that one is portable and one isn't is not relevant. Getting the job done is. And the desktop is superior in getting that job done ( 20 minutes vs. 1 hour + ) in this case.

    Actually, for a 15min video, she said very little. Obviously, the more RAM, CPU, HD you have the FASTER it will be, regardless of platform. As a windows user for most of my life, I wanted to understand the difference in experience. I guess Adobe products are the same across platforms? What about Color Management? Workflow? Anything different there? I really like the MacBook single computer utility vs a dedicated laptop and a dedicated workstation. But after 15min, all I learned was a faster computer will render video faster.

      You saw the difference in the video. 20 minutes vs. an hour +.

      But if you can afford to sit and wait the extra 40+ minutes, and not be able to use your computer while it does, then use the laptop.

    I think it's cool that you did this video but you went about it in the worst possible way. Let me enumerate some points:
    1) Windows PC running Adobe Premiere CC support OpenCL Rendering as well and it's not slower or faster then CUDA
    2) The main reason why the Desktop is faster is cause it a DESKTOP! Laptop parts are slower due to thermal and power restraints even if it's the same part.
    3) Yes Final Cut is optimized like crazy for mac but also for certain workflows. However it it not a proper control for comparison as it's not the same program. Theoretically if Final Cut existed for windows it still would be faster on the desktop.
    4) If you love your magic mouse so much just set one up on your windows machine. (yest it's possible)
    5) You can have space bar preview you just need "QuickLook" it's a free app in the windows store.
    6) Although I agree that airdrop is super cool there are software options, also you can just plug in your phone; bonus it will probably transfer much faster.
    7) For you keyboard issues Command is Control and Option is ALT. Also once more you can just get an apple keyboard for you PC and remap your keys how you like it.
    Finally all you really needed to do is build a hackintosh with the appropriate apple wifi/bluetooth card (for air drop and all that jazz) and then everything would work just like a real mac.

    I ask that next time you do a video like this that you do your homework first , especially with all the little tweeks and apps you can use to emulate the apple environment that you did not cover.

    Lots of unwarranted hate on the Apple products in the comments, but that's expected at this point. I personally have never owned anything Apple since the 4th gen iPod touch. I can still see why people like using their products. It's what they're used to, and it works. I loved your CUDA explanation. It's very digestible to those that aren't big hardware nerds. Yay for reppin Ryzen; It's an excellent choice for your workflow.

    • thegeorgezila

      " ... unwarranted hate on the Apple products ... "

      Unwarranted? Haven't been paying attention lately have you.

      Holding your phone wrong?
      Overheating that causes them to run at a speed that is lower then it's base clock.
      A poorly designed keyboard that costs $700 to replace ( might be wrong on the price, but forcing people to pay to replace a crap keyboard? )?
      Refusing to repair hardware ( saying it can't be fixed. When it actually can be. Or charging $1000 dollars for a $75 repair? )
      Gluing it shut so it can't be repaired?
      Telling people that you can't open the case because the batteries will ( might ) explode?

      To name just a few.

      Okay, if you say so.

    “Usually creative types use apple products” maybe in your industry lol as an audio technician, i switched over from a macbook to a PC as a huge number of producers are nowadays for a plethora of reasons including better price to performance ratio, better driver support for audio gear, etc.

      That is what went through my head, not really a fair contest, a overclocked desktop vs small form factor laptop.
      This is coming from someone who is not a Mac fan and have always used Windows PC devices, a interesting comparison would be to use a Windows Laptop like my gl702zc vs the mac book The GL702zc uses the same processor as Sara's desktop a Ryzen 7 1700 which is a 8 core beast and does make short work of editing (and is probably one reason it was much faster in the comparison) it has a mid tier rx580 gpu and is a lot cheaper than the mac.
      I expect GL702zc is a lot heavier and less portable as well and tbh probably not as well made :).

What you want (and need) is wire up your office with 1GB or even better 10GB ethernet and use good old SMB between your MacBook and the 4TB of hard drive storage on the PC (which should be in RAID 0 to make it even faster since they are mechanical drives not SSD)
