Adobe Premiere Pro Workstation – System Requirements

Updated: Jul 10

Adobe programs like Premiere Pro and After Effects gain the advantage of being run on a powerful CPU and GPU. Many effects, including dissolves, color substitution, and warp stabilization, can now leverage the power of the graphics card’s CUDA cores resulting in improved performance.


When it comes to video editing, 2D animation, and motion tracking as well as warp stabilization & rendering previews operations, benchmark results show that they only use 6 to 10 cores at the most.


NVIDIA GPU acceleration through the Adobe® Creative Cloud™ and the new Adobe Anywhere platform gives creative artists and video editors tremendous speed and interactivity when and where needed. Adobe supports leading-edge NVIDIA® Quadro® and Tesla® GPUs.

There are two primary advantages to using a Quadro video card: they have greater VRAM (which is often necessary for 8K operations), and we have found them to be slightly more reliable over the long haul.

For 1080p Video Edit, and Premiere Pro Requirements, one can use either Nvidia Quadro T600 (4GB) or Nvidia Quadro T1000 (4GB) Graphics Card.

For 4K Video Edit and Premiere Pro Requirements, one can use Nvidia RTX A2000 (6GB) Graphics Card.


Video editing is a rigorous workflow that has a huge impact on your computer’s performance. That is why it is so important that your system has the RAM it needs to do such a task. Generally, 32-64GB of memory is recommended for Premiere Pro users, but for better certainty, they should allocate 3-6GB of memory to each core.

For 1080p Video Edit, and Premiere Pro Requirements, one can use 4GB RAM per CPU core. E.g. if you are selecting Holoware H6 7000 series workstation with 8 cores, then the required memory would be 32GB.

For 4K Video Edit, Premiere Pro Requirements, one can use 5GB per core formula. E.g. if you are selecting Holoware H6 5000 series workstation with 6 cores, then the required memory would be 30 GB or 32 GB of memory.


To get the most out of Premiere Pro, it’s generally useful to have a 3 to 4-drive arrangement.

In the first place, we think you’ll be better with a single NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen3 SSD, installed for your operating system and apps. Ensure that your workstation computer will be as responsive as possible by installing these extremely quick hard drives.

For the second option, we will set up your Workstation PC with a SATA-based SSD or a different NVMe SSD for caching, and your active project files. Separating the function from your application drive will greatly increase the speed of the drive.
