What Intel CPU is good for video editing?
- B. C. SchmerkerLv 53 weeks agoFavorite Answer
Editing uncompressed video is throughput-intensive, so I recommend an intel® 7th-Generation Core Processor i7-7920X (FCLGA 2066) and an X199 ATX motherboard with either an Advanced Micro Devices® Radeon® RX™ 580 or 5700 or an nVIDIA® geForce® RTX™ 2080 depending on software compatibility. Most X199 'boards can take eight DDR4-2666 main memory modules to support the i7-7920X; I recommend a full deck of 4 GiB modules (32 GiB total) as a baseline. For secondary storage, one SSD in the 256 GB ballpark for the OS and applications and one or more 1 TB NAS-grade hard drives for documents and projects. Both Antec® and LEPA® manufacture reliable power-supply units in the 1000+ watt class.

depends on the software. typically, a 9th Gen Core i7 is best.

Any of the new generation i3,i5,i7 CPU. With a Good Video Card (GPU) and at least 8GB of RAM. 16GB would be better.
The GPU is more important than the CPU when it comes to Video Editing.

You can edit video just fine on any of the mainstream ones (i3,i5,i7). For 4K or 8K video, you'll probably want an i9 or Xeon W.
