    Editing changes between i7-6700k & i9-9900k

    I just upgraded from an i7-6700k OC to 4.7GHz, RAM OC to 3.1GHz in a ASROCK 170OC Formula MB with a Samsung 850Pro SSD Boot Drive, to a i9-9900K OC to 4.7GHz, RAM OC to 3.1GHz in a ASROCK Z390 Extreme4 MB with a Samsung 970Pro NVMe M.2 SSD boot drive.  My three Samsung 4TB content drives and my Samsung 1TB export drive are the same.  No graphics card, only the built in Intel GPU(Best thing I ever did for PS stability). 

    I mainly am editing and creating 4k content now.  It was slow, but not painfully slow on the 6700k. I kind of lose my creativity when I'm waiting or dreading adding an effect to a 4k clip. I just thought I would share some of my experiences editing in PS21 with you because I couldn't find a single benchmark online for real world video editing, except for limited Adobe Premire encoding results.

    Time it takes to start PS21, no real noticeable differences, even though the M.2 Drive on the 9900k is seven times faster then the SSD on the 6700k and the 9900k has twice as many cores.  12 Seconds from clicking on the application icon until the splash screen goes away and you can edit.  Not what I expected, but I do have over 56k of clips and images in my library.

    Over all work and feel, marking in & out points and dropping them on the timeline, trimming clips, changing clip properties: Working on a 4k project with the 9900k is as fast as a 1080p project was on the 6700k.  1080p projects are like 720x480 projects.

    Background Rendering:  4K clips on the 9900k render as fast as 1080p clips rendered on the 6700k. 1080p clips on the 9900k render as fast as 720x480 clips rendered on the 6700k.

    The preview start, stop, frame advance, etc... is much more responsive.  It seems instant.  No more delay when previewing the timeline while a render was being performed in the background.

    The frame rate for the timeline scrubber is incredible and smooth.  More so than it has ever been in PS.

    2D Title editer takes less than two seconds to open on a 4k project. I never timed it on the 6700k, but it seems about the same.

    No noticeable change in speed or use of the library even with double the CPU cores, but I did not change the SSD drives with the library content, so maybe that is the holdup.

    Task Manager CPU & GPU usage differences:  I have not updated my Intel video driver yet.  I'm still running the driver 23.20.16.4973 from 2/28/2018.  It recognizes the new Intel UHD 630 in the 9900k and it has been so stable with PS in the 6700k, I am leaving it alone for now.  Of course results will vary due to timeline complexity.

        - 4K Content / 4K Export - On the 6700k, all CPU cores would run 100% and the GPU would run about 2-12%.  On the 9900k, all the CPU cores(Twice as many) run about 8% and the GPU runs about 80-90%.  It exports at about 50% the frame rate.

        - 4K Content / 1080p Export(Blu-Ray M2TS) - On the 6700k, all CPU cores would run 100% and the GPU would run about 2-12%.  On the 9900k, all the CPU cores(Twice as many) run about 40% and the GPU runs about 60-70%.  It exports at about 4x the frame rate.

        - 1080p Content / 1080p Export(MP4 Visual) - On the 6700k, all CPU cores would run 60% and the GPU would run about 80-90%.  On the 9900k, all the CPU cores(Twice as many) run about 8% and the GPU runs about 80-90%.  It exports at about 50% the frame rate.

        -  PS21 Sky is the Limit Project 1080p60 MP4(Visual) export is 127 seconds.  CPU & GPU Usage goes all over depending on source clips.  See attached.

        -  PS21 Sky is the Limit Project 1080p30 MP4(Visual) export is 61 seconds.

        -  PS21 Sky is the Limit Project 720x400 29.97 MP4(Visual) export is 17 seconds.

    Mercalli - 4k analyze is about half the clip frame rate.  Medium Export is about twice the clip frame rate.  This is a big increase in speed for 4k.

    Fusion Studio - Stitch GoPro Fusion FRONT & BACK of a 126 second clip to 4K 360 MP4 60FPS: 60 minutes on the 9900k, 80 Minutes on the 6700k.  This is not what I was hoping for.  Fusion does use the GPU of the 9900k now when stitching, the 6700k did not use the GPU. Maybe updating the Intel video driver would help this.
