Hi, I work as a freelancer and my field is video editing. I have core 2 duo pc but it goes stuck when I start rendering the video. Do you think I should change my CPU or buy a good GPU ?. Kindly recommend me a good one
Then why most of people buy GPU?. I did a lots of searching and spend my hours on it and all i heard people are prefer GPU more than CPUCPU for sure, for video editing you want someting that performs well in multithreaded workloads. This is where the AMD Ryzen CPU's absolutely wipe the floor with Intel. However it would require a different motherboard as Intel & AMD use different chipsets & socket types.
I have mostly heard high core count CPUs being recommended for such tasks but I suppose that would be if render times were unacceptable. I've looked at a few threads on reddit just now and it seems the general consensus is that a GPU can be better if real-time playback when there's lots of effects is what gives you issues.Then why most of people buy GPU?.

Rendering a video really takes time. On my desktop that is running on Windows XP it takes about an hour to render a video of 10 minutes long. If I would have a video card then the speed would be faster by 50% or even more depending on the memory of my desktop. My friends say that the laptop is better to use in video editing because the motherboard is designed for the image. I am not sure about it because it is the desktop that I had been using all the time.
